    Errm is 44% a minority when it's the largest single group?

    If memory serves, The Sun deliberately uses a simplified vocabulary so that people with poor reading skills can get along with it. This means all the people failed by the schools and people with English as a second (or third, or fourth) language can pick it up and understand it better than a lot of the other papers. Foreigners coming over to work are also more likely to read what their colleagues are reading to fit in and to be on the same metaphorical page as their peers.

    What we really need is a similar poor-reader-friendly stance from a paper that isn't a complete piece of shit, but that's unlikely to happen, so instead perhaps we should try harder at teaching people from disadvantaged backgrounds to read better. A shocking number of people can't read well, we really ought to be more worried about it than we are.

    They could merge and launch a hostile takeover. We need to get our share to 51% urgently.

    Or we could wait until this generation has children, all of whom will be British subjects. That might get the numbers back up.

    Honestly I've never understood why this isn't something to be pleased about. I can see the knee jerk defensive our-way-of-life-is-disappearing culturally defensive fearful angle, but that's so far out of whack it's like having a go at a spider in your bath for taking over your right to have a shower.
    So you're saying you see foreigners as insects?
    Yes I'm aware a spider isn't an insect so shut your fucking stink hole
    Nup, nice try ;) I find the paranoia of bigots as ridiculous as competing for bathroom space with a spider.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    It does indeed. It's language level is that of a 12 year old.


    Not a joke.

    RE the stats... that British percentage will go up when the immigrants start having babies and, they get passports. I'm the result of a filthy immigrant couple and am classified as British - white to boot. Then the xenophobes can shut the fuck up.

    It's every sentence beginning with the word "But" that winds me up when I read The Sun. That's why I just look at the pictures now.

    I really don't give a flying fuck what patch of dirt people were born on - it's not like any of us had a choice. How you behave is what matters.

    Factually? I know the fucktards and frothing bigots think it's a minority but I was wondering if it's factually considered a minority.

    Not in FPTP it isn't. It's actually the majority. ;)

    Majority can refer to the largest group, not just 51%, then it is often called a plurality.

    Just looked at the figures on the BBC.


    The largest increase in immigrants have come from India, not Poland. Poland became an EU member in 2004 so they've had plenty of time to catch up over the coverage period, yet they haven't despite easier migration routes.

    So why all the bitching about polish, surely the Indians should be getting the flack.

    Maybe people are so used to Indians now that they're not bothered by their presence. Maybe the same will happen with polish migrants. Maybe integration will work.

    Maybe.

    It's interesting to see some people squirm about the fact that White British are now under 50% in London, when British as a whole constitute over half (if I understand?). Not about skin, oh no.

    As far as I can tell, well over 80% of the country is still White British, and 90% British. What the fuck is the issue with that?

    Integration - now that's a different matter.

    Yes Integration is the long term goal and that is much harder to measure.

    Need to see stat's on number of British Born + immigrant marriages.

    It doesn't matter anyway, the government are taking the long term subtle approach to reducing immigration. Gradually destroying the country and the public infrastructure to ensure no one would ever want to live here.

    They're reversing their attitude to Chinese students. The idiots finally realised that we were losing a lot of money from student fees. Although it's already hit us hard.

    The idiocy in the government never ceases to amaze me.

    From a purely mathematical view, a majority of 100% is 51%, so 44%, even if it is the largest single group is not a majority.

    Technically though it only counts a Minority if you can lump all the other groups together so its 56% would be a majority [Giving a Majority and a Minority - from the dictionary definition as "The smaller in number of two groups forming a whole"].

    Socio-politically, rather than Mathematically, it's a matter of opinion as the definition then becomes
    "a. A racial, religious, political, national, or other group thought to be different from the larger group of which it is part.
    b. A group having little power or representation relative to other groups within a society."

    I have to say that there's a lot of the British public doing the same thing off their own backs with no encouragement from government.

    There's morons everywhere not just in government.

    @jellyhead Of course. Every group, every race, every religion and every culture has its idiots. Just a shame that some of ours are running the country.
