    Sad Jobless Somali Refugee in a £2m Home Funded by the Taxpayer

    They say beggars can’t be choosers.
    But in the case of jobless Somali refugee Saeed Khaliif and his family, it seems they can.
    The Mail yesterday revealed how the Khaliifs have been given a £2million home in one of London’s most exclusive neighbourhoods, with taxpayers funding their £8,000-a-month rent.

    yeah most likely, though there were chinks in Liverpool and London in the 19th century - but they lived only in "Chinatown", one of the worst areas in the city.

    In 1596, Queen Elizabeth issued an "open letter" to the Lord Mayor of London, announcing that "there are of late divers blackmoores brought into this realme, of which kinde of people there are allready here to manie," and ordering that they be deported from the country, documents in the National Archive show.

    One week later, she reiterated her "good pleasure to have those kinde of people sent out of the lande" and commissioned the merchant Casper van Senden to "take up" certain "blackamoores here in this realme and to transport them into Spaine and Portugall." Finally, in 1601, she complained again about the "great numbers of Negars and Blackamoors which (as she is informed) are crept into this realm," defamed them as "infidels, having no understanding of Christ or his Gospel," and again authorized their deportation.

    In 1760, the city had at least 10,000 Negroes, and Elizabeth I as early as the late 16th century expressed disgust at the high number of 'blackamoors' in the city. In the 19th century, the Tower Docks region had a majority population of Indian and Middle Eastern lascars. The Kray twins represent the heritage of many Londoners, especially East Londoners: Jew and Gypsy. That's why many people where you live look like they do. Of course, many Londoners don't look like that. Many have recent ancestry from other parts of the country or have ancestry in parts of London non-whites didn't infect.

    Gypsies began to arrive in small numbers around this time. Elizabeth I tried to expel them with her 1562 Egyptian Act.29
    AFRICANS 1555-1833 and onwards, and WEST INDIANS
    Africans arrived in small numbers due to Britain's involvement in the slave trade. For example, Elizabeth I issued an open letter on 11 July 1596 when the population of Britain was around 3 million, which read:

    Her Majestie understanding that there are of late divers blackmoores brought into this realme, of which kinde of people there are allready here to manie … Her Majesty's pleasure therefore ys that those kinde of people should be sent forth of the lande, and for that purpose there ys direction given to this bearer Edwarde Banes to take of those blackmoores that in this last voyage under Sir Thomas Baskervile were brought into this realme the nomber of tenn, to be transported by him out of the realme. Wherein wee require you to be aydinge and assysting unto him as he shall have occacion, therof not to faile.34

    Again in 1601 she issued a proclamation which declared herself to be: highly discontented to understand the great numbers of negars and Blackamoores which are crept into this realm … who are fostered and relieved here to the great annoyance of her own liege people … should be with all speed avoided and discharged out of this Her Majesty's dominions.35

    Numbers continued to remain small -- albeit to manie for Elizabeth.

    However, towards the end of the 18th century, at the height of the slave trade, there was, relatively speaking, a large black population estimated variously between 10-20,000, mainly centred around London and the ports, in a total population in England and Wales of 9,000,000.36
    and America.
    INDIANS AND CHINESE 1700 and onwards
    There was no organised migration of Indians into Britain before WW2. However, tiny numbers of sailors, students, and professionals had been entering Britain since India's first contact with the Empire. Most returned after their mission was accomplished. As recently as 1939 the Indian population of the City of Birmingham was estimated at 100 -- that is, one hundred.39 The total of both Indians and Pakistanis in Britain in 1955 was 10,700.40 The 1991 Census put the number of Indians and Pakistanis at 840,255 and 476,555 respectively, and 162,835 Bangladeshis.

    Most of the early Chinese arrived as seamen, after the treaties of Nanking in 1842 and Peking in 1860 opened up China to British trade. However, their population in Britain remained very small. In 1871 it was recorded as 207, and as 1,319 in 1911.41 The 1991 Census put the number of Chinese in Britain at 156,938.
