    It is sweet and seemly to go to a food river bank/shore? (Romans didn't have banks as such, maybe you should have looked up store or treasury) or maybe cura annonae

    Germans are probably just try to figure out how we had a city the size of Sheffield arrive every year without any new infrastructure. Will be interesting to see how they solve the same issue.

    You forget that a city the size of Bristol leaves the UK every year.
    And a city the size of Glasgow shuffles off this mortal coil every year

    And our economy requires a growing tax paying population to sustain itself.

    What do you mean, no new infrastructure? Blackfriars / Victoria / London Bridge stations look amazing now, Crossrail is continuing, and once they get the HS2 going it’ll be great.

    Oh, did you mean schools and hospitals? Those aren’t the priority of the current government’s backers...

    I would like to see the figures that backup up your first statement.

    The question is, why does vetran feel the need to post an article from the NYT from March 2018 about food banks in Germany?
    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    My sizing was from the 'official' immigration figures (280,000 last IIRC) and is Net.
