Hmmmm, here's a radical idea, but what about the more simple cause that there are more children than there were before?
The birth rate hit an all-time low around 2001-02, since when it has increased sharply. All those little kids are *gasp* having to start school! Throw in massive Eastern European migration (far exceeding expectation) to the UK with even more babies being born during the same period and errrr.... well it's not rocket science.
One can of course be on another planet thinking the Government have made state schools so fantastically brilliant all the rich folks want to send their kids there However, those of us on planet Earth can clearly spot a volume problem caused by the wonders of sexual intercourse without contraception.
