Nearly two-thirds of people believe there will be a 'clash of civilisations' between British Muslims and white Britons in the wake of the murder of a British soldier in Woolwich, a new poll shows.

The number of those who believe such a clash is inevitable has increased by 9% from last year.

There has also been a small increase in the proportion of people who believe British Muslims pose a serious threat to democracy, up to 34% on Thursday and Friday from 30% in November 2012, according to the YouGov survey of 1,839 adults.

The risible Matthew "we need more research and, by the way, I could do it if you give me a grant" Goodwin pops up in the Observer today, trying to put a pro-Muslim spin on the results of a poll conducted in the immediate aftermath of the Woolwich jihad attack.

Despite his dishonest presentation, glimmers of truth emerge.
59% expect a serious clash between British (sic) Muslims and white Britons.
There are some challenging results, such as the finding that the number of citizens who think that conflict between groups is "largely inevitable" has risen by seven points to 40%, or that agreement with the suggestion that there will be a serious clash between British Muslims and white Britons has also risen, by nine points to 59%.

Only 33% consider Islam to be compatible with the British way of life.
Compared with last year, when we ran the same survey, people are now either just as likely, or more likely, to endorse a series of more positive statements: that Muslims are compatible with the national way of life; are good citizens; make important contributions to society; and share British culture and values.

In fact, while far-right groups were pointing to the murder as evidence that Islam poses a fundamental threat to modern Britain, the percentage of respondents who view Muslims as compatible jumped by almost 10 points to 33%. Clearly, the numbers remain low, and point to wider challenges facing government and our local communities.

Goodwin boasts of the "generational gap" in perceptions of Muslims.
Second, we also find a very clear and sharp divide across generations. Whereas expectations of a future clash between Muslims and non-Muslims are especially pronounced among citizens aged 60 and above (at 70%), among 18- to 24-year-olds this figure tumbles to 48%.

Whereas only 21% of the older group view Muslims as compatible with British life, the figure among young Britons is almost twice as high, at 38%. Whereas almost half of the over-sixties view British Muslims as posing a serious threat to democracy, the equivalent figure among more recent generations is just 19%.

Of course, in a country undergoing demographic conquest, a disproportionately high share of the youth population inevitably consists of Muslims and other aliens. It's hardly surprising, therefore, that they take a more positive view of themselves than those who actually are British.

Goodwin notes the polling about the EDL with glee.
While the proportion of people who say they are aware of the EDL has risen since last year, an overwhelmingly majority – 84% – said they would "never consider" joining the group, which is up seven points since 2012.

It is impossible to evaluate this result without knowing how many more people are more aware of the EDL than was the case the previous year. What's clear, though, is that 16% of the population - between 5 and 10 million people, more than all the Muslim colonists in the country -, if we are to extrapolate, would consider joining the EDL. An extraordinary punch in the face for the multicult.

It is crazy how someone who is supposed to be impartial can put such spin on research findings that they give the impression the findings support the complete opposite view. Don't trust academics, politicians or anyone in a position of authority. They are knowingly complicit in our physical displacement, cultural decline and eventual extinction.

The 33% are the white flight deniers who typically live in affluent ghettos like Hebden Bridge, from which they berate us all for not loving the colonisers; colonisers from whom they fled London once they became minorities in their own areas. Scum the lot of 'em.

Give or take a couple of months, the silly antics of EDL with their black balaclavas this week, they might get more members if they can change their image, I suspect that many more would support them but don't dare to say this openly.
