The Daily Mail has reported:
"Donald Trump tonight faced calls to be banned from Britain over 'obnoxious, repellent and dangerous' claims that police in London 'fear for their lives' because some communities are so radicalised... In an unprecedented condemnation, Mr Trump came under fire from Scotland Yard, Downing Street and the leading contenders to be London Mayor after he claimed areas of the British capital are too dangerous for police, sparking calls for him to be banned from Britain."
For regular readers of the Mail however, Trump's widely-criticised claims about 'no go' zones in Britain will be nothing new. Another right-wing blow-hard with a penchant for controversy and ill-informed opinions was banging on about this a full seven-years before Trump:
"This country is littered with 'no-go' areas, not just physically, but culturally, spiritually, intellectually and academically, too. Our very liberties are being torched in the name of 'diversity'. The pernicious doctrine of multiculturalism has turned us into a society where people are frightened to speak their minds and justice has been flipped on its head... It is beyond dispute that there is a concerted campaign by Islamic extremists to force sharia law on to significant areas of Christian Britain. And there is no doubt that in predominantly Muslim areas, they are winning."

All of which raises the question: If Trump gets banned can we also ban Littlejohn?
