THE HOUSING PANCAKE:

Britain has to build 2million new homes - just to cope with growing number of immigrants (Daily Mail, 14th January 2008)

Almost 2million new homes will have to be built just to cope with the immigrant influx, peers will be told tomorrow.

It means 263 houses must be constructed every day for almost 20 years – the equivalent of five cities the size of Birmingham during the next 18 years.

Four in ten of all new homes will go to new migrants, a report by Migrationwatch UK claims.


Given the housing shortages facing the Anglosphere, prices have barely begun their long run-up. Consider the incipient demand in the U.S. when either Congress passes an immigration bill or George Bush issues a blanket amnesty for "illegals."
