Too many people in Britain hold views opposed to our values


Director Sebastian Payne writes for iNews on the YouGov Hamas survey results and what they tell us about our society. He writes:

“YouGov surveyed the nation this week to gauge their views on Hamas. The results should shock any decent person. Keep in mind this is an organisation that has reportedly beheaded babies and indiscriminately murdered and taken hostage pregnant women and Holocaust survivors alike. The polling shows that 27 per cent of Britons “don’t know” whether Hamas is a terrorist organisation. Among 18 to 24-year-olds, that rises to a staggering 49 per cent. We can take some comfort in what the majority thinks, but ignoring this vocal minority would be a massive mistake.”
