Immigration: proof that The Sun is talking bollocks

Yesterday’s edition of The Sun claimed that foreigners would outnumber native British people in London by 2031.

Well, whaddya know? It turns out that The Sun’s claim is complete and utter bollocks. Full Fact has checked the facts and discovered a dubious form of statistical methodology:
(Abuse of research + absurd extrapolations =) bollocks + malevolence + dishonesty = complete bollocks.
Complete bollocks + desire to make money by feeding prejudices = complete and utter bollocks.
