Half of All Londoners Will Be Foreign-Born by 2031

Martin Robinson, Daily Mail, January 26, 2015

The number of foreign-born people living in London will outnumber native Britons by 2031, it was revealed today.

The immigrant population of the capital will reach at least five million in 16 years–having more than doubled from one million in 1971 to three million in 2011, when the last census was carried out.

New research has found the rise of non-British born Londoners will take the city’s total population to more than 10 million in 2031 and 11 million in 2041–compared with the 8.6 million living there today.

But while the city’s immigrant population will continue to rise sharply in the coming decades, the number of British-born people will continue to slowly decline.

In 1971 this figure was at more than six million but this is likely to sink below five million in the coming decades.

Immigration groups have said that the situation will be ‘totally unacceptable’ to many voters while political parties say it will but put even more pressure on public services.

Vice chairman of MigrationWatch UK Alp Mehmet said: ‘The public understand the enormous effect that the present rate of immigration is having on many of our cities and especially on London.

‘On current trends, the UK-born will be in a minority in their own capital within 20 years, despite strong public opposition to mass immigration.

‘It is time that the political class woke up to the implications for the future of our society before they find their credibility in shreds.’

Research by The Times has revealed the likely change in London’s population by 2031 and used previous studies.

According to the national census from 2011 the capital’s population was 8.2 million, up from 7.5 million in 1971.

Of the three million foreign-born residents 40 per cent were from Europe, 30 per cent from the Middle East and Asia, 20 per cent from Africa and 10 per cent from America or the Caribbean.

Since 1951 the number of Londoners from Africa has rocketed from 90,000 to 620,000, with people from Nigeria making up 100,000 of those.

In the same period those originally from Asia and the Middle East went from 180,000 to 970,000–with people originally from India making up 155,000 of those.

The 2011 census also revealed other social changes in London, including that white British people became a minority in London for the first time.

Just 3.7 million Londoners described their ethnicity as ‘White British’ in 2011–down from 4.3 million in 2001, and making up 44.9 per cent of the city’s population.

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.

In Barking and Dagenham, on the East London/Essex border, 80 per cent of residents were white British in 2001 but by 2011 the proportion was 49 per cent.

    Not all the UK-born are of English, Scots, Welsh or Irish ancestry. Ukip MP Carswell thinks Britain is great because it depends increasingly on foreign imports, foreign immigrants and foreign money. The workshop of the world in 1815 is its refuse dump in 2015.

    • Bossman

      With so many young Brits who are gay, they definitely need foreigners to keep the population from declining.

      • IstvanIN

        Where do you come up with this nonsense?

        • Sick of it

          Possibly from some of the people who post here.

        • Americaandthewestshouldbewhite

          Bossman is just a silly man. Ignore him and he will go away. I bet he is a semite.

      • bilderbuster

        And you support the Pakistankis raping and impregnating little English girls because they’re saving the the English from the homosexuals among them right?

      • David Ashton

        The percentage of homosexuals is quite small, albeit comparatively well-off and influential. The problem is the replacement level of white parents. England certainly has no need whatever to import African, Arabian or south Asian birth-rates.

        Most white liberal males are beta males; they are gay or could pass as such. They are staunchly anti-white and firmly support liberal programs such as amnesty, affirmative action, and muslim immigration. On the occasion I encounter them, I tell them that these groups don’t think too much of gays, especially white ones. There is the usual hissy fit, but they don’t seem to have too much knowledge of the real world. For example, there is a Mexican gay guy who works at the local restaurant. He lives near downtown LA. He reports having rocks and bottles thrown at him (by other Mexicans), as he tries to enter his apartment there. I imagine if he were white, the attacks would be even more common. In your opinion, what do most Hispanic males think of white liberal beta males?

  • DNA Explains It All

    I thought London was England’s capital.

    • haroldcrews

      I was about to ask about that myself. London has a capital?

