Estimated 800,000 to 1 Million illegals in the U.K., think that’s a little conservative. Glad to see even distribution though amongst the EU.
Estimates by Supermarkets based on food consumption put that figure much higher City Eye: Facts on a plate: our population is at least 77 million
snip "It is the statistic that dare not speak its name, though eventually it must. It has huge ramifications for the civil and political life of this country, the health of the equity markets and, most immediately, the residential property market. So don't forget you read it here first: the population of the UK is presently somewhere between 77 and 80 million.
The 2001 census, already hopelessly out of date and easy to avoid for those who find filling in forms a trifle inelegant, numbered us at a little under 59 million. But as statistics go, that one's most definitely a damned lie."
My sources for the above statement are good, but scared of admitting the truth for fear of incurring the wrath of Whitehall.
I have a second, respectable, source. A major, non-commercial agricultural institution reckons there are 77 million of us in the UK. Again, its reckoning is based on what we eat. That faint background noise you're hearing as you read this is the sound of everyone slithering off the record. Why? In political terms, standing behind these figures would be to toss a hand grenade into a vat of gasoline. People would be hounded out of a job for scaremongering.
This article is from 2007, the 2011 cencus figure was just over 63 million so on those figures the illegals could be as high as 14 million which quite frankly is frightening. One thing I am sure of is that there are an awful lot more people here than the govt. dare to admit and this is causing the massive strain on our whole infrastructure!
