What are we studying here, elephants?

Actually, despite 28 types of KitKat, we’re not:

Birth rate will take years to recover from Covid baby bust
A V-shaped recovery from the plunge in births during the pandemic is ‘highly unlikely’, analysts warn

It still only takes 9 months from getting jiggy to arrival…..a sudden change in one direction of the birth rate can reverse just as quickly…..

  1. It took England 400 years to recover from the Black Death and they didnt even have transwomen to contend with.

    “Birth rate will take years to recover from Covid baby bust.”

    So MOAR immigration now! We need those third world losers!

  3. We rather want there to be a reasonably stable relationship before they start the 9 months. I suspect it’s that, the starting, formation and strengthening of relationships, that has been shafted by lockdown preventing people meet and socialising, that has caused this. That will take longer for the country to recover from.

  4. I don’t suppose constant doom-mongering about climate and covid and white guilt and pronouns and cultural misappropriation and guardian female columnists and ALL the crap we hear every day, I don’t suppose that puts people off?

  5. Rhoda,

    Its all good for evolution. The saps that do as they are told and swallow the propaganda don’t breed. Meanwhile the people who’ve been fucking in secret because why would you let a million to 1 disease stop you, are going to have the children.

  6. BoM4, the problem with letting evolution handle it is that we in the west have interfered so much in the natural order of things that survival traits are inverted. You will reproduce more if you let the state provide your money and housing and increase that supply should you have more kids. You also get no benefit from being in a stable economic relationship, in which case your money will be taken to give to the others.

    A trip to Swindon ASDA should provide examples.

  7. It’s the confidence with which morons make their predictions that always strikes me.

    After all, it turned out that epidemiological “analysts” couldn’t hit an elephant’s arse with a double bass.

    That is evolutionary. The system has been created and the chavs have adapted to it. Who is smarter and more successful? Someone who sits around playing X-Box, breeding and smoking weed on the Toothill estate, or some middle class girl who worked hard, went to Oxford to do a degree in English literature, left with a ton of student debt living in Camden writing articles for the Guardian complaining about not enough housing being built and eventually signing up for Cat of the Month club?

    It’s rats vs pandas. Everyone loves the panda, they’re cute, they’re the logo of the WWF, but they’re losers. They’re picky bastards about what they eat and who they screw. Most panda cubs are because we artificially inseminate them. Rats will eat any old garbage and breed regularly. Did the rat notice when we destroyed their habitat? Fuck no. They just tried to fit in.

    If you changed the incentives, like annihilating benefits, I suspect a lot of chavs would get jobs and work hard, but they’ve figured that’s a shit deal.

  9. Doesn’t it all depend on what the spike protein was engineered to do to the human reproductive system?

  10. Aren’t we constantly being told that overpopulation is part of the climate change problem, though funnily enough the obvious solution of reducing birth rates where they highest doesn’t seem up for discussion or that immigration into high carbon footprint economies like U.K. and US from low carbon footprint places exacerbates the impact.
    Though when an abortion clinic can be called a Reproductive Rights Centre it does make you wonder if there isn’t some agenda on western birth rates being played out.

  11. With Boris continuing to sabotage the economy as hard as he can go, couples will put off having children until they can afford it.
