    The population of the UK is on course to reach 70 million over the next 16 years, official figures suggest. The Office for National Statistics (ONS) said it was set to rise from 62.3 million in 2010 to 67.2 million by 2020 and 73.2 million by 2035.

    It says just over two-thirds of the projected increase from 2010 to 2035 is either directly or indirectly due to migration.

    This will be due to people entering the UK, and also their future offspring.

    The ONS statistics say this change may be 47% directly attributable to future migration and a further 21% indirectly due to future migrants' children being born in the country.
    The effect of immigration is also expected to have an increasing impact.

    Some 2.1 million (44%) of the increase over the next 10 years could be down to net migration, the ONS added.
    The remaining 2.8 million (56%) is a projected natural increase as a result of births outstripping deaths.

    Projections for net immigration have been revised up by 20,000 to 200,000 a year since the last estimates two years ago.

    The projected UK population by 2020 is 0.7 million (1%) higher than the statistics suggested two years ago.

    The average age of people in the UK is also set to rise from 39.7 years in 2010 to 39.9 years in 2020 and 42.2 years by 2035.

    The number aged over 85 is expected more than double over 25 years from 1.4 million in 2010 to 1.9 million by 2020 and 3.5 million by 2035.

    Those people aged 90 and above is projected to more than triple by 2035, and the number aged at least 95 is projected to more than quadruple.

    The government has said it wants to cut non-EU immigration from about 200,000 to "tens of thousands" by 2015 through an immigration cap.

    Immigration Minister Damian Green said: "Immigration to the UK has been too high.

    "That's why we have made sweeping changes to get a grip on immigration in this country, closing down routes subject to abuse and taking action against those with no right to be here.

    "As people return home this evening crammed into public transport and on congested roads, they could well ask where all of these people are going to fit."

    "A managed migration policy can be a major part of the solution to the problems the UK faces."

    It's already sinking. Haven't you seen those things called fountains?

    Those are leaks in the ground and evidence we are sinking.

    Or try what some cold countries do and build structures beneath the ground. There's lots of space downwards, although different foundations are required for deep buildings.

    We can only cap non-EU immigrants, due to the 'freedom of movement' right, we cannot cap EU immigrants

    I'm on the fence. It did make me feel a bit let down to be driving through Birmingham and literally not see a single white Brit for a good 10 minutes. Immigration does benefit the country but not when entire sections of the country are taken over by people who don't seem to want to intergrate with the rest of the UK. I don't like feeling like a foreigner in my country of birth.

    Why is that a problem?

    Is your problem with having too many of 'them' or ghettoisation or what

    More ghettoisation, the contrast between two parts of town on the same stretch of road was unbelievable. Why should we split towns up when the idea of immigration is multiculturism is for all parties to participate rather than these shut-off parts of town where a white guy genuinley does look and feel out of place. I'm sure you could walk down the street without a problem but I guess it's changing the image of Britain's streets which look more unwelcoming.

    Have you any family there? I'm considering it too but it all depends on whether they actually want you, skilled migrants will find it much easier to get in. I think alot of people assume that Canada will just let you in if you ask nicely, Americans seem to do this alot. The UK is beginning to run out of space though.

    Canada has strict immigration stuff?

    That seems kind of strange, I mean they're the second largest country on the planet, you'd think they'd want more people.

    I mean they have 34 million people, and nearly 1 billion KM of land.

    Isn't it going bankrupt or something, though? I know I saw an article somewhere about financial issues...
    Bad debt 10 years after paying off all our national debt because of bailing out the banks. Thanks, American financial system! However, the UK is far from going bankrupt, my boy. It helps that we still have an AAA credit rating.

    Fucking disgusting. England is a fucking pisstake we need to stricten up, instead of having all of these cunts coming and leeching off our economy. Yeah, that's the Poles/Turkish, they live off benefits and often commit benefit fraud, they need to fucking sort England out for Gods sake. As soon as I'm 18 I'm fucking out of here, hopefully my family too.

    I'm descended from Polish immigrants, and I can assure you they are fine hard working people whom immigrated in the 1970s. (My mother and grandparents being Polish.)
