Almost half (49%) of the Conservative members questioned in a new survey don’t believe that schools should be required to educate children about LGBT relationships.


The staggering statistic was one of many revealed in a YouGov survey, commissioned by Channel Four’s Dispatches programme, which questioned 892 Tory members.

The poll also revealed that 56% of those surveyed thought Islam was ‘generally a threat’ to the British way of life, with just 22% thinking it was ‘generally compatible’.


It was also revealed that 58% believe the death penalty should be allowed for certain crimes, 54% think Donald Trump would make a good party leader and British prime minister, 42% feel that having people from a wide variety of racial and cultural backgrounds has damaged British society, 51% are of the opinion that most people on benefits could get a job if they tried hard enough, and 46% said concerns about climate change had been exaggerated.
