Delivery drivers in the UK have designated large parts of London as “no-go zones” in response to an increasing number of acid and knife attacks.
London has officially become the world capital of reported acid attacks, according to Breitbart, which reported that the problem is now affecting everyday life. “We used to work till 2 a.m., now people are stopping before 10 p.m.,” one moped driver told The Sun. “After 8 p.m. or 9 p.m., we’re not going to those dangerous places.”
Local officials brag about the “ethnically diverse” neighborhoods of Hackney and Stoke Newington, but delivery drivers say they’re simply too dangerous to go into now.
So-called “regenerated” regions such as Elephant & Castle and Stratford are actually plagued with child sex grooming gangs along with the acid attacks. They’ve been designated no-go zones by delivery drivers despite having been the recipient of a £12.5 billion investment in recent years, which marked the largest urban regeneration program in Europe.
President Donald J. Trump was slammed for calling attention to some of the problems faced by Britain and its capital city as a result of mass immigration, especially that of terror attacks committed by Islamic extremists.
In response, London’s mayor, Sadiq Khan, has denied Trump’s truths. He boasts that “the world looks to London as a beacon of diversity” and points to Trump as the problem. To that end, Khan has repeatedly called for the American President to be banned from Britain.

The delivery drivers are making their point however, as MPs from the Khans own political party are now sounding the alarm on crime in London. Former Labour minister Stephen Timms has called for “serious action” on areas of the city rendered “no-go zones” by acid attacks.
“I’ve had a number of discussions with representatives of moped delivery drivers and they say there are now parts of London where their drivers are not willing to go because of the danger of attack,” said the East Ham MP. And he should know, Timms almost lost his life after an Islamist woman tried to stab him to death in 2010.
“I think all of us would regard it as unacceptable that there are no go areas in parts of London and parts of the UK. I think it requires some significant action to deal with the problem,” said Timms.