  • Mary

    I would love to visit London while it’s still remotely an English city, but it sounds like it may already be too late for that. It seems to be heading toward the status of being a microcosm of British colonies, minus the White Brits.

    • SentryattheGate

      My daughter was in London recently, as was someone else I know; they were shocked (even with shocked facial expressions while describing it)! Especially with all the berkas walking around! I wonder how many of these foreigners are on the dole/parasites feeding off the host?

      • Magician

        And there are also a lot of muslim womein Vienne Austria….

        • Sick of it

          I’ve seen far too many in Dallas, TX…

          • bilderbuster

            Let them know they’re unwanted.

      • rightrightright

        Nationally, 50% of Moslem males and 75% of Moslem females are not in legal employment. They live free in social housing and suck on the taxpayers’ teat.

        • SentryattheGate

          What a mad, mad, mad world! Truth IS stranger than fiction!

      I was there in 1990 doing graduate work at a university outside of London and it was scary then. Not just the number of foreigners but the political climate. On a campus of 10,000, most students were either Labour (center left), socialist or communist. Conservatives? Maybe about 30 lads on the rugby team who you could always find in one of the campus pubs. I’m pretty sure 1990 was the last year Margaret Thatcher was in power.

      • Hammerheart

        Did you know the US government sent three representatives to mourn the passing of St. Swisher but snubbed Thatcher at her own funeral?

    • David Ashton

      Parks, museums and theaters.

  • Dave West

    I would invite all these libtard Muslim-apologists to visit these “friendly and peaceful” majority Arab and black ghettos in London. They should jump at the opportunity in order to expose the “racist” conservative “myth” of the no-go zones.

  • unless the brits wake up to the fact that this is a war being waged on working class whites using third worlders as Weapons of Mass Economic Destruction.

  • JohnEngelman

    This is not inevitable. All Britians need to do is change immigration laws.

    • LexiconD1

      And, cut of there very extensive welfare benefits. You think we’re bad, the UK is insane when it comes to their give a ways.

    • jonmayon

      The chosen elite won’t let them, Cameron & company that is.

      • JohnEngelman

        On an issue where the elite agree, 60% of the electorate has to strongly disagree. That is still possible.

    • LHathaway

      This is what other ‘white’ countries need to do. It’s debatable, in the UK it may already be too late for Whites to maintain a majority. In two or three hundred years Whites could potentially only be a small minority in UK. If white men start having children with women of color there, and white women stop having children with men of color (likely the opposite of what has been happening there), and the non-white exclusive birthrate remains below replacement level, and non-white immigration is halted, perhaps whites might have a future there. This would have to take place for a number of decades, perhaps. The other option would be deportations combined with an end to non-white immigration. Unless one or the other of these occur there’s a good chance whites have no future there, and it is, in a sense, too late already.

      • stewball

        And you’ll have sharia laws m

  • dd121

    What a shame for such a once great nation.

  • pcmustgo

    And some stupid French man I met here in NYC said, “well, they/we deserve it because of coloninialization”… f- traitor whites!

    • Hammerheart

      These are the people I really only despise. You can’t blame a negro for being a negro as much as you can blame a scorpion for being a scorpion. You can and should castigate white liberals and banksters with extreme prejudice.

  • TruthBeTold

    The number of foreign-born people living in London will outnumber native Britons by 2031 and David Cameron announced today that he was disappointed and didn’t believe that was soon enough.

  • Magician

    Another awesome news for anti-whites around the world who want whites to become extinct as quickly as possible, is that white UK women are determined to have black husbands and give births to black babies…

    Whenever I read that a white American woman became a victim of a black male crime, the victim is not relevant to the criminal in any way ( Eve Carson )

    Wheneve I read a white UK woman became a victim of a black male crime, she is often the criminal’s own lover ( Katie Piper who worked as a model until her boyfriend threw acid on her face and permanently ended her career as a model )

    Look at this blond UK mother! She gave births to eight mulatto kids, and then she is disappointed that it is now biologically impossible to give any more births, also admits it is very easy to abuse the benefits system in UK, and says seven of her kids have a personal tablet.

