UK BIRTH RATE HIGHEST IN 40 YEARS DUE TO FOREIGN IMMIGRANTS – It is no secret that the UK is almost bursting at the seams with the incessant influx of foreign immigrants; who mainly come to settle in the UK due to their ability to live the good life off the backs of the hard working taxpayer.
According the Royal College of Midwives the UK is now gripped in such a crisis that they are having to close maternity units simply because there are no beds or sufficient midwives to cope with the growing demand. It has also appealed to the government with figures that clearly indicate, with the continuous influx of immigrants and their birth rates, the UK would require an additional 5,000 midwives, in England alone, to cope with the growing birth rate.
“Maternity units are under intense strain, with many midwives really at the end of their tether. We are reaching a crucial tipping point for maternity services.” Cathy Warwick, chief executive of the RCM
It is amazing to think that some parts of the country, mainly where there is a large population of foreign immigrants, have seen the regional birth rate rise as much as 63% per year.
In a small country, that is already overpopulated, it is perceived, that if we do not pull out of Europe, the 2014 Right of Movement legislation could potentially see over 25 million Romanian and Bulgarian immigrant flocking to the country, which would tip the population to nearly 100 million and bring about the collapse of our Social Services, Welfare, Education and Healthcare systems – none would simply be able to cope with this invasion.
According to statistics there were nearly 690,000 births in the UK in 2011, a figure experts say is going to increase year on year which could well hit over 750,000 per year by 2014 – and that is without the onslaught that will come about with the Right of Free Movement, if the UK remains in Europe.
When will our government finally realize that we can no longer sustain this level of growth? When will our government finally have the spine to tear up the Human Rights Act, tell Europe that enough is enough and start cleaning house?
We often look at populations, such as the Romanians and Bulgarians, with passion and sympathy but the truth is these people are not compassionate about our needs – the UK, for most, is simply a place where they can come and take, without ever being productive in the society.
Is it not about time that we stood back and asked why countries such as Romania and Bulgaria are poor? Most of their problems arise from a lack of government that is dedicated to working for the people, that is providing education, as a fundamental step, so that its population can be productive and prosper. Their failings appear to be our problem but it is a long overdue fact that it is time for the United Kingdom to stand back and say. “You make your own bed and you lie in it – if you want change, if you want prosperity then work for it, but do not look upon Britain as the land of opportunity where the good life is provided on the hard work of our taxpaying citizens.
