Nigel Farage says London blighted by ‘wholly Muslim areas’ as he defends Donald Trump’s response to the attack

Nigel Farage has criticised Sadiq Khan, the mayor of London, for his response to Saturday night’s attack – accusing him of being “hidebound by political correctness” and praising President Donald Trump for his own, controversial, reaction to the news.

Mr Farage appeared on Fox News on Sunday morning, and told the American audience that the mayor was too timid in his response.

“I understand the man not wanting to spread panic,” said Mr Farage.

“But I would like him to say, as the first Muslim mayor, I am going to drive radicals out of our mosques. I am going to work to end extremism in our schools.

“And I didn’t hear a word of that.”

    And who does the CBC turn to for a politician’s view on what happened in Britain? Why Elizabeth May of the Green Party of course. And of course May ranted about how evil Trump is for blaming muslims and the muslim mayor of London. Its all islamophobia.

    If the truth is to be told, Islam IS a blight.
    It really is.
    Blights must be physically removed from society for the betterment of the rest of society.

    “Drive them out!” was Trump’s face to face message to the heads of 50 Muslim countries. His words are more valid than ever.

    Trump’s job is the safety of Americans and everything else he does is in support of that role. Screw the rest of the world.

    Same applies to major Canadian cities referencing Mr. Farage on wholly muslim areas.

    Nigel himself is being very PC in my opinion, since what else could one expect when the mayor is Muslim. Another example of how that plays is Calgary.
