Nearly four million immigrants swelled the population of England and Wales over just ten years, the results of the national census revealed yesterday. The figures show 7.5million people who were born abroad were living here last year – of whom more than half have arrived since 2001.
Census officials said they mean that more than 70 per cent of the record rise in the overall population over the past decade is produced by people who migrated into Britain.
It said 13 per cent of people in the country, 7.5million, were born outside Britain. Of these, 3.8million arrived after 2001, including a high proportion who came from Poland and Eastern Europe after Tony Blair’s government allowed free immigration when their countries joined the EU in 2004. The census report said: ‘This means that 71 per cent of the overall population growth in the last decade is accounted for by the non-UK resident population.’ he Migration Watch UK think-tank said yesterday: ‘This is the clear result of Labour’s mass immigration policy which brought nearly four million immigrants to England and Wales in ten years.

Do NOTE -- many of the recent immigrants are from Eastern Europe and the older (pre-71) are Irish, so it's not just South Asians...
London queers are more interested in the color of money.

depends if your relatives are English or not. The title includes Eastern Europeans as “non-’white British’”
Just like Los Angeles.
I have created a new game for londoners, it is called “spot the ninja”....

These pictures could have been taken in any NJ city...oh wait, there are white people in the picture. Scratch that.
Maybe it more accurately resembles the Meadowlands Flea Market by Giants Stadium...
Admitted deliberate but secret policy of the Labour Party during its years in power.
Remember when Britain was Great?
Before her elite ruling Quisling Traitors betrayed her, and destroyed her.
And it’s so funny to hear their kids speak with a British accent....
Filipinos :) lovely people. I’ve met them in various countries across the world and when I travelled with my cousin who’s a shippie — friendly, happy people, but don’t get on their bad side. I remember seeing those Filipino shippies practising their Filipino stick fighting — tough as nails...
