Britain's future

I don't, as it's highly likely the census figures are going to be squiffy. What may be an interesting assessment is to take vaccine jabs, and analyse the numbers from that, then compare to the census data.



That's without Astra's vaccine. They've not released that order yet so it's difficult to extrapolate, even if you assume 20 - 30% who won't be vaccinated, and whether the vaccines are just a once a year booster.

I was thinking of the number of jabs in arms, which can be tracked.

Only people on the books can get the jab. I agree with you though, the number given will be a indicator of an approximation of the population, then hopefully a decent guesstimate of illegals will give a truer figure of people here. Unfortunately until Border Farce persistently start kicking in shed doors and arresting people, we'll never really know. Personally, I think that we're at at least 20% immigrants in the population, that's legal and illegal.

I would venture that the number of UK issued driving licences would be a more accurate metric.
Forget National Insurance cards, one number can cover a multitude of people using it that either work or claim.
But I would also say that 3 million plus is a far more realistic figure for people accessing UK infrastructure and services that they are not entitled to, and have never paid towards.
With a small conservative c.

As regards the number of Covid jabs given, do we not collectively remember those mobile jab centres sent out to Chinatown and other places with a no questions asked policy?
The objective was jabs in arms, no questions asked and rightly so at that time.
 
Look! There's lots of jobs in the fruit and veg picking industry yet very few ethnic persons. I think it's only fair that some equality and diversity is shown in this sector. :cool:

Not so, from about July it was weapons free. You want the jab, show up and get stuck, no questions asked. That did raise the interesting concept of someone getting multiple jabs, and what would happen.
Equally, I think it's open season on boosters as well at current, show up, get boosted, no questions asked.

Didn't the supermarkets reckon the population numbers were greater than what
the Government claims, going by the number of shoppers

A lot of them are shared, one taxi, many drivers, one driving licence,

How did the 'Race War' begin grandad?
" Well lad, its like this, by imperial powers marching into other peoples country's, taking over, administering democracy, while slaughtering the indigenous population, ( America, Australia the Congo, india etc) but building them railways, roads, wells, planting crops, orchards, and digging coal, diamond, gold, oil and mineral mines, thus giving them payed employment, then, many years later, they got their independence,, and it all went to rats shit, and today the western powers are feeling the backlash.
its called progress son! ;)

When the Competition Commission did a thing on "is there enough competition in the supermarket industry" one of them submitted a UK population estimate of 77 million.

That was nearly 15 years ago when the official population was about 62 mill.

Yes, they reckoned that even for allowing for typical wastage they are selling enough food that would suggest about 80 million people in the UK

(Sorry pc flaps beat me)

Thanks for that, I couldn't remember the details,

Someone on ARRSE knows the answer, just ask.

I recollect that the sewage industry has estimated similarly. The food has to go somewhere.
 

So BT will employ people based on the colour of their skin?
And disproportionate to the demographics?

Now, can BT tell me with a straight face that is not blatantly racist!

Just what the **** is going on today?! Solve racism by creating, eh, racism? The socialists are in for a shock when the push back arrives.

FFS…

The very definition of affirmative action. Acceptable racism.

Over the last few days I've been wondering about population figures. I've had a nagging thought, that whilst we can't find the true figure from arguments about Sewage or food sales, one thing we stand a better chance of calculating with is CV19 cases and vaccinations.

Luckily a lot of data is given here:

According to given data we have the following numbers:
51mil given 1 dose.
46mil given second dose.

Both of which are under the supposed population of 66mil.

However...
First off we have 12.7mil under 16 (2019 figure so it'll be higher now), and so not receiving vaccination. So that needs to be added to the above numbers.
Then we need to add actual recorded cases. I've just taken case from the last 6 months, as that'd account for any dual infections, and to smooth out the inaccuracies in people whom are both vaccinated and have had a dose of CV19. That accounts for another 7mil people.

Obviously we've not taken into account breakthrough infections or the like, or the reduced protection from a single dose here. So this is an inaccurate measure in the extreme. However, It does seem to imply that we're well over the current population numbers, and if the Omicron tidal wave of cases materialises (as the data suggests) then we could get a good indication of numbers. But I think it'll require someone with a lot more experience and time to work it out.
