We're still empty.

As Billy Connolly famously once said: "Scotland is empty," at least in population terms. But according to the Registrar General, we just got a little less "emptier."

"The number of deaths during the second quarter of 2007 was the lowest ever recorded at that time of year—4% lower than last year—while the number of births was 1.6% higher than the previous year, and the highest at the time of year for a decade."

Gees, soon you won't be able to move without bumping into someone.