    • Hammerheart

      I’m glad this woman can afford seven tablets to my one.

      • John Smith

        UK taxpayers can.

    • LHathaway

      hehe, I see that too. A lot of white women who stay with their colored man have large numbers of children. Maybe that’s just what I’ve ran into and this isn’t a general pattern at all, but I’ve noticed it too.

      • NoMosqueHere

        Amazing how none of them look like her.

    • WoodyBBad

      I, for one, am glad her uterus gave out. Why is daddy not in the picture, I wonder?

  • NoMosqueHere

    I was hoping JT would run a story about the Union Jack being lowered to half staff after Saudi Arabia’s terrorist king died last week.

    The Brits sold out to the Saudi muslims a long time ago. Short of a revolution in GB, it seems over and done.

  • KenelmDigby

    It’s all a massive under estimate.
    It’s far far worse than that even now.

  • LHathaway

    The revolution will begin in the capital. But it looks like it will be the wrong revolution.

  • Ringo Lennon

    Of the three million foreign-born residents 40 per cent were from Europe.

    What kind of Europeans? Blue-eyed Poles?

    • The Dude

      They’re mostly Central and Eastern Europeans, yes.

      • corvinus

        True, Africa’s population is exploding, so we can expect immigration from there to increase dramatically. Barring a nationalist revival, France and Britain will be like Brazil by the end of the century, guaranteed.

    • LHathaway

      Or immigrants of color moving from one european country to a more hospitable one? Which brings up the notion . . . if whites (who are the vast majority) can’t make the decision to keep non-whites out (admittedly in self interest) will people of color continue to be so kind when they are the majority? Are non-white nations being over run by whites? When whites did do that it was called ‘evil colonialism’. How do they know . . . once the country becomes majority Muslim, for instance, what is stopping the majority from adopting policies favoring the importation of specifically even more Muslims?

      Perhaps we will reach a prepatory phase, in our own land, one where Hispanics and Blacks both vote to increase immigration of Hispanics and Blacks, respectively?

  • The Dude

    Congratulations, Londoners, you have been successfully conquered.

  • John Smith

    Ever go to the BBC? They’ve had articles alluding to this, usually referring to “racist” anti-immigrant sentiment among native Britons. The “comments” section is heavily censored as readers write what lefty “bollocks” the articles are.

  • John Smith

    But they can probably adapt in a generation or two, unlike some groups. Huguenots emigrated to many countries, like Germany, Britain, the US, South Africa, and assimilated nicely. It won’t happen with Pakis or Africans.

  • Realist.44

    Damn, England, you gave your country away. Well, we’re doing it too in the U.S. Multiculturalism=the end of a superior Euro culture.

  • Americaandthewestshouldbewhite

    Hopefully Londeners have a anti immigrant march like they did in Germany.

  • LexiconD1

    Not just welfare, but squatters rights, and changing identities for CRIMINALS coming out of prisons or jails, paying off victims of crime, just to name a few.

    The UK is nuts.

  • Americaandthewestshouldbewhite

    The royal family is a joke. In the good old days the kings or the queens would have deported these third worlders that are causing trouble there. Now they just go to functions, shake hands, distribute awards and fly on foreign tours. They are just as national monuments ratehr than actual ruling monarchs. They should never have let the semites into the UK because they are the ones that cause the DIE-versity agenda to take hold. Take a look at semites like Lady Gavron who said in 2000 that the royal family is too white and that Prince Charles should have married a negress and also look at David and Ed Milliband that push for multiculturalism in the UK.

  • LexiconD1

    Change benefits to welfare, and the EXACT same could be said of the United States.

  • ricpic

    The level of insanity beggars belief. Never has a race destroyed itself by importing enemy races before. I suppose Rome comes close but even toward the end Rome was still majority Roman. Rome was invaded and sacked but it didn’t invite invasion.
