The humid one. You know like Ipswich Town centre.

Full of the smells of rice and beans.

Oh that’s disappointing, I went to San José once, it was really humid, didn’t like it at all.

I do like how one of his responses was of the form,

Other EU countries agree with me, so that is good.

ECHR is a foreign court so that is bad.

Very, especially if your milk was produced by a different mammal, for the purposes of making its baby get big quickly.

Yea, he was so good in that, I thought he was Irish, but did really good accents in everything else.
Funny what gets stuck in your head when a youngster.

It’s only now I leaned he was a Canadian.

Yep, I understood you the first time, it will all be fine in a few generations, nothing to get worried about.

People have been saying the same thing for decades, so, yep, I trust it will all work out.

That’s a very optimistic view.

I don’t think the things that evolve and wonder about Stonehenge will worry too much that for a couple of hours 10,000 years ago it had some Orange cornflour on it.

Shame people didn’t think stuff through from the 1970’s onwards.

Still, nothing to worry about, someone will be along to fix it.

You are considering the wrong figures.

By the way using a house as a model for running a country is a bad idea.

But…

If you have a house with one baby, and 5 elderly people, that’s not as good as two babies, 4 working adults and 2 elderly people.

One of those houses is sustainable, the other is doomed.

Farage and others have been using very simple numbers, to describe a complex problem.

Another example, pre- Brexit, someone from the EU could pop over to the U.K. for 50 quid on Ryan Air, find some work, pop off back home whenever. See also U.K. people leaving to work in the EU. Free movement of labour.

Now we are open to the world and in charge of immigration, with no free movement, people won’t be popping over from Bolivia, they will be migrating and staying.

One leads to a different demographic outcome.

And it is demographics that are more important than a simple number.

At the moment the birth rate in the U.K. is about 1.6-ish children per women.
For a stable population it needs to be 2.1.
