A report shows that white Britons will soon be a minority in Birmingham. In the West Midland’s largest city, almost 50,000 of the 1.1 million inhabitants cannot speak English.
Birmingham has a diverse population with nearly 200 different nationalities. According to the new report, it “is soon to become a majority-minority city”.
In a 2011 census, 42.1% of the city’s inhabitants already classified themselves as ‘non-white British’, an increase of 12% compared to a 2001 survey.
