Bradford Council was left leaderless today as Ian Greenwood lost his Little Horton seat after 17 years preventing Labour from taking overall control for the first time since 1999.

It took four recounts before the Labour leader finally accepted defeat by the tiny margin of just 17 votes to the Respect candidate, Alyas Karmani.

With his seat the last to declare, Labour needed just one more victory to put it in the driving seat.

In the event, it was left with 45 seats – an increase of two – but exactly half of the 90 seats on the Council, meaning that it will have to form an alliance with another party to stay in power.

However, Labour may yet have an ace up its sleeve because Councillor Imdad Hussain – who was not up for re-election this time – was suspended by the Regional Labour Party from his Heaton seat before the election after it emerged he had been disqualified as a company director for seven years after his company went into liquidation last year.

He is currently listed as an “Independent” councillor and the Labour party apparently believes that he will continue to vote with the party whether or not he is reinstated following the current investigation into his situation.

Before yesterday’s ballot of one third of the Council, the Green party had held the balance and – if Labour can’t rely on Imdad Hussain – may well do again but that will be a decision for whoever the Labour party chooses as its new leader.

Even if they failed to turn George Galloway’s “Bradford Spring” into Greenwood’s Labour Dawn, the party made enough gains on the back of the national wave of protests against the Coalition’s austerity measures to keep Respect from holding the balance of power.

Respect had put up candidates in 12 Bradford seats with George Galloway confidently predicting up to eight gains. In the event, they took just five.

The results meant that Respect’s hopes of the Bradford West by-election result bouncing them into a position where they held the balance of power turned as cold as the forecast for the bank holiday weekend weather.

The Conservatives and Liberal Democrats each finished the night with three fewer seats, on 24 and eight seats respectively, with the Greens remaining on three and five seats in the hands of independents.

Coun Greenwood said: "I am sad to lose obviously but I've been a politican for very many years and some elections you win and some you lose.

"The people can deliver you in to office and they can take that away, and I think all politicians should treat that with the humility that's appropriate.

"From the moment the by-election result was declared it was clear to me that I had a fight on my hands. I've never taken it for granted - I fought a hard campaign and it was unsucessful.

"The issue I have with this situation is that Mr Galloway and his colleagues have made an awful lot of promises, particularly to young people in the district, that I am not convinced they are going to be able to deliver and that bodes ill for the future in my view."

The result saw Respect's Alyas Karmani poll 2,191 votes followed by Coun Greenwood on 2,174.

Elsewhere, the next Lord Mayor of Bradford, Wharfedale Councillor Dale Smith, polled 2,252 votes, with Labour’s Dave Allen his closest rival with 694. Coun Smith said: “I am delighted. I had not assumed I would win as there is always a tension in local elections.” He said voters in Wharfedale were “anxious” about protecting the green belt from development, adding: “We recognise the need for affordable housing but we are concerned about the connectivity with places where there are jobs in Leeds and Bradford.”

Previously, Party affiliation was affected by class. Now, at least in Bradford, it appears affected by ethnicity. A new type of politics is dawning in Bradford and it is something our political leaders will have to take note of.

Vote has gone no to an elected Mayor.
That's the main good news - no chance of a rogue yielding one man power over a large budget.

at it again albino, can you not handle non whites voting, why does it upset you so much, are you worried that asians might finally get a voice.

theres been segregagtion in bradford for decades with complete areas, housing etc etc divided amongst racial lines, not that Respect is an asain only party as clearly people from all backgrounds are voting. ive never vote din my life but for hte first time i felt compelled to vote, and yes i voted respect. why? because i want change, i dont want my children growing up in apartheid with sub standard schooling and health services, and im pretty sure many others voted for change for the same reason. As always Albion, you remain an ignorant hate mongerer.

As for you Dicky, why dont yo come down to Bradford and see what else is affected by ethinity, it might be an eye opener for you.

Mr Greenwood is quoted thus: "The issue I have ... is that Mr Galloway and his colleagues have made an awful lot of promises, particularly to young people in the district, that I am not convinced they are going to be able to deliver and that bodes ill for the future in my view."
Respect have gained 5 seats and don't, and won't, hold the balance of power. To expect Respect to ‘deliver’ anything from the position of a small minority group is setting up a straw man. After 17 years as a Councillor Mr Greenwood knows that only too well.
If this ‘Mr G’ (G2) really does want to test the G1's supporters’ dedication to the cause of youth in Bradford, let him press his extant Labour Council colleagues to offer Respect a high profile post in a Youth focussed Directorate.

Then, G2, we will be able to start to judge if Respect, at a local level, is more than a rag-bag of opportunist G1 wagon jumpers.

Think it's a lot worse for Labour here than it looks at first glance. As only 1/3 of council seats were up for grabs, so Take previous and divide by 2 to find how many seats they should get to be standing still. Labour should have got 16 seats Cons should have got 8. Libs 2.5.
Perhaps it's the last echo of Gordon Browns government?

Having heard the bloke who beat Greenwood talking in vague generalisations about what he's going to do for the youth of Bradford without any specific policies, I suspect there's disappointment on the way.

