    Default White Flight in London. BBC report.

    British white's are now a minority in London after a dramatic decrease recorded in the last 10 years.
    A decrease, since the Millenium, of 620'000 whites (the population of Glasgow) from London.
    They now represent 45% of the population.
    BBC asks the daring question in the article but singularly fails to dare answer it.
    BBC News - Why have the white British left London?
    My question is this.
    Could this happen in Dublin.
    Would you raise a family in an area with a large ethnic/immigrant community?

    I say if there was an influx of immigrants to Dublin, you'd not notice because you would be spending so much time froathing at the mouth here.
    Boycott the "Irish" Sun rag.

    So you read the report in 2 minutes?
    Is the BBC frothing simply by pointing out some stats?

    Here we go again.

    At least you have the honesty to admit it's a skin colour issue for you.

    Not character, honesty, hard working, friendly or neighbourly people.

    Just non-whites, thats what you object to.

    Whites are a minority? Don't think so. White British may be a minority now but there are lots of white non-British including Irish. The census forms now include a box to tick for white Irish.

    What about you Dubs taking over Kildare? So my Lily white mate says.

    Actually, the BBC raised the issue of skin colour.
    My partner is foreign and non-white.
    Can we have a discussion about major demographic cultural changes without using the Race card?
    For the record I'm not anti-immigrant but pro immigration control.

    London has been a city of immigrants for centuries, a lot of those 'whites' would be 2nd or 3rd generation something or other. the newer immigrants will be moving out to the country if thats the fashion its the next wave.

    Didn't they? They had a decent stab at it, in my opinion. The outer boroughs have seen the reductions mostly, and they offer a couple of possible reasons. White British seeing their tearooms replaced with chicken takeaways is one. Another is that they largely benefitted from the council home sales and redundancy payments from traditional large employers closing up.
