Well that's just sad. To be honest, being being mixed race and all, I also avoid Bradford. Both the Asians and whites are just scum.

I like how the responses can be predicted based upon political affiliation.

Naz Shah got in trouble for her Twitter account liking and retweeting that tweet. Important to note it was by a parody account rather than Owen Jones himself.

I thought Bradford was on the up. The new fancy underground shopping centre looks dead nice, and the Broadway finally opened a couple of years ago after 11 years of development. I was hoping the city was having a renaissance.

It's really not bad. It's basically just Leeds but cheaper. They're refubishing loads of old factories and mills and putting in fancy apartments. I saw you can get a decent duplex in the Lister mills for about £650 a month, you couldn't get a bedsit for that anywhere near Leeds.

You can even get a place right next to the train station for even less. It's a relatively central location for someone who travels the country to be based, actually. All you have to do is not be racist.

It also has the brilliant National Media Museum, the Bradford Industrial Museum and the best value cinema I've found anywhere in the UK. Bradford is undoubtedly quite scruffy and run-down, but I found it to be a surprisingly welcoming and easy-going place.

Indeed, if you're not racist then you'll do fine.
Changed a fair bit since i moved away in 1993 but the rest of the family have always been there.

>National Media Museum

Didn't something happen with that? Something controversial, like most of the pieces being taken away to London.

The government substantially cut funding for museums in 2013. They were faced with either closing one of their three northern museums (MOSI, the National Railway Museum or the National Media Museum) or making cost savings across the board. As part of a broader rationalisation, the National Media Museum rebranded as the National Science and Media Museum, cancelled the Bradford International Film Festival and transferred part of their collection to other museums or secure storage. As I understand it, they decided to refocus the museum on the scientific and technical aspects of the media for financial reasons. Technology companies are more generous sponsors of museums than the film industry, and it's easier to attract school groups to a museum with the word "science" in the name.

For what it's worth, I think they made the right decision. The most important aspects of the museum remain fully intact and they've managed to fund a brand new gallery and a substantial refurbishment of their archives.

It's £10 to park. That's how they get people.

You're right, I remember now - it is still quite a bargain given how much you get to see. I was dead impressed by it (this might be because I really, really like trains, your mileage may vary).

That's fucking outrageous. Where do they think they are, London?

I think its more the fact that parking is a living nightmare in York and they probably do it to stop everyone using their place as a handy city-centre car park.
