Poverty and population – are they related? I think we should be told!

The great and the good bien pensants are forever preaching to us about how we should live our lives. Time and time again they lecture us from their moral high ground demanding that we hard-pressed, over-taxed workers should be handing over ever more of our money to help the Third World poor while our masters keep on hungrily pocketing ever larger amounts of our money for themselves.

But one thing our self-serving, arrogant, greedy betters never seem to mention is population. Or rather the possible link between overpopulation and poverty. But are poverty and population growth linked?

Here’s a list of the twenty poorest countries in the world (click to see more clearly)

poverty

(Oh look. Eighteen of them are in Africa)

And here’s a list of the twenty countries with the fastest growing populations

population growth

(Oh look. Fifteen of them are in Africa)

And here are the two lists put side by side

poor and population

Oh, look. Twelve countries (the ones marked in red) are in both lists.

Good heavens, most of the countries that are poorest are in Africa. Most of the countries with the fastest rising populations are in Africa. And twelve of the countries with the fastest growing populations are also in the twenty poorest countries in the world.

What could this be telling us? That there’s a link between poverty and overpopulation? What a surprise! Who would have thunk it? I need to sit down to get over my total astonishment.

Why don’t the great and the good ever mention these (possibly inconvenient) facts when extracting money from us to supposedly ‘help the poor’? Because it would be ‘raaacccciiiisssstttt’ to dare to suggest that people in poorer African countries could better their own conditions by having slightly fewer children?

And so David Cameron is proud to have increased the amount of money we borrow to give to these basket-case hell-holes in foreign aid from about £7.9bn a year to over £11bn a year – an increase of over £3.1bn a year – enough to pay the salaries of the 40,000 troops and 34,000 police who are being fired here in Britain to save money.

‘Tis surely an odd (politically-correct) world we live in.

(Oh and while we’re on the subject of poverty – why not help stamp out poverty here in Britain by buying a copy of my latest book DON’T BUY IT!)

    Intelligence is also a factor. Must be difficult for a country to thrive if most of the population have a sub 70 IQ.
