Brian, your figures might be right, but they are mostly from the country that was once India. I have been visiting London since my sister first took me for a holiday in 1948. She was sent to work in London WW2. She has lived all her married life in London. Believe me, I’ve seen many sad changes. For instance in the early visiting my sisters friends in their council flats at Stockwell next to Battersea. So beautiful and green areas people used to sit and chat, then the first immigrants, arrived. In a very short time suddenly a dump, awake all night by music. They moved to Kent. By the mid 1980s where my sister lived in Pimlico changed from a pleasant area to a sink estate, well that’s what the newspapers called it when a young man was stabbed to death. Sadly my sister died, but did see the beginning of the change. Two of her friends moved to be near their daughters one in Essex one in Kent. The last time I was in the area was 1985. My daughter lives in Old Hanwell, which is pleasant, but I still worry. London white locals are a minority. That’s a fact.|
