But a Metropolitan Police officer, speaking on condition of anonymity, told Breitbart London: “Islamification has and is occurring. Muslim areas are not new.” The officer, who has most of his experience in West London and across various police constabularies, added: “When I was a teenage lad in [B]urnley there were no go white areas. This IS the case still nationally… including London where you have to have extra vigilance in certain parts when you are working”.
"Rob", currently serving in the Met Police, insisted police weren't scared, but admitted bosses had told officers to avoid wearing uniforms in certain places in the capital. He told Nick Ferrari: "There has been a time when it's been advised not to wear half-blues or uniform to and from work. "It's like damage limitation. You try to do the most you can to prevent anything bad from happening. "All intelligence is around you and you do the best with that to essentially stay safe. And if that means taking measures to not identify yourself off-duty too much then so be it. "It's covering your backs. It's a common sense approach."
Regarding no-go areas in London, Rob added: "With gang crime in London, there are areas which you wouldn't go into as a pair of cops in a car because of the fear of having things thrown at you when you're driving through certain estates - bottles etc.
"There are areas when you have to be a little switched on about what's happening in the world."
Afterwards, Nick Ferrari commented: "Hang on a second, maybe there is something in what Donald Trump said. Police are being advised not to travel to and from work in their uniforms.
"So suddenly all this "How dare he say this about London", well no the Met Police accept it as well.
"I appreciate this isn't radicalisation. But certain estates they only go mob-handed - I don't blame them for a second.
A Lancashire Police officer told MailOnline: 'There are Muslim areas of Preston that, if we wish to patrol, we have to contact local Muslim community leaders to get their permission'.
One officer from Yorkshire said on the online forum Police.Community: 'I'm not allowed to travel in half blues to work anymore IN MY OWN CAR as we're 'All at risk of attack' - yet as soon as someone points out the obvious it's 'divisive

If this is so bad why does the UK let them get away with this?
I personally think this is way out of bounds
But I imagine it’s not a crime if they let it happen

So let me get this straight a group of people that it is known to have a smaller radical group within that group are responsible for known acts of terrorism are in a community that won't allow the police to even go into, or they are afraid to go into.

Help me with this because I keep hearing people say, that only less than 0.5% of the Muslims are radicalised, and the good and modest Muslims don't support them, or even recognize them was Muslims.
So how does this handful of radicalised Muslims terrorize and rule a whole town to the point that even the police have no sway?
Maybe some of those people that are so quick to defend the good and moderate Muslims might want to entertain the thought that maybe keeping quiet and not intervening, is the same as supporting.

Well, it's beginning to look like there's some truth to some of the rationale Trump used to justify his statements, police officers in London are indeed concerned for their safety in some Muslim communities:
'Trump’s not wrong – we can’t wear uniform in our OWN cars': Five police officers claim Donald Trump is RIGHT about parts of London being so 'radicalised' they are no-go areas

Not buying the racism angle of Rotherham at all. It wasn't incompetence and hand wringing PC liberalism; for it to have occurred on the scale it did there had to be council officials, members of social services and people within the police involved at various levels.
The report found several staff described being nervous about identifying
the ethnic origins of the perpetrators for fear of being considered racist
Others had clear direction from managers NOT to do so
Political correctness making people brain dead or just scared, it's this spineless stupidity that has allowed Trump to flourish because people have had enough, they want it to stop, if they need to put a buffoon into office to make it stop they are willing to do it, how pathetic is that?
We have two Londoners in this thread that I know off Charlie, you and I. One is a Muslim and the other not. I have lived all over London including East London, (Hackney, Tower Hamlets, Mile End) and I have seen this for myself, you may be slightly biased in your views.

I lived in London for 7 years, but nowhere in London is as rough as Salford in Manchester. I wouldn't even walk the streets in many parts of Manchester, proper rough, like Beirut. Burnt out cars all over the place. No Muslims though, just white scallies who hated students. You'd have to be brave to walk to Salford precent at any time of the day. I was never afraid of walking anywhere in London like I was in Manchester. I lived in Tooting Bec and camberwell and near Peckham rye too. Never had a problem.

I think they are jumping on the bandwagon. I think they don't wear uniform in the bad areas cos of gangs....not islam. I haven't heard of police being stabbed for religious reasons before. Plus it's the daily mail so it couldn't be more sensationalised if it wanted to be. The real problem is in Birmingham, not London. If trump wanted credit he would have mentioned that area instead. Then he could possibly be correct.

They're full of s#...
I'm originally from one of the roughest parts of London, if not the roughest and the only reason it's a "no go" for police is because we hate their lying manipulative guts...
They've been setting people up for years where I'm from...
It's called backlash, & it's nothing to do with Islamification...
It's been happening long before Muslims had any significant numbers within London communities.
