British white people are soon to become the minority in Birmingham while nearly 50,000 residents in the city cannot speak English, according to a new report.

There are thought to be residents from nearly 200 countries living in Birmingham which has been described as 'super diverse' in the city council's new cohesion strategy.

But while there are recognised benefits to a multi-cultural society such as trade links, the city's varied ethnicity has also been identified as major factor in social segregation and community 'tension'.

The draft policy, which is due to be tabled before the council's cabinet today (Tuesday, June 26), states that 42.1 per cent of people in Birmingham classified themselves as non-white British in the 2011 census.

That was an increase of 12 per cent from the 2001 survey and if the rate continues by the time of the next census in 2021 more than half of the city's 1.2 million-plus population will be from an ethnic minority.

This is already the case for under 18s with 60 per cent coming from a non-white British background in the last poll.

"Birmingham is soon to become a majority minority city," the report states.

One of the main issues is that areas where there is a 'high concentration' of ethnic minority groups, particularly black and Asian communities, have become more disadvantaged.

Another problem is in employment where Birmingham's rates are languishing way below the national average - 65 pc of working age residents in jobs compared to the national average of 74 pc in 2016.

This is not helped by the fact that high numbers of Pakistani and Bangladeshi residents have no qualifications, while at least 47,005 citizens are unable to speak English.

But there are recognised positives to a multi-cultural society.

The report states: "Ethnic diversity can bring many benefits such as transnational trading links and high levels of cultural resource.

"Birmingham has benefited from its diverse migrant communities who have settled in the city and successfully contributed to its economic vitality, becoming leaders in education, medicine, sports, arts and business and providing employment opportunities to local people.

"Our demographic landscape is increasingly becoming ethnically and socially ‘super diverse’, which means a greater understanding of the changes in cultural norms, identities and social shifts in how we live work and learn is needed."

The strategy aims at tackling a number of other barriers in the way of community cohesion including economic growth, gender inequality, job security, deprived neighbourhoods, educational attainment, income inequality and an ageing population.

Equalities chief Cllr Tristan Chatfield said: "Birmingham faces a number of difficult social issues that have an impact on cohesion; whilst
these are not unique to our city, we cannot assume that national government policy will address them.

"These are complex challenges and they are also rapidly evolving.

"Collectively, Birmingham should lead by example in challenging anything that prevents our citizens from reaching their full potential, including discrimination, poverty, segregation or a lack of ambition."

The cabinet is expected to approve the draft strategy goes out to public consultation.

An even bigger shithole than London.

I’m going to London for two weeks around the beginning of November. Here’s hoping I don’t get stabbed.

Watch out for acid attacks and don't forget to take your table knife licence with you.

Yes, take care.

Also avoid steak places and any place that serves food that must be sliced.
KNIVES CAN KILL YOU ;)
