Over 99% of Syrian refugees admitted to UK in 2017 were Muslims, despite “horrendous persecution” of Christians


The number of Christians granted asylum by Britain has slumped considerably since 2016, when 1.5 per cent were Christians. Last year that percentage dropped to just 0.23 - amounting to 11 of the 4,832 Syrians who were resettled in the UK. The May government, however, has its obvious priorities. It must not do anything that might offend its Muslim constituency and lose its votes, after all.
