Italian journalist and author, Giulio Meotti, Cultural Editor for Il Foglio, explains this phenomenon in an article: ‘Great Britain: Multiculturalism and Islam Turn It Upside-Down.’
RAiR Foundation “Leicester has become the poster city for multicultural Britain, a place where the stunning number and size of the minorities – the 55 mosques, 18 Hindu temples, nine Sikh gurudwaras, two synagogues, two Buddhist centres and one Jain centre – are seen not as a recipe for conflict or a millstone around the city’s neck, but a badge of honour,” was how, in 2013, the British liberal newspaper The Independent celebrated the transformation of Britain’s tenth-largest city.
Just a year ago, Leicester was celebrated by the Institute of Historical Research in London as the most multicultural city in the UK. “Here, everyone is a minority,” headlined The Guardian in 2010, rejoicing that “Leicester will soon become the first British city with a non-white majority”. Christianity had been replaced by Islam.
The highest proportion are found in the London boroughs of Newham (69.2%), Brent (65.4%) and Redbridge (65.2%). Outside London, the highest proportion of non-whites is in Slough (64.0%), followed by Leicester (59.1%), Luton (54.8%) and Birmingham (51.4%). The most popular name among those born in England in 2022 is Mohammed.
“Leicester to be first city where white people are minority,” announced The Independent in 2007. Some understood that it would not end well. “Plural cities, opportunities or time bomb?” the Commission for Racial Equality headlined a conference seminar about Leicester. What happened? Leicester became Islamized fast. In 2001, the Muslim population was 11%. By 2017, it made up 20%. Among children, Islam is dominant.
Data from the Office for National Statistics recently revealed that, in a major change since 1991, when ethnic minorities made up just over a quarter of the city, 59.1% of Leicester’s population comes from ethnic minorities. Minorities also make up more than half the population in Luton (54.8%) and Birmingham (51.4%), the second-largest city in the UK, where, 20 years ago, 70% of the population was native English. Leicester, Luton and Birmingham are among 14 large areas of England where people who identify as “white” now make up the minority, The Independent noted.
Fewer than half the people in England and Wales are now Christian, the recent census revealed, with atheism and Islam gaining ground. For the first time since the 7th century AD, England is no longer majority-Christian. That was 1,300 years ago, when the islands were converted from paganism to Christianity. In 2011, in the previous census, Christians numbered 59% of the population. Now, they number 46%.
Islam has quickly advanced on the religious scene. In the census of 2011, there were 2.7 million Muslims (4.9% of the population). In the 2021 census, there were 3.9 million Muslims (6.5%): an increase of 44% in just 10 years.
Christianity is becoming a religion of the past; Islam appears that of the future. In 2015, the Spectator featured on its cover “The Last Christian”, in which an elderly lady was the only worshipper in a cathedral. The former Archbishop of Canterbury, Lord Carey, warned that Christianity “is a generation away from extinction”.
Here is the situation today in major British cities and boroughs. The total population is listed on the left, with the Islamic percentage in parentheses:
- Birmingham, population 1,149,000: (29.9%)
- Leeds, 792,000: (7.8%)
- Sheffield: 584,000: (10.3%)
- Bradford: 536,000 (30.5%)

Soon, half of Birmingham’s population will also be Muslim. “There were 301,000 Muslims in Birmingham in 2018, making up 27% of the local population,” wrote the Birmingham Mail in 2019. “The number of Muslims has risen by 21% from 249,000 in 2011.” The same newspaper noted that Muslim children in the city now outnumber Christian ones.
“In the working-class district of Small Heath, in the eastern part of the city, 95 per cent of the population is Muslim,” Le Figaro reported in 2017 about Birmingham.
An American writer for the Wall Street Journal, Andy Ngo, recounted a visit to Luton, population 225,000 and approximately 32% Muslim:
“At the Central Mosque, I met a friendly group of Punjabi-speaking young men. ‘You’ve come to see Luton?’ one struggled to ask me in English. The young men asked me to follow them through the town center.
