London Mayor Johnson: Jindal's No-Go Zones 'Complete Nonsense'

By    |   Friday, 13 Feb 2015 09:43 PM

London Mayor Boris Johnson blasts Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal’s claims of Muslim-controlled no-go zones in Britain as "complete nonsense," and says he may be in need of "some sort of gentle education."

Speaking in Washington at a breakfast hosted by Politico, the American-born, British-raised mayor would be happy to offer Jindal a lesson on the "jumbled up" ethnic mix in London.

"There are no no-go zones," Johnson said.

"It isn't true," he said, adding he'd be "more than happy to personally escort" Jindal to "any area of London he thinks is a no-go zone."

Jindal, a potential GOP candidate for president in 2016, referred to such alleged no-go zones while on a trip to London in January.

But despite coming under fire for the remarks, Jindal has largely stuck to his guns, saying he doesn't think entire cities are no-go zones, but that certain neighborhood are not welcoming to non-Muslims, Politico says.

"It’s complete nonsense," Johnson declared, Politico reports.

While withholding comment on presidential prospects for Jindal and another possible GOP candidate, Gov. Chris Christie — who drew criticism for his remarks on mandatory vaccines while visiting Britain last month — Johnson heaped praised on Hillary Clinton, the likely Democratic contender, calling her "absolutely brilliant," Politico reports.

It's a vastly different opinion than one he ventured in 2007, when he wrote of the former secretary of state and first lady:

"She represents, on the face of it, everything I came into politics to oppose … an all-round purse-lipped political correctness," he wrote, adding, "She’s got dyed blonde hair and pouty lips, and a steely blue stare, like a sadistic nurse in a mental hospital."
