London’s population has been especially enlarged by immigrants. Three million foreign-born people now live in the capital.
Asians (India/Pakistan/Bangladeshi) comprise 18%. Black Londoners – including Africans, black Britons and those from the Caribbean – make up 13 per cent.
Sir Andrew Green of MigrationWatch thinks that the BBC
should have addressed such a serious issue less trivially
Sir Andrew Green, chairman of the MigrationWatch think-tank, said: ‘The BBC make a very serious mistake in addressing an issue of such importance to the British public in such a trivial and superficial manner.
‘It’s surely obvious that the main reason for white flight is because people are not willing to live in an environment which has changed beyond recognition and against their own wishes.’
Five London boroughs saw the proportion of white Britons fall by more than a quarter. The largest decline was in Newham, East London, where the decrease was 37.5 per cent.
