London becomes Wogistan

The BBC writes

Something quite remarkable happened in London in the first decade of the new millennium.

The number of white British people in the capital fell by 620,000 – equivalent to the entire population of Glasgow moving out.

The consequence, as revealed by the latest census, is that white Brits are now in a minority in London, making up just 45% of its residents.

So where have they gone to – and why did they leave?

Remarkably, they can’t even see the truth.  There is no “white flight” you see.  It’s just a desire for country living.   Yeah, I wish I was kidding.

The movement of the white British is often characterised as white flight – the indigenous population forced out of their neighbourhoods by foreign migrants. That may be part of the story, but I think the evidence suggests it is also about working class aspiration and economic success. …

It would appear that, in the first decade of the 21st Century, the dream of escaping to the country became a reality for tens of thousands of urban white Britons. But did they leave willingly or were they forced to move?

To find out, I have been to Barking and Dagenham, a London borough which has seen a phenomenal change in its cultural make-up over the past decade or so. In 2001, the census records that more than 80% of residents were white British. By 2011, it was statistically in the minority – just 49% of people in the area described themselves as white and British. …

A closer look at London reveals how many neighbourhoods in the outer boroughs have seen significant falls in the white British population – Newham, Brent, Haringey, Enfield, Ealing, Hounslow, Merton and Lewisham almost form a ring around the capital. Only the affluent boroughs of Richmond and Kingston along the river to the west prevent the completion of the … doughnut.

Blinded.

The UK is rotting from within, and it started in the big cities.

People want to live in the country alright.  Just like a lot of New Zealand-born white people don’t want to live in Auckland.
