Mozammel Hossain told party activists at the Tories’ first mayoral hustings that he was “not a Brexiteer”.
Mr Hossain is one of the three contenders who made it onto the final shortlist to be the Tory candidate to take on Sadiq Khan in next May’s election,
Tell a Briton of 50 years ago that the two – likely – caindiates for Mayor of London would both generationally hail from the subcontinent.
That both the – Tory – PM and Home Sec did.
This is not to say that it’s good or bad, it’s to be entirely uninterested in that part of it.
Something just noted couple of days back. Between the 2001 and 2021 censuses, non-white (ie, not “White British” classification) grew by 15% of the population. That’s one hell of a change in population demographics. The entire white population of South Africa is only 7.7%.
Again, this is to be entirely neutral about good or bad. But it really is one hell of a change.
So, a thought. Is there anywhere else ever that has had this much demographic change as a result of immigration in such a short time? Absolutely no part of the Empire did in us going outwards – not in just a couple of decades it didn’t. Transport just wasn’t fast or bulk enough for that.
So, candidates for a faster change are?
