A reduction in population will automatically redress the demand on services,and with 2 million+ plus unemployed I doubt we will be seeing any adverse effects on economic growth from a reduction in numbers.
He is bang on the money with this.
There are way to many people cutting around these days.
In the past we have seen populations migrate to other area's to deal with crowding and resource consumption.But as we are finding out in quite an acute manner here in the UK,there is no more room.
As I see it we either have to stop breeding or venture outwards again...

Contrary to popular belief, the UK isn't 'full' (as if a notion really exists), and 94% of it hasn't been built on (we're still green and pleasant and all). But it's simply a matter that quality of life decreases, pollution increases and everyone hates everyone more and more.
Ideas for cutting population other than some Commie style one child rule or Nazi sterilisation programmes?
I rather like tax breaks for childless and adoptive couples.
