Half of UK Conservative party members believe Islam 'incompatible with British way of life'

A new poll suggests that nearly half of all members of the ruling Conservative Party in the United Kingdom believe Islam is incompatible with British life.

The poll, conducted by YouGov on behalf of Hope Not Hate, surveyed 1,213 members of the Conservative party and showed 57 percents of respondents held negative attitudes towards Muslims, with another 47 percent believing Islam was "a threat to the British way of life".

Meanwhile, 4o percent of respondents believed the UK should restrict the number of overseas Muslims allowed to enter the country. Another 45 percent agreed with the statement "there are no-go areas in Britain where Sharia law dominates and non-Muslims cannot enter".

It also found 48 percent of respondents nonetheless believed that there was little or no discrimination against Muslims in Britain.  Hope Not Hate noted the attitudes of Tory party members were "far worse" than the general British public's attitudes to Islam, with 30 percent of respondents in a previous poll of the general population agreeing that Islam was a "threat to the British way of life".
