Newham Council, the body responsible for one of the UK’s most non-white areas, is attempting to rehouse thousands of its surplus families in the North East.
84.1% of children in Newham have at least one foreign parent, and over 70% of the population is non-white. Completely coincidentally, it also has the lowest employment rate of any London borough (56.2%) and one of its highest crime rates.
Two of London’s other most ethnically cleansed boroughs, Westminster (highest crime rate in London) and Tower Hamlets (aka The Islamic Republic of), are also considering the idea.

Don’t say we didn’t warn you.
The Northern Echo: A LONDON council struggling to find homes for poor families because of soaring rents wants to relocate homeless people 250 miles away in the North-East.
Newham Council has written to at least one housing association in the region looking for accommodation for the 32,000 families on its waiting list.
Fabrick Housing Group, which manages 14,500 properties from North Tyneside to York, confirmed to The Northern Echo that it had received a letter from the London authority asking if it could lease some of its housing.
Earlier this week, Newham Council was accused of “social cleansing” after it confirmed it had written to 1,179 housing associations, including one in Stoke-on-Trent, looking for properties for homeless families.
However, the letter to a North-East housing association reveals that the London authority is prepared to send families 100 miles further north than the Staffordshire town.
Monica Burns, North-East manager for the National Housing Federation, said the region had its own housing waiting list of more than 75,000 people.
She said: “They don’t seem to appreciate that we have our own housing crisis as well.
“We don’t have any homes to house these people in, never mind the jobs for them.
“It doesn’t seem to be an acceptable solution at all, even if people were willing to move.”
