Now that immigration/racial/culture issues are getting increasingly high, and Britain's still at pretty much a divide politically after Brexit, what's going to happen to the UK in the future?

E.g.
Will Christianity be a minority religion and Islam take over?

or will the UK be under the shape of Right Wing ideologies?

40 years from now? The average Brit will weigh 22 stone and will be on multiple medications to counter the self-inflicted lifestyle diseases that come with excessive calorie consumption and an idle lifestyle.

To me, the threat to our wellbeing posed by our current lifestyles is a far greater concern for our future than the number of foreigners in the UK.

He's talking about the future, not the present. The non-white population in the UK will be almost 30% by 2050, i.e. in 33 years' time, which is quite an increase from today's 17%..
Source?

You do know that 93% of statistics are made up on the spot, right

Its irrefutable that white people will eventually become a minority in the UK.
That's completely delusional. That's never happened in any country anywhere, and people are not just going to sit idly by whilst they become minorities in their own country.

Do you mean White or "White British"? The former was 87% at the last census, which as far as I'm aware are the most recent hard stats.

Why? In the 1970s, the US was roughly 87% white, just like the UK is now. Today, whites are a minority of births. So it is inevitable the US will become minority white. And the UK is only decades behind the US.

"Sit idly by"? There is nothing wrong in becoming a minority. The UK does not "belong" to the "white race".
My biggest worry with British citizens becoming a minority is what is replacing a lot of people. Mainly Islam. Christianity has a lot of horrible social attitudes as well but it's very reformed as a religion by this stage. Whereas Islam hasn't reformed well as a religion to the modern day, leaving a lot of the archaic rules of Islam as a normality for many more in the UK, which isn't ideal.

Are they? We're probably more tolerant now than we've been over the generations. Immigration remains high and creates some tensions, but we're hardly troubled by racism any more than any other society - and it's a lot less of an issue than it was in the past.

The same goes for political division. Giving people binary, emotive choices tends to be divisive, but it's not like we haven't been politically divided before. Things were probably starker in the 1980s than they are now.

Will Christianity be a minority religion and Islam take over?
We're increasingly a country of minority religions: even though figures show we are still a predominantly Christian country, you really have to wonder when the last time many of these people saw the inside of a church, never mind actually belonging to one or agreeing with its doctrine.

Islam retains a greater hold on its adherents, but equally there are plenty of token Muslims in this country - and I suspect that trend will continue as first and second generation immigrants die off. But let's not forget: there's not a great many Muslims in Britain.

Bluntly, Muslims form 5% of the UK population. You'd have to be pretty off your rocker to suggest an Islamic Britain is around the corner.

or will the UK be under the shape of Right Wing ideologies?
Depends where you draw the line between centre-right and right-wing.

5% seems a small percentage, sure, but it is the rate of population growth and its speed that matters.

In ten years the Muslim population has almost doubled. Between the 2001 and 2011 censuses.

More it has a very young age profile, with very high birth rates and a relatively small proportion of elderly people.

An Islamic Britain is not around the corner but it will not be long before it starts to have a societal impact disproportionate to its numbers.

Look at the tensions we are encountering with just one in twenty of us Muslims.

What will happen when they become one in ten, then one in five?

Will will be the UK a fully independent nation and still be a Christian majority or maybe atheist