“Within minutes, we walked by three other mosques, which were vibrant and filled with young men coming and going. We passed a church, which was closed and decrepit, with a window that had been vandalized with eggs…. All the businesses had a religious flair: The eateries were halal, the fitness center was sex-segregated, and the boutiques displayed ‘modest’ outfits on mannequins. Pakistani flags flew high and proud. I never saw a Union Jack.
“The men finally led me to a discreet building that housed a small Islamic center. They spoke privately to its imam. I was led upstairs to see him. The imam asked me if I was prepared to convert.”
No one knows what Britain will be like in 30 years. We might, however, be concerned about a scenario in which large parts of the UK and Europe could resemble Pakistan. Brexit or not, that would be the end of Britain as we know it.
US infidel says
screw em . Brits must love living in misery .they keep voting libtards in power to rule over them ,damm bunch of serfs
Doug Towler says
It is not only the United Kingdom but, most of Western Europe that is toppling under the weight of Radical Islam… When will they WAKE UP ???
circa 2050, White Brits can always migrate to Elon Musk’s Martian Space colony. Even a blind person knows he’s an Anglophile and definitely anti-Muslim.
It’s not that bad
Only a new Crusades will reverse this.
Ricardo V says
A little patriotism and a lot of violence might help to find the balls to start rolling.
Ramez Fekry says
There are, ipso facto, around 120 million right-wing voters in the West and Eastern Europe.
Said Islamocritical pure-blooded White and Whitish Christian peoples would do well to follow in the footsteps of their gallant ancestors as well as those of Baruch Goldstein, Alexandre Bissonnette, and Brenton Tarrant en masse if they were to exist beyond 2029 C.E. as free peoples, not Dhimmis!
Abu bakour-ismail says
Always knew ,this was less about Christians and more about white superamascist Neo Nazis. Ideology.
The religion of western whites is not Christianity but Nazism, their god is the ghost of Hitler
The term pure blood you described is what Hitler wanted and he went on mass murdering rampage against 12 million people who he claimed didnt have
Sorry this won’t happen again, we will genocide Nazis and people like you if you overstep
Conversion to Islam removes these criminal thoughts you posses.
Abu: Oh, this is rich! “Conversion to Islam removes these criminal thoughts you posses.”
You are aware that Hitler and the Islam representatives got along like best friends, no?
I’d watch my mouth if I were you on that one.
Daniel Erbstoesser says
Thank you and i agree 100%. Yes hitler was a islam fan and today his party the international socialists are islam fans too see palastina.
Charles Black says
Or maybe Israel will remove your kind from this Earth. Have you considered that?
Mohammad Jinnah says
The Tipping point is coming soon get ready to face the wrath.
It’s going to be absolutely Brutal.
Recently Qatar foundation pledged to build 200 mosques by 2030 years in UK.
The plan is coming along nicely.
LGBT, Tranny, Nazi, Catholic Agenda will be banned.
Don’t use different screen names to pretend you are several people.
I wonder why aren’t there any other Muslim posters on the site who can write somewhat like me.
We Muslims aren’t all idiots and morons. But if you go by the Internet, it’s embarrassing to say the least.
I had to ban the jerk. He came back and wrote some nasty stuff to people.
Daniel Erbstoesser says
Thanks Bonni for doing that then we have enough of them allover and here we need a break from things like this. send him my adress and ask him if he wants to come and throw me off a roof. im hetero but i would really like to see if he can fill his words with action.
It’s a daunting, depressing, and angering story isn’t it?
