Two thirds of the new homes created in Britain since 1997 have a foreign–born head of the household, according to a new survey.
Figures based on a national survey showed that out of 2.7 million households created in the country over the period, nearly 1.8 million had a senior figure who was born outside the UK.Hmmm. What happened in 1997, I wonder?
The report was based on data from the Labour Force Survey, compiled by the Office for National Statistics, which showed that in 1997 there were just under 24 million households with birthplace data available.
Of those, 1.98 million were headed by a foreign-born person. In data from 2014 the number of households had risen to 26.5 million and the number foreign-born to 3.73 million.*snaps fingers* Oh! That’s right! Labour decided to import themselves a whole new electorate!
