Almost HALF of Tory members want to ‘reduce Muslims coming to UK’, shock poll shows

Four in 10 Tory members think there should be a reduction in the number of Muslims entering Britain, according to the YouGov survey.

Almost half of Tory party members (40%) believe the Government should “lower the number of Muslims entering Britain,” according to the survey. The results of the YouGov poll for Hope Not Hate also show more than two thirds of those questioned (67%) believe the lie that parts of Britain operate under Sharia law.

The poll shows 45% also believe the falsehood, bolstered by Donald Trump, that there are “no go” areas for non-Muslims in the UK. And it shows 39% believe “Islamist terrorists reflect a widespread hostility to Britain amongst the Muslim community”. The 160,000 Tory members are the sole electorate who’ll decide between Jeremy Hunt and Boris Johnson to choose the next Prime Minister.

Matthew McGregor, Hope Not Hate’s campaigns director said: “From the grassroots to the great offices of state, Conservative members buy into racist myths, with almost half unwilling to have a Muslim Prime Minister – and only 8% being proud to have one – and most denying that there’s even an issue to confront.”
