A quarter of all babies born in Britain are the children of immigrants

A record number of nearly 200,000 babies were born to immigrant mothers in Britain. The five countries from which the greatest numbers of foreign-born mothers came were Poland, Pakistan, India, Bangladesh and Nigeria. The increase in the proportion of births to non-British mothers living in Britain illustrates how the demographic make-up of Britain is changing.

I was in London this summer.

The first day I was there I don't know exactly how long I walked around in public before hearing anyone speaking English, but it was probably close to 2 hours. There was a lot of French, German and other Euro languages but the number of non-euro languages was incredible.

It's a shame really because England is such a nice place and the people are as well.

Visit while it's still somewhat English.
