London Capital Of The World - But Not Britain

As a sign of the times, and perhaps signifying why London is like a foreign country to most of us: As of the 2011 Census, 36.7% of London's population was foreign born. This figure excludes the 'ethnic minority' populations who were born in UK but who live in London.

  • With 2,998,264 residents born abroad, London has the highest foreign-born population of any city in the world.

  • As of the 2011 Census, the total Asian population of London stood at 1,511,546. This is a rise of 60% from the 2001 Census, when the population stood at 947,425. Outer London has a greater Asian population than Inner London. 

  • London as a city is home to the single largest number of people of Bangladeshi origin outside of Bangladesh, with close to 200,000 individuals being of full Bangladeshi origin in 2007. Around 7% of London's population is of Indian origin

  • As of the 2011 Census, the total Black population of London stood at 1,088,640. This is a rise of 39% from the 2001 Census, when the population stood at 781,751. Peckham (also known as Little Lagos and Yoruba town) is home to one of the largest overseas Nigerian communities in the world; 40% of Peckham is Black African.

This has all happened in my lifetime, but not once have I been asked about it ...... and it has lead to White European Britons being invisible in many parts of London's inner city areas.
