2nd April 2012: Last week, Andrew Brons MEP wrote to the editors of Britain's national newspapers and those newspapers covering his Yorkshire and Humber Euro-Constituency, concerning the Government's lifting of planning restrictions.
"The Government is planning to concrete over large tracts of the British countryside to provide the additional 2.2 million homes for projected rises in population in the next eight years, effected by immigration and the high birth rates of recent immigrants. Whilst the birth rate of the indigenous population has fallen steadily, Third World immigrant birth rates are at Third World levels.
"It is estimated by government statisticians that the United Kingdom population will rise by 5 million in the next eight years, reaching 67.2 million in 2020, 70 million in 2025 and 73.2 million in 2035.
"The Conservatives promised, at the last General Election, to reduce ‘net immigration’ (a flawed concept in itself) to ‘tens of thousands’. In fact, net immigration in the year following the General Election was 250,000 and exceeded the 235,000 for the last year of the previous Government.
"It would appear that the Government is now planning ahead to pay for its future (as well as its past) broken promises on immigration, with the sacrifice of England’s green and pleasant land."
