London, May 29 (ANI): Almost one in three Britons have admitted to being racist, a poll has revealed.
According to OnePoll, one in three admitted that they regularly made comments or were involved in discussions that could be considered racist.
Moreover, more than one in ten admitted they had been accused of being racist by someone close to them, The Daily Mail reports.
According to the poll, almost 88 percent of the respondents classed themselves as 'White British'.
Almost one in six Britons demanded Britain to close its doors to anyone who is not a UK national.
However, the government's immigration policy was slammed by many of those who participated in the poll.
Anti-racism campaign group Hope Not Hate, said they were not 'surprised' by the poll results.
"These are very disappointing findings. The positive way to look at it the majority of Britain's shun this behaviour," the group said.
The worrying figure emerged in a poll of 2,000 adults who were asked to express their views about foreign nationals living and working in this country. (ANI)
