Report by John Bean.
As suggested by Mike Newland here (see his Sep 19 report) Sir David Attenborough is to be complimented for his realistic comments on aid to Africa. Who can seriously deny that the exploding population – at the highest rate in the world – means that there are too many people for the available land.
According to the US-based Population Reference Bureau, Africa’s population will more than double to 2.4 billion within 40 years, if birth rates stay as they are and there are no signs that they will fall – as long as Europe and the USA continue to feed them and provide modern medicine.
African mothers currently give birth to an average of 5.2 children, rising to 7.6 in Niger ( which is mainly Moslem), the country with the world’s highest fertility rate. This is close to five times the European average of 1.6 children born to each woman and unless this increases to 2.1 it means that the original white Europeans, from Britain to the Baltic to Bulgaria, will eventually become as extinct as the Dodo
It is hard to find the true figures of sub-Saharan immigration to Britain or to Europe in total. Apart from the desire of the liberal-left consensus to minimise the numbers in case they frighten the voters to do something, the main reason for this is that illegal immigration is facilitated by the ease with which Africans now arrive by sea in thousands monthly on Europe’s most southern coasts. However, figures published by our Office for National Statistics give an estimate of 1.2 million immigrants coming to Britain in 2011 from Sub-Saharan Africa. With illegals it is probably nearer two million ( and note that here I am only dealing with the problem of African, and not Asian, immigration). Another report for last year says that 102,000 people from Africa were living on benefits. For Europe as a whole, the only immigration figure I can find is eight million.
If we look at history countries have changed hands when armies have conquered them and are followed by the armies’ settlers. Neither Africa as a whole nor its individual nations have landed any soldiers on our shores. But sure enough we are slowly being conquered, not by military force but by the wombs of African women – and what’s more our decadent rulers of the old regime are subsidising them to do it.
