Isn’t the German woman, who has just been tipped for an ill deserved EU position, thoughtful in having just seven children? No pressure on world resources there.

Another reason to leave the EU then, Woodburner? The unsustainability of the bureaucracy.

We don't have to stop having kids we just have to have fewer kids than 2.4 per couple and the human population will reduce. While I agree that there are a lot of people who shouldn't have kids it isn't necessary for all of us not to have them.


My comment was meant to be tongue in check rather than literal but yes I agree with what you say.
On the subject of population I had a friend on Facebook post this from the Hampton Institute

To be fair it was said the meme was that problems are caused by capitalism but myself and several others were troubled by the conclusion that removing it could allow us to have upto a 20Billion population.

I suppose if you have 7, your EU employer just adjusts your workload to suit, as legally required.
