This new poll finds widespread Islamophobia among Conservative Party members

LONDON Four out of ten Conservative Party members want limits placed on the number of Muslim people entering the UK, according to a new poll which finds widespread Islamophobia in the party.

The YouGov poll of Conservative Party members, for the anti-racist campaign group Hope Not Hate, found that 40% of members wanted limits on the number of people of the Islamic faith entering the country, as opposed to just 5% who want to see fewer Christians or Jewish people.

The poll also found that:

* 43% of Conservative Party members "would prefer to not have the country led by a Muslim"
* 45% believe that "there are areas in Britain in which non-Muslims are not able to enter,"
* 67% believe that "there are areas in Britain that operate under Sharia law."
* 39% believe that "Islamist terrorists reflect a widespread hostility to Britain amongst the Muslim community."

The poll also found that 79% of members think that Islamophobia isn't a problem in the party (well, not for those voting that it isn't, obviously), so the inquiry Sajid Javid arm-twisted the other leadership contenders into supporting during the hustings isn't necessary.
