Does anyone else think Britain is too populated now?
I do, my area in Cheshire is very built up, there are people everywhere you turn..... I also think there are far too many immigrants here now.
What can I do?

Emigrate, or move to Scotland.

England is esp London and the South East. Scotland is much less crowded away from Glasgow and Edinburgh.

What can you do? You could stop lying. Many parts of Cheshire are rural so you will not be surrounded by people. If this is an attempt at an oblique reference to the number of people who are from a non-white heritage you should know the facts. Over 97% of Cheshire's population is white. You may, of course, live somewhere like Warrington which is quite a large town; however, even there almost 93% of the population is white. May be you do not live in Cheshire and just say you like, say, people who live in Sale, which is really part of the Greater Manchester conurbation. That has a high population density. But, even there almost four-fifths of the population are white.

Yes!! There are too many foreigners in the country!!! They are mainly concentrated in the South East (London). However, there are parts of the UK that have no people, (The North West Highlands of Scotland).
Every other person that is interviewed on TV, who comes from London, appears to be a foreigner.
It is noticeable that Mr Kim Jong Un , (North Korea), does not have too many foreigners in his country. He must be doing something right!!!!!

The population of any given area isn't really the major factor - it's the population density that makes a place feel as though it's too desolate or too cramped or somewhere in between. The island of Great Britain is roughly 210,000 square kilometres/80,000 square miles.
There are about 65 million people living in England, Scotland, and Wales today. It's estimated that there are somewhere around 260 people per square kilometre in the UK (over 670 per square mile), but of course those figures only give us an average - they're not accurate from one place to another.
New Zealand is roughly the same size as the UK, slightly larger, and has a population of fewer than 5 million people, or somewhere around 7 percent that of the UK.
Some of the most densely populated places in the world can be found in Europe - notably The Netherlands, but there are quite a few others as well.
The plain and simple fact is that A) people in developed countries are having fewer children - the cost of living has risen, fewer people are engaged in agriculture, and there's no longer a need or a desire to have a big number of children, so the birth rates in developed countries are decreasing... B) but people are living longer - improvements to healthcare and medical innovations have led to longer lives, so that's reflected in census data... C) the rate of immigrants coming in to developed countries has skyrocketed, and many immigrants tend to have a greater number of children than native-born people do, which skews figures and affects demographics... D) there has been a steady shift in urban areas growing in population and the population in more rural areas declining, which obviously leads to more built-up areas becoming denser and more crowded.
Putting all of these things together, we can see that it's likely not going to change anytime soon. In fact, the numbers will rise much higher before any noticeable dip will be seen. It's only those developed countries that DON'T take in immigrants that have a falling population. In places like Korea and Japan, the birth rate is low, the life expectancy is high, but they don't have anything to offset the two because they don't accept 25,000 people from Central Asia, Eastern Europe, the Middle East, or North Africa annually the way Northern and Western European nations do.
If anything, 50 years from now, 100 years from now, the cities of Britain will be far more crowded than they are today, while many places in the countryside that have remained largely unspoiled will be developed to meet the demand for more housing. What can you do? There's nothing you can do. The die is cast.

I thought you lived in a 3rd floor council flat in Manchester? Greater Manchester, not Cheshire?
That's what you've been posting on here.

Cheshire? Clearly not. Cheshire's only a stone's throw from the sticks. Cestrians are practically bumpkins themselves.
