WHITE FLIGHT THANKS TO OPEN DOOR MIGRATION

White populations in towns and cities are dwindling at record levels and in extreme cases have halved in a decade, it was revealed today.

In Newham, east London, just 16 per cent of the population are white, compared to 33 per cent ten years ago.

Academic Ted Cantle, a Government adviser of community cohesion, says by the 2021 census the polarisation will be even greater.

The report says many towns and cities, such as Birmingham, Leicester, Slough, Luton, Bradford and London, have seen areas develop where the white British population is ‘increasingly dwindling’ as minorities increase.

Professor Cantle cites Blackburn as one of the most segregated towns in Britain whose Whalley Range area is now 95 per cent Asian and the local butcher admits he has never served a white person.

Mohammed Tabrez Noorji, who opened his butchers last year told The Guardian: ‘I do sometimes speak to the white people when they walk past but there is nothing for them to buy here.

‘It is not good that we all live separately but how can we fix this problem? Asian families like to live in the same area as each other so we can support one another, but then the white people move out.

‘It’s not that we deliberately choose to live separately – it is just what happens. We want to live in this area because we are close to the mosques and all our families are very close to each other.’

But retired taxi driver Ian Goodliffe who appeared on Panorama while working at a ‘white only’ taxi firm said: ‘There are certain areas where white people no longer go and the same for Asians. They lead very separate lives. There is an element of fear on both sides and then there is of course this awful racism. I hear it all the time.

‘It is sometimes a gang mentality and everyone wants to stick to their own. There are whole parts of Blackburn where a white person would not buy a house but then there is the same for the Asians.

‘There is a mutual distrust and the only way to change that is for people to mix, but we are at a total impasse and it is only going to get worse’.

Professor Cantle also said he met a Yorkshireman who said he was the first Asian to move into a street and within three years all the white families had gone.

‘Some of those families made no bones about it – they are moving out because ‘they’ are moving in’, he said.

NEWHAM: MOST DIVERSE BOROUGH IN THE UK

The London borough of Newham was officially formed in 1965 after the merger of East Ham and West Ham under the new Greater London region.

Traditionally it had a strong white working class population thanks to the Royal Group of Docks that were built between 1855 and 1921.

Named after Queen Victoria, Prince Albert and King George V, the docks became a core part of the local economy, even when they were damaged by German bombing raids during the Second World War.

But their decline started in the 1960s due to the increased use of container ships, and they eventually closing to commercial traffic only in 1981, causing widespread unemployment.

Many homes were destroyed in the area during the Blitz, leading to a huge development of tower blocks and an influx of immigrant workers to build them.

Now it is the most ethnically diverse borough in the UK, with white British making up just 16 per cent of the population in the 2011 census, dropping from 33.8 per cent 10 years earlier.

The 37.5 per cent drop was the largest of any local authority in England and Wales between the two censuses.

Newham was one of the six host boroughs for the 2012 London Olympic Games and was also home to West Ham United’s Upton Park until the club left for Stratford’s Olympic Stadium.

The research, published by Open Democracy, calls on the Government to do more to promote mixed communities, especially in light of the spike in hate crime reported since the Brexit referendum.

The study, conducted by integration experts Professor Ted Cantle and Professor Eric Kaufmann, shows that, while England as a whole is more ethnically mixed, white and minority groups are now more isolated from each other.

The report finds the polarisation is mainly in urban areas. It notes the pace of change is ‘striking’, with some areas seeing a decrease in the white population of more than 50 per cent between 1991 and 2011.

The report says many towns and cities, such as Birmingham, Leicester, Slough, Luton, Bradford and London, have seen areas develop where the white British population is ‘increasingly dwindling’ as minorities increase.

The study finds the ‘ trend towards isolation’ is at its greatest in smaller geographic areas, such as wards.

Prof Cantle, who wrote a report into community cohesion in the wake of several race riots in 2001, said: ‘The antipathy towards some communities may have been much less if we were more integrated and actually lived in mixed areas – all the evidence suggests that prejudice and intolerance is broken down by contact.

‘This research shows what is happening on a local level and that is that there is increasing polarisation between the white majority population and minorities across England, particularly in our urban areas. This has gone under the radar, but it is time this became a national priority because cohesion is at stake.

‘The focus of policy needs to shift, this is not just about minorities. Politicians and policy-makers need to encourage white British residents to remain in diverse areas; to choose, rather than avoid, diverse areas when they do re-locate, encouraging similar choices with respect to placing pupils in diverse schools; in other words to create a positive choice for mixed areas and a shared society.’

Cockneys are becoming a minority in east London, (pictured) which is the UK’s most multicultural borough, with 70,000 immigrants arriving over the past 15 years.

But White British ‘East Enders’ say immigration is killing off traditions that used to be commonplace in the area in the 1970s (pictured)

Labour’s Chuka Umunna, chairman of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Social Integration, said: ‘During a year in which our country has seemed more divided than at any point in modern history, there are few questions which require investigation more urgently than the matter of how well we are living together.

‘Equally, however – at a time in which our political debate has become yet more polarised and media headlines yet more fraught – there are few questions which it can seem harder to get to the bottom of.

‘It’s clear that, whilst the UK is becoming increasingly diverse, levels of integration are not keeping pace.

‘This has real implications for community cohesion – with social segregation having been shown to undermine trust between neighbours, to grow the fear of crime and bolster the prejudice which fuels the politics of recrimination and blame.’

The report states: ‘Where areas have become more mixed, minorities have generally become more isolated from the white British.

‘This is a function of the decline of the white British population in those towns and cities in absolute numbers and relative to the increase in minorities in the same areas.

‘This results in a growing isolation of the white majority from minorities in urban zones.

‘Segregation has been linked to prejudice and intolerance of the ‘other’ due to the lack of contact and interaction across social and cultural boundaries.’

The study comes as the Government is about to deliver a major review into integration, segregation and extremism.
