Trevor Phillips says he has identified a chasm of difference between Muslims and non-Muslims in Britain.

But surely it is only possible to identify that chasm if an equally representative number from both groups have been asked the same questions.

Otherwise all you really have is a chasm between what the selected sample seem to believe and what you assume everyone else believes.

Share with us the findings of the most detailed and comprehensive survey of Atheist, Agnostic, Anglican, Baptist, Buddhist, Catholic, Conservative, Hindu, Humanist, Jewish, Liberal, Methodist and Pentecostal opinion ever, and then maybe we can draw salutary conclusions about worrying trends in British society.

That probably wouldn’t make great television though.
