Bear in mind that immigration has already changed Britain. All those ethnic peoples from the Carribean or other parts of the collapsing British Empire came here and settled. Although there's still a persistent cultural gap, there's been a high level of convergence and seeing afro-carribean peoples in Britain today generally means nothing. Some of them have a huge chip on their shioulder - which they use as an excuse to get their own way claiming they're so hard done by - the majority are just British people like any other. Their culture and mindset adds to our total as it were.

I agree that some immigrant populations don't readily mix -the islamic population in particular remains apart from mainstream society - but that in itself doesn't necessarily cause a problem.

There's little doubt that Englabnd will change culturally in the next two hundred years as it has over the last two hundred. We did after all absorb large numbers of irish and european peoples. Change is not necessarily bad.  Societies have to adapt to meet the challenges or potentially fail.

I think this last point is an important one. Nothing stays the same, and those societies that become rigid and resist change tend to be bowled over by history at some point. Japan resists any significant immigration, but has a shrinking, aging indigenous population, which leaves them in a quandary. How to pay the bills and man the workstations when so many are in their old age? France has fought hard to keep its language in a pristine state, but the prominence of French has declined anyway, giving way to English, which has been much more liberal about absorbing foreign words, and changing over time.

Yes, there's nothing more constant than change.
 
It started on day one, and will be still in affect long after I'm gone.
It's not that I was born in Ireland,
It's the Ireland that was born in me.