George Galloway is indeed a very astute man. He was aware of a significant number of Bradford West's population that did not have any political affiliation, and who were ripe for the picking. Yes, many of these were people of Asian origin, mostly Muslim, but do not be fooled into thinking that only Muslims vote respect! There is a saying "in a democracy, the people get the politicians they deserve." That is only too true here in Bradford, it's just that one man had the intelligence to try and engage with people who previously felt that nobody spoke for them. Time will tell if Galloway and respect are here today, gone tomorrow.
I dont agree with a lot of what Galloway says, and I definitely dont like the way he goes about things sometimes, but if he can get Bradford spoken about as a place that is moving forward, he cannot be anything but good.

The acid test is the next six months. Since his election, he's made some bold statements regarding the Odeon, Westfield, and the two professional sports clubs. Lets see how he does. Out of those four 'projects' if he gets two of them up and running, he will have done more for this city than many politicians who were born and bred Bradfordians, have in the last 20 years. There isnt now an election campaign to win, the parliamentary seat and council seats are decided, so lets see how respect make a difference. If they dont, you can say "we told you so!" if they do we all win! so for the doom mongers who dont like respect and Galloway, you cant lose!

Happy Friday everyone!!!!

Happy Friday everyone!!!![/p][/quote]Now the elections are over we'll hear little of Galloway - he'll now concentrate on his real interests - the Middle East and his media career.

Talking of the respect candidate making promises he might not keep, why not look at yourself Greenwood and look at the actual promises you didn't keep not might not keep.

Remember the investigation on tax payers money for a cricket match in Leeds, what a soundbyte that was which wasn't followed through.
Westfield on site by February, thats another great one.
What about the true cost of the park that hasn't been revealed.
The turning a blind eye to the illegal markets and car washes across the city.
I could go on.

Mayors not wanted here !

The wise populace of Bradford have spoken, and rejected this anti democratic move to a Dictatorship.
We've seen how the people of Little Horton, on the four year cycle, ousted G2 (Ex Councillor, ex Labour Group leader, ex Council leader) Mr Greenwood.
Every year the ruling Political Party elect their 'First amongst Equals, to act de facto, as a City Mayor, for ONE YEAR.
That system has some element of Democracy about it.
Not giving one person ALL the power and marginalizing our Councillors even more than the Centralist Tories and their Big Business trough sharing snouters do with everything they can get their trotters on.

We Bradfordians stand proud today, waving the flag of support for the Road to True Democracy, yet again.

The acid test is the next six months. Since his election, he's made some bold statements regarding the Odeon, Westfield, and the two professional sports clubs. Lets see how he does. Out of those four 'projects' if he gets two of them up and running, he will have done more for this city than many politicians who were born and bred Bradfordians, have in the last 20 years.

Secondly I am sure we all saw the TV reports from Odsal today showing the dismay of Ian Greenwood and the jubilation of Alyas Karmani and his supporters - interestingly not one female or one white British face among them.
Here's a prediction for george galloway - if the respect party continues to gain power, he will find himself surplus to requirements in the islamic respect party.

Turn around and blame everybody else. The problem in every other racial community in Bradford has integrated, and respected the culture of the country they have chosen to become part of. Many years ago the council had a policy of integration through schools, ensuring children from all areas were taught together which had an impact On funding for other areas of education. This ended because the minority did not want it!
Spot on darkhorse.....When the Poles, Ukrainians' etc., came here after the war, they did not expect us to change for them. They sent their children to our schools to learn our language and then on a Saturday, they had their own school, to teach their children the cultures of their own countries. They had their own clubs, but still visited our clubs and made friends with us, so that we, as children, all grew up together as friends. The Asian community did not want this and so brought about their own segregation.

Many years ago the council had a policy of integration through schools, ensuring children from all areas were taught together which had an impact On funding for other areas of education. This ended because the minority did not want it![/p][/quote]Spot on darkhorse.....When the Poles, Ukrainians' etc., came here after the war, they did not expect us to change for them. They sent their children to our schools to learn our language and then on a Saturday, they had their own school, to teach their children the cultures of their own countries. They had their own clubs, but still visited our clubs and made friends with us, so that we, as children, all grew up together as friends. The Asian community did not want this and so brought about their own segregation.

What Respect have done is draw together people from different ethnic groups, focussed people on what they can do for Bradford, instead of standing by and letting the main parties do what they want to our city.

Respect has given youth a voice in our area. Many young people have been involved in politics for the first time. It is time for a new kind of politics. I'm sick of hearing the same old excuses from Bradford politicians. Now we have some idealists in here, untainted by the backroom antics that we've suffered since the days of Poulson and T Dan Smith.

This is a change that is long overdue. They cannot achieve much yet, but every new party has to start somewhere.

He is currently listed as an “Independent” councillor and the Labour party apparently believes that he will continue to vote with the party whether or not he is reinstated following the current investigation into his situation

I must say, the Labour party deserve this bloody nose that they are getting off the pro-Islamic party.

