More people would support a political party that pledged to stop all immigration or promised to reduce the number of Muslims than one that encouraged multiculturalism, a survey conducted in the wake of the Olympics reveals.

Despite London 2012 being heralded as a celebration of a diverse society, the research suggests much of the electorate remains open to views traditionally associated with far-right groups.

The survey, conducted by YouGov with 1,750 respondents, found that 41% of people would be more likely to vote for a party that promised to stop all immigration, compared with 28% who said they would be less likely to support a group that promoted such policies.

In addition, 37% admitted that they would be more likely to support a political party that promised to reduce the number of Muslims in Britain and the presence of Islam in society, compared with 23% who said it would make them less likely.


Matthew Goodwin of the Extremis Project, an independent group monitoring extremism and terrorism that commissioned the research, said that, although Britain lacked a successful extremist political party, much of the public was susceptible to far-right ideology.

As ever the moral touchstone of democracy is absent from the considerations of the left and the risible Matthew Goodwin, the guy engaged in a game effort to see if you can actually earn a living solely by warning about the dangers of the "far right" or whether you need to supplement your income with a few late shifts in Mickey D's.


"But we got the young 'uns." Is this demographic conquest or successful indoctrination?
The UK poll results suggest, however, that Britain may struggle to host far-right groups capable of such popularity, revealing a striking generational divide in attitudes towards multiculturalism. It found that large majorities of 18-to -24-year-olds rejected radical rightwing policies, with 60% saying that a party campaigning to halt all immigration would make them less likely to support it or that it did not matter to them.

Less than a quarter of 18-to-24-year-olds said they would be more likely to vote for a party that promised to halt all immigration, compared with more than half of those aged above 60. Similarly, 27% of the younger age group said they would vote for a party that campaigned to reduce the number of Muslims, compared with 49% of those aged over 60.

If you can take it, there's more of Matthew Goodwin's spiel here, though there is actually no more substance to it than the article I already quoted.

Does the life experience of 18-24 year olds in any way compere in any way to those over 60?if it does,why arethe former age group excluded from various civic responsibilities,and would they have time to engage in them anyway,being at the mercy of hormones,drink,drugs and insufferable egos.

The younger groups are more likely to be more ignorant or easily influenced or pressured by those immigrants undesirable backward cultures, while older people who are wiser or who have seen the undesirable culture that third world immigrants typically displayed in UK or spread to UK, are more likely to oppose immigration from non-western countries. Anyway, immigration only benefit islam and third world immigrants. That is why I agreed with mostly the older aged group even if they ban immigration.

It doesn't matter. The Jews that run the West are determined to see White people of Christian heritage go extinct. The ballot box isn't the answer for Europeans, only revolt will make the establishment even think about listening to the people.

I am upset that less of the younger generation believe this. I think university is a big factor, all they do is churn out millions of liberal-thinking clones who think they're intelligent when actually they never think independently for themselves, ever.

Also, it's strange that in France the FN is actually more popular with the younger voters than with the older ones, I wonder why there is a difference between the countries.

@ DP111 Isn't 'British Freedom' part of the problem. There is no freedom in this union for the majority culture. Better to dismantle the Union and for England to be free again with her Christian faith & culture respected. The ruling Britons care not for England, the challenges faced are better overcome with this oppressive Kingdom gone. They can't even extradite terrorists!

I think the call to vote UKIP must be a joke. No thanks, fuck off.

Our politicians have allowed our judicial system to be geared toward the wrong doer...This is Left Liberal idealism at its worst and most dangerous. As in all the so called free world, the US included, we are ruled by Political Correctness force on us all by the extremist Liberal Left. THEY give more importance and support to the animals amongst us, hiding behind EU dictates and a self destroying need to be seen to be tolerant and culturally diverse...Quite nauseating really..
Career Politicians that have absolutely NO take on the real world...I despise them all...

Step by little step. Fist must be cessation of immigration. Second, to make flowing Islamic tenets and mores, difficult.

Unless this is done, it wont matter whether we have a union or not.

Briton has made a massive mistake by letting vipers into their nation. What we're presently witnessing world wide, are a preview of coming attractions, of Islamic called up hate, death, and destruction.

Always remember, in a war between a civilized man and a savage, always support the civilized man.

They are a disease on the planet and need to be treated as such.

Every time the name "Matthew Goodwin" is cited in such a report, treat it with extreme scepticism. He's associated with virtually every single leftist think tank in the book (Including the militant leftist Hope Not Hate group) and considers the anti E.U. Party UKIP, to be "Far right", essentially because he is a rabid Europhile, that hates Nation States to the point of nausea.

Ah, the old "Jews secretely run the world" schtick again. Can't you guys ever come up with something new for a change?

London 2012 a celebration of diverse society - yes. But the olympic area had to be turned into a virtual fortress including anti aircraft installations. Was this to repel an attack by Buddhists or perhaps Eskimos or maybe extremist South African Bushmen. NO - all this was there to protect against Catholics and everybody knows it. islam never factored into any of the preparations. It is after all the religion of peace and tolerance.

The elders presumably remember what Great Britain was like before excessive in-migration while the youngsters don't. I know that is true for me and my state of residence.

The British Freedom Party is the UK version of Geert Wilders Freedom Party in the Netherlands and was formed as an alternative to Nick Griffin's BNP, who many feel does not properly represent the freedom-loving patriotic voter. UKIP are unfortunately still unable to name and shame Islam as a fascist ideology that must be vanquished from these shores with the same gritty resolve we used to defeat Hitler's supporters.

I'm a great believer in democracy and especially in referendums.
The Swiss will hold a referendum on anything that is proposed and supported by
100,000 signatures.
The result if such a measure were taken in the UK would be expulsion of naughty
Pakis(abbreviation) .
Someone should start a party called the Referendum party.
Real democracy needs to be re-established !
