One Fifth Of European Union Muslim By 2050

(Telegraph) – BRITAIN, SPAIN AND HOLLAND will have an even higher proportion of Muslims in a shorter amount of time, an investigation by The Telegraph showed today.

Last year, five per cent of the total population of the 27 EU countries was Muslim. But rising levels of immigration from Muslim countries and low birth rates among Europe’s indigenous population mean that, by 2050, the figure will be 20 per cent, according to forecasts.

Data gathered from various sources indicate that Britain, Spain and Holland will have an even higher proportion of Muslims in a shorter amount of time.

The UK, which currently has 20 million fewer people than Germany, is also projected to be the EU’s most populous country by 2060, with 77 million people.

The findings have led to allegations that policy-makers are failing to confront the widespread challenges of the ‘demographic time bomb.’

Experts say that there has been a lack of debate on how the population changes will affect areas of life from education and housing to foreign policy and pensions.

Although some polls have pointed to a lack of radicalisation in the Muslim community, little attention is being given to the integration of migrants, it is claimed, with fears of social unrest in years to come.

  1. Ouch. Spink is bound to jump on this one.

    Just when i was beginning to think he didnt have a leg to stand on anymore

    • He doesn’t, Cynical. Spink only has one weapon in his political armoury, and that is ‘protest.’ He never has anything useful to say and the public is well aware of that fact.

      We don’t need politicians whose only platform is ‘I object,’ we need those that say ‘I propose,’ whom have useful ideas – and have the ability to get the job done.

      Spink does not meet any of those requirements.
