During a discussion in the United States Friday morning, London Mayor Boris Johnson said Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal’s recent claims regarding the existence of so-called “no-go zones” in his city are “complete nonsense.”

“I would be more than happy personally to escort Gov. Jindal around any area that he thinks is a no-go zone, and I will show him what a happy, thriving community it is with people jumbled up in all sorts of ways,” Johnson said during a Politico Playbook breakfast in Washington, D.C.

Jindal raised eyebrows and drew national attention when he claimed that there are Muslim enclaves in London ruled by strict Islamic law and where non-Muslims are unwelcome. The governor’s office responded to the backlash with a lengthy news release citing reports that it claimed prove the existence of no-go zones.

“There are no no-go zones,” Johnson said flatly Friday.
