The national census for England and Wales has come out, and, as usual, this once-a-decade event has had all of its most significant points overlooked.
By any measure, what it reveals is a country undergoing seismic
change. Over the course of a decade up to four million more people have
entered the country to live. In the capital, London, people identifying
themselves as "white British" have for the first time become a minority.
Perhaps most strikingly, the national Muslim population has doubled.
