Number of British citizenships in an 11 years period
1997-2007 – including a correction of the number of
Number of granted British citizenship a year 1997-2007:
In the period 1997 to 2007 1,197,640 british citizenships were granted – with 7-11 percent refusials of applications behind.
Most of the approved applicants had the latest earlier citizenship in Asia, Africa and the Middle East. This means we have to account with a growth rate of 4% a year caused by the births among the naturalized in UK.
Alone thoss 11 years’ of granting British citizenship has lead to a population increase of British citizens of 1,397,640 who are counted as british citizens, even though the fertility and other culture are most different from that of the Brits – fertility 3 times higher.
In 2004 the Non-British were official estimated to 8.9 percent of the population, in 2007 this share rose to 10.7 percent, compare with: http://danmark.wordpress.com/2009/05/08/the-united-kingdom-will-have-17-7-mio-more-within-the-next-25-years-det-forenede-kongerige-opererer-fortsat-med-gigantisk-indvandring-i-sine-planer/
This increase will not surprise when you have realized that the total population growth come entirely from an explosive growing immigration, births among the foreign citizens, and in addition the births by the naturalized and their children. The British births do not replace the number of deads and emigrated Brits, the number British births is 43 percent too small.
This implies that 5.090 million foreigners have to added to the number of children and grandchildren born by naturalised in UK, and we maintain that the number then is more than doubled, if all naturalized children are incounted. Then the share of foreigners is 11-12 millions of totally 61 millions in 2009 – 18-20 percent.
Our estimate is totally safe after we have analysed the development of immigration to Denmark and the development of granting of citizenships in Denmark in the period 1979-2006: http://www.lilliput-information.com/uscan.html
Just the 11 years period 1997-2007 in UK add up til 1,397,640 that have to be added to the 5,090,000 Non-UK born foreigners. The longer a period that is corrected the more children have to be added.
