These statistics issued by ONS (Office of National Statistics) are INTERESTING READING. Check it out!

via Babies born in England and Wales had a father with an average age of 32.6 in 2011.

For me, I suppose that everything was in line with my expectations until I reach the paragraph on the percentage of children born to non-UK born fathers in 2011:

Just under a quarter (24%) of babies born in 2011 in England and Wales had fathers who were themselves born outside the UK. Of the 171,702 babies born to non-UK born fathers in 2011, one in nine had a father born in Pakistan, the most common country of birth for non-UK born fathers. Poland and India were the second and third most common countries of birth for non-UK born fathers respectively.

With hard statistics like these from the ONS, my mind was pondering the following open question:

What are the economic, social and political implications of an increasing number of UK babies born to Pakistani, Polish and Indian fathers who themselves were born outside the UK?

Any thoughts?
