We don't need the countryside do we? Let's just fcuking tarmac over the whole lot... I'm prepared to risk unpopularity over developing the countryside, says David Cameron - Telegraph I've got a better way of ensuring we have enough housing and roads... stop breeding like fcuking rabbits. It's a very simple concept, the UK has a finite (and growing smaller) area for living on. Keep the population at a level where we can live comfortably in that area. If we don't manage this (through simple and economically viable methods) then soon enough we'll have squallid overpopulated dormatories, wher ethe out of work fester and turn to crime. We don't have to use the Chinese methods... yet. But it may well come to that. 243,610 km2. That is all we have. Meanwhile our population is going to boom. The curve of increase will get steadily steaper as our population explodes and rises exponentially. Famine/mal nutrition, civil disobediance, ill health, poor services and amenities (ie education)... I am sure our 'brave new world' will be fantastic.
