A2 Beliefs and AS Methods: Survey for Channel 4 documentary finds 23% want sharia law but most feel strong connection with Britain

In the Y13 class today I mentioned the ICM poll which investigated British Muslim attitudes. The research was commissioned by Channel 4 for the documentary, What British Muslims Really Think, and will be broadcast at 10pm on Wednesday 13th April 2016: http://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2016/apr/11/british-muslims-strong-sense-of-belonging-poll-homosexuality-sharia-law

For Y12 students, it is a good example of structured interview and a representative sample of 1,000 Muslims across Great Britain. A control sample of 1,008 people representative of the country as a whole were interviewed over the phone to provide a comparison: http://www.icmunlimited.com/data/media/pdf/Mulims-full-suite-data-plus-topline.pdf