Try it from my perspective. 30+ years serving HM forces, sent to every muslim sh*thole around the world to fight and kill our ‘enemies’ (every ‘war’ we or the US has officially been involved in, and a few that we definitely weren’t there, honest), with less than 2 years total (in penny packets. I took my leave in the US, Canada and Nordic countries) back in Britain in that period. Only to return a couple of years ago to find my country has been given away to … the very savages I was fighting all those years. (Officially I’m not just a second-class citizen now, I’m at the end of the line for every help and service available – that I and mine have paid for for decades, well behind the tribalists).
But … the graphs, msm stories and statistics don’t tell the whole story.
That same census shows my small local ‘city’ (pop. circa 150,000) has … 875 muslims (and they wont be here long before moving, as the rest before them, to Manchester, London or Leicester). People here ‘watch’ them, we’re all quite well aware of what their preferred behaviour is like. One or two ‘discussions’ with male muslims (purely coincidentally) hanging around outside clubs and pubs (definitely not looking for young drunk white girls) and … unaccountably they, and their families, all move away. Go figure. (In fact we have a greater problem with the numbers of Portuguese and Polish here to live off benefits and freebies like parasites. Some work 1in 100 Polish, 1 in 1000 Portuguese, but all are on benefits and live in subsidised housing)
Yes Britain, like the rest of Europe, has a muslim problem, but they are concentrated, confined in ‘ghettos’ (for, from their own perspective, their safety). The cited cities ‘do’ have massive muslim populations, because … they aren’t anywhere else. They ‘can’ manipulate and control those areas, and with the help of complaint (bought and paid for) politicians attempt the same nationally, but the effects are muted, away from the ‘ghettos’, by being simply ignored.
That the government (central, regional and local), politicians, media and police are all, not just supporters but, on the enemies side is long recognised, so they are ‘avoided’ in ‘dealing with’ problems. It hasn’t (quite, or as far as I am aware) reached S.S.S. (the middle S is a digging implement in case you are unaware) actions, but it’s almost there.
Britain, I’d suggest, was possibly the most open, accepting and welcoming (and despite msm lies, the least racist) country before all this. Now? It has become, they made us, more ‘tribal’ and … that really wont bode well for those (conveniently concentrated, easily identified) ‘minorities’ (‘and’ their fifth column supporters).
Will it happen? I don’t know, but the recent Albanian ‘issue’ has caused a level of discussion/anger, amongst normal, average people (not ‘extremists’ or ‘activists’), the like of which I’ve never heard before. Even the corrupt politicians are aware, witness the pretence of actions against immigration, but … everyone knows, and crucially says, it’s too little, too late.
I’ve seen (way too much) combat (you really don’t want my scars and collection of ballistic body implants, let alone my nightmares) but … the consensus ‘seems’ to be growing that it isn’t just necessary, but inevitable. May God forgive us. (and the other parasitic nationalities will not be spared, ‘that’ I guarantee you).
Very sad hearing about how awful it is there, ESPECIALLY for veterans like yourself. We’re heading in the same direction too, unfortunately. And if history tells us anything, not much will be done in the near future. After all, it took Spain 700 years to get rid of its Muslim problem, and 700 years later they are repeating the same behavior that led to the desperate need for the Crusades.☹️
Daniel Erbstoesser says
I agree and feel with you and i want to thank you for the offer you made with mind and body. That was not for nothing. I too see the outcome of this and yes there will be many that perish but there will be many that fight and live and for all our nations and our cultur will survive this attack. Keep your head up and when the hour of power comes please be with us and fight one last time. We the few have many people like you, people that were used for lies and treachery but we can all get our satisfaction at the end.
The Muslim is convinced Britain and Ireland are neutralised and de-balled.
Daniel Erbstoesser says
Answer YES and that is not only in britain so but in all of europe and NO there will be no salvation this time then they are in our countries and we cannot deport them. Then comes the 4 wives and 20 children part and then you are a minority in your own country. That what i wrote here has happened and when a country goes ape because the school children are between 80% and 100% invader and the own children dont count. Wich country is it?…its Germany and the import goes on and on and soon comes the hour of power.
