Migration is ruining the sovereignty of England
80% OF BABIES BORN IN PARTS OF LONDON HAVE FOREIGN PARENTS
Warning from Euro MP Gerard Batten

THE full impact of uncontrolled migration into the UK was laid bare yesterday by shock figures showing that four in every five babies born in some parts of London have foreign parents.
Across the capital two-thirds of the babies born in 2010 had a migrant mother or father. But in Newham the number of births to at least one non-British parent soared to an astonishing 84 per cent.
In only six of 32 London boroughs was the figure below 50 per cent.
The report comes on top of official figures showing the number of babies born to foreign mothers in 2010 hit a record high. The Office of National Statistics said migrant mothers accounted for more than one in four births.
Campaigners pointed to the new figures to show how mass migration is changing the face of British society and placing an intolerable strain on public services.
Sir Andrew Green of campaign group MigrationWatch said: “These extraordinary figures illustrate the huge and rapid change that is taking place in our capital city.
These extraordinary figures illustrate the huge and rapid change that is taking place in our capital city.
“They illustrate the way in which London is being changed beyond recognition and on a scale and at a speed that makes successful integration so much more difficult.
“It is a stark reminder to the Government to stick to their promise to get net migration down to the tens of thousands by the end of this Parliament.”
Euro MP Gerard Batten, home affairs spokesman for Ukip, said: “What these figures prove is that the massive growth in population can be shown to be due to migration. The population of Britain is changing rapidly and that is not because of individual decisions made by Britons to marry but because of deliberately engineered mass migration.
“This kind of growth is simply unsustainable.”
The statistics, revealed in response to a Parliamentary question from Tory MP Nicholas Soames, showed that in 2010 there were around 135,000 babies born across London of which 86,111 – or 64 per cent – had one or more migrant parents.
In Newham, east London, 84.1 per cent of the borough’s 5,266 births were to foreign parents. Most are from Pakistan, Poland and India.
Westminster had a non-British birth rate of 81.2 per cent while, in the borough of Kensington and Chelsea it was 79.1 per cent.
Areas with the lowest non-British parentage were Havering at 24 per cent and Bexley and Bromley, each with 33 per cent.
The ONS has suggested that the baby boom is partly down to immigrant mothers with “above average fertility rates”.
The result is that Britain’s population is now close to 62 million, with numbers rising by more than 1,000 a day. Experts predict the population will hit 70 million within 20 years.
Whitehall acknowledges that 100,000 new homes will be needed each year for the next 25 years to cope with results of immigration.
Earlier this week, the Daily Express revealed how old warehouses may have to be turned into classrooms for thousands of children as immigration and the accompanying jump in birth rate pushes the demand for primary school places ever higher.
