Czech Rep 129
Denmark 126
Poland 118
Portugal 114
France 111

Looks like this little country of ours is getting just a bit crowded to say the least, we've got to draw a line somewhere or the bloody place will sink
Canada: 3.2 per sq. km. That's why we are so friendly; we rarely bump into one another

You know, in some parts of this big, beautiful country of ours this is true

However, I am surprised that GB will have that density of population ... I remeber when I was being force-fed geography at Accy Grammar, that the Netherlands had by far the most people per sq. mile. Is the increase in population all due to immigration? Or are the native brits having more kids?

A bit of both Eric, but at the rate people are queuing up in France for a chance to come to our Green and Pleasant land may have more to do with it than anything else

Green and pleasant! With all those folks walking on the grass Maybe Nancy Reagan's formula would work in this case: When it comes to more immigration; just say "no". It's your damn country for pete's sake. And there is a simple solution to this "open door" policy .... shut the bloody door

They've reclaimed a lot more of the Zeider Zee since you were at school.

Thus increasing the amount of space each person has to park their clogs on.

Makes sense .... so, if you bulldoze the Pennines and fill in the Lake District ......

And I'm infernally grateful that you didn't mention other things that have happened since I was at school; like the extinction of the dinosaurs .......

I wouldn't dream of being so rude.

(I think I'd better not mention another shocking piece of news just yet.)

Yes to the first part, a family made up of two members very soon becomes a family of sixteen or twenty when both parents are allowed to visit along with siblings from both sides and breeding begins in earnest.
20 years = 150 extended family............easy.

Well if you put it that way Roy, Its simplicity itself even why do the powers that be think of it that way and these people are supposed to be educated, mind you when you've got a guy in the cabinet called Balls what do you expect

Re: Multiculteral Britain - A No,No?

Well, I've certainly stirred up a hornets nest with this well meant debate. Interesting to get so many diverse points of view on what I feel will become a major point of focus in the next general election campaign. Tolerance has always been a recognised facet of the British nature, but boy oh boy, we are surely being sorely tested at the moment!

Regards, etc . . . Stumped.

Well Stumps your spot on on mate, but isn't that what Accy Web is all about seeking other peoples opinions, its just a pity that these type of forums have only just come to the fore, beats the hell out of writing letters to the local press then waiting a week for people to reply, I feel a song coming on "Instant replay" or better still instant reply

The Accy Site is indeed a brilliant forum for venting one's spleen. Let's just hope that our local politico's sit up and take notice - and maybe think very carefully before taking any decision to rename old Accrington Streets in accordance with muslim wishes.
Reckon I should give my soapbox a rest for a while now - the hornets are beginning to sting!

Dont go yet Stumped.....some nutter thinks we are going to be invaded with plastic ducks
If you come across one in Accy or Ossy give Rindy a shout...he has a pond.
If you go to Blackpool keep look out for them....If you find 'Robinson' on one and 'Crusoe' on the other you have won the jackpot....three pints of that loony broth that prompted this nonsense.

I spotted one in my grandson's bath. Tried to drown it, but the dratted creature just told me to cluck off!
