We don’t have no-go areas, says Brown

“Gordon Brown risked accusations of being deluded yesterday by declaring there are no ‘no-go areas’ for non-Muslims in Britain. The Prime Minister dismissed fears raised by the Bishop of Rochester, the Rt Rev Michael Nazir-Ali, that Islamic extremists are cutting off many communities…. Mr Brown brushed aside the concerns as he answered a question from the Daily Express at his monthly press conference. His claim is bound to provoke accusations that he is out of touch with the experience of many people.”
