Already covered in previous posts.

Small scale organic farming can produce an order of magnitude more food denisty than our large monocultural intensive farms, with significantly less chemical use, without destroying the soil and bringing multiple environmental benefits - at one cost (or benefit?): uplift in manual labour.

We can already do it. But vested interests stop us.


We don't make it as a species.
So you want more than 64 millions ppl here? And more building because we have only developed 6% of the land as @Tom pointed out?

I don't think there's much you can do about it; our birthrates are slowing, sure, but we're still gonna need a mahussive migrant workforce to pay for boomer pensions, you boomers.

I was talking exclusively about the viability of the UK in a farming context.

I couldn't care less about the rest of it.

I'm willing to bet the biggest reason people think the UK is overcrowded is traffic on the roads. Because at night, when most people are in bed and the roads are quiet, it doesn't seem at all overcrowded to me.

I rode 120 odd miles on Saturday and for about half that ride, I encountered hardly anyone.

Mine is that I went to Llyn Geirionydd today and it was so overcrowded, despite it being a little-known-about hidden away part of Snowdonia with a long single track road to get to it there must have been at least a hundred cars, some parked incredibly dangerously down the road as the car park was massively beyond capacity, and a packed packed lake.

Serves me right for living in a holiday destination? Maybe. The UK is only 49th on the list of most densely populated countries - but the fact is there are too many people here.

But that's because there are far too many people in the world.

Too many people full stop. The uk being part of it.

we cant have infinite growth in population or gdp.

For somebody who desperately wanted to be out of the public eye he spends an awful lot of time trying to force himself back into the public eye.

I'm no royalist but you can demand privacy while telling people what you want them to know. I mean, I tell people I'm off to the toilet, but I don't return to discuss the consistency or size of my turds.

Never found Alan Partridge funny really. Very cringeworthy though
Alan Partridge was a weird one for me. I found the shows themselves terminally unfunny, but found other people quoting them hilarious?

Oh yeah, and further to my rant on the Annoying Things thread a couple of months ago, we've just had an offer accepted on a house!!!! :D

1930's Semi that's been recently refurbished and has a loft conversion.

Oh, and it has a bar in the back garden, along with a man shed. Winning.

Of all the bad opinions on this forum...
He's not the only one to think that. I have my own that always seem to surprise people:

The Royle Family - could never see the appeal, I never once laughed.

Seinfeld - hated it. terribly unfunny.

It's a Wonderful Life - never understood what's so wonderful about that film.

Shawshank Redemption - it's okay but the best film ever? seriously?!

Agreed with all expect the Royle Family, which I love. It's funny, my Dad and I love all the same comedies, and the Royle Family is the only one we don't agree on.

Seinfeld is awful.

Agreed on Shawshank - it's good, but can hardly be called the best film ever considering Die Hard exists.

Seinfeld - thought it was amusing but not laugh out loud funny if that makes sense.

Never seen It's a Wonderful Life, and only limited amounts of Royle Family.

Mine would be that Parks and Recreation is a far better US version of The Office than the US version of The Office was.
