The latest information on citizenship decisions can be found in the UK Visas and Immigration Transparency Data:

https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/immigration-statistics-year-ending-september-2018/list-of-tables#citizenship

Table cZ_09 Shows reasons for refusal. However, this only gives broad reasons for refusal. A case refused on the basis of notoriety would be within the ‘not of good character’ statistic along with many other aspects of good character.

No comparable data is available for visa or asylum applications.
