Boris Johnson today branded Muslim extremists as tortured 'w*****s' who look at porn because they fail at relationships with girls.

In a series of explosive comments the London mayor also accused Muslim community leaders of doing too little to defeat radical ideology.

Johnson is hoping to returning to Parliament in the general election as the MP for Uxbridge in west London.

The mayor told the Sun newspaper the most likely candidates for radicalisation were young men in desperate need of self-esteem.

'If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w*****s. Severe onanists.They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failure and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort - which of course is no comfort. They are just young men in desperate need of self-esteem who do not have a particular mission in life, who feel that they are losers and this thing makes them feel strong - like winners.

– Boris Johnson, Mayor of London
