Is the UK really overpopulated?
If we take in the fact that over 46,000 people have recently died of Covoid-19, are we perhaps in need of an extra 46,000 people?

Most nations are overpopulated
which you can recognize by looking at the amount of deforestation and other sorts of loss of "wilderness acreage".
When a population gets so large
that it significantly changes the natural environment in which it resides
then we have overpopulation.
It's hard for me to imagine what non-overpopulated would look like. Probably: something like one person per 100 acres of land.
Comparing World population to land area, density is 137 per square mile.
UK: 710 per sq mi. (Wow, that's high!)
US: 87 per sq mi.
Note that desert, glacier, tundra and mountain significantly affect population density. (Nations with lots of those things typically have very low population densities - simply because the environment will not support larger populations).

They need about 46 million fewer idiots like you. WRONG FORUM. Fail.

A small number, compared with annual immigration/emigration figures.
