White Britons 'a minority by 2066' ( Racism Will Not Be Tolerated )

Quote
White British people will be a minority in their own country by 2066 if current immigration levels continue, a population expert has claimed.
Professor David Coleman, of Oxford University, said the demographic group would make up less than half the population in "little more" than 50 years.
He said the decline will be caused by record-breaking levels of immigration and the migration of thousands of British nationals abroad over the coming decades.

Some immigrants are white.

Frankly I think that is an alarmist and twisted report by a so called expert.
This gives a lot more information http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/immigration/8142176/White-Britons-to-become-minority-by-2066.... as the orginal article is available to subscribers only

The white British-born community (defined as English, Welsh, Scottish and Irish-born citizens) will fall to less than half of the overall population in just over 50 years.
This definition alone is twisted - as the definition excludes a lot of coloured or non white citizens borne in the UK and excludes all the white immigrants from Europe and the old Commonwealth.
Quote
Figures from the Office of National Statistics show that if immigration remains at a long-term rate of around 180,000 a year the proportion of the white British-born population will fall from 80 per cent to 59 per cent by 2051.
In that time the white immigrant population will have risen from four to 10 per cent and ethnic minority population from 16 to 31 per cent.

To my mind this could have been written by and for the BNP and one has to wonder about the motives.
