Most Britons feel ethnic minorities are threat to ‘Britishness,’ study reveals

The majority of Britons believe ethnic minorities living in the UK are a threat to their culture, a new study suggests

Up to a quarter of the population thinks immigrants are snatching jobs, while just over a third (34 percent) believe that they take more from the nation than they contribute, according to this year’s Aurora Humanitarian Index survey.

The study also found that respondents believe Brexit will have an impact on the UK’s ability to deal with the exodus of refugees flowing into Europe from war-torn areas.

A large number of people lack confidence in world leaders to tackle the refugee crisis, the survey found, and when it comes to Prime Minister Theresa May only a minority (15 percent) think she is the best figure to resolve the issue.