The Labour party thought, with their open door policy to immigration, that they would be in power forever due to immigrants traditionally ALWAYS voting Labour.

Along comes the Respect Party though and offers them everything except Shariah law, and they steal the Muslim block vote.

So now, some white people still vote Labour, which as someone pointed out, is a bit like Turkeys voting for Christmas as it was them who opened our borders in an attempt to "Get Whitey" and Gerrymander us. As Longshanks said, "If we can't get them out, we will breed them out". Their experimenthas backfired though and they will now have to do everything they can to hold onto the votes from the community they tried to destroy.

Let's just hope he puts his foot in it again soon and is forced to slink off somewhere else.

By the way George is originally a Greek name but was made popular here by King George the first who was Hannoverian. How British is that?

AntiDrug... I agree with your point that sometimes people use 'racism' as an excuse; just as some criminals use 'human rights laws' for their benefit; just as some people all over the country use do fraudulent insurance claims; just as some people on jobseeker benefits don't actually seek work etc. but that does not mean that all are the same.
As for the word 'racism', just because it was not used does NOT mean that racism did not exist!?!
If you put on those beloved spectacles of yours from Specsavers you will see that you also wrote "The Whites Were NEVER Racist To Anybody" That is what I was referring to.

By the ambiguous nature of the word Terrorism I would say to you that what we see as terrorists someone else sees as freedom fighters. Remember that Saddam and Bin Laden were 'friends of the West' until we had no need for them.
By the way I think you mean Middle East NOT Eastern Block. The unrest may well be there but there are different causes and reasons for that, you can't tar them all as the same.
As for going there, well I have been to a couple of the middle eastern countries and had no problems (just be aware of the laws of the land) and obviously there are some I would not even dream of going to.
I'm British in legal terms (passport) but in my heart I am English, but you can see me as any identity as you wish.
It may not have been an asian who 'discovered' England but it was less likely to have been an Englisman!!!

As for the word 'racism', just because it was not used does NOT mean that racism did not exist!?! If you put on those beloved spectacles of yours from Specsavers you will see that you also wrote "The Whites Were NEVER Racist To Anybody" That is what I was referring to. By the ambiguous nature of the word Terrorism I would say to you that what we see as terrorists someone else sees as freedom fighters. Remember that Saddam and Bin Laden were 'friends of the West' until we had no need for them. By the way I think you mean Middle East NOT Eastern Block. The unrest may well be there but there are different causes and reasons for that, you can't tar them all as the same. As for going there, well I have been to a couple of the middle eastern countries and had no problems (just be aware of the laws of the land) and obviously there are some I would not even dream of going to. I'm British in legal terms (passport) but in my heart I am English, but you can see me as any identity as you wish. It may not have been an asian who 'discovered' England but it was less likely to have been an Englisman!!! c-sense

Galloway is hated by people here because the asians are backing him. I'm guessing if he was disliked by asians then the white folk would greet him with open arms.

Why don't we all give him a chance rather than get heated up about it. He can't be much worse than the corrupt councillors some appear to love.

A very simple comment.

Ian Greenwood has not been responsible for Bradford for 17 years. The issues of the Odeon, Westfield etc should be shared by all of who have served on Council for many years. Short memories indeed.

Remember the likes of Pickles, Eaton, Hopkins. Look where they are now and look at what goes into their bank accounts. Who pays for that.

Several contributors have commented on isolationism. We are definitely a divided city. My wife and I speak after spending well over 30 years teaching Inner City children, who are now being let down and ignored by their own.

Those of us who have been involved in Bradford politics for decades have seen it all before - someday comeday. We shall still be here when Galloway gets back on his bus and drives into the sunset. I hope he will show respect for ALL Bradford residents.

Some people are claiming that the results in these Bradford elections are indicating a shift away from class to one of ethnicity in the decision about which party and candidate to support.

I see that analysis as a gross over-simplification. The vote, particularly against Council Leader Ian Greenwood, despite his 17 years service, is one of rejection of an administration with an appalling record of poor decision making and spending. The City is now far worse both in terms of the social conditions of the populous and in the poor facilities on offer compared with 30-40 years ago.

Also consider that two MP, Kris Hopkins, Keighley & Ilkley and Phil Davies, Shipley, wish to take their districts out of the Bradford Council control to form a new district council totally separate from the city, with its own elected councillors.

That would basically be going back to how things used to be and how many of us at the time wished it to stay.
Greenwood has indeed paid the price, but Labour will be quite pleased even here, I see the other (intrusive voting) as temporary and just an indication of opportunism when things are at a low ebb.

GG does have a track record. A track record of failure, this is his fourth attempt now to be an MP.

Ever wonder why he never lasts more than one term and lost twice in his native Scotland?

well said this town wants to see change and this is a first in its steps. let hope something positive will come from this. before all the hate mongers start criticising, thinking it was down to asian votes for respect, overall they voted a blue eyed white guy. Good luck respect party.

'Do you have better proposals ... ?
tyker2, essentially I agree with you, that Bradford has been left to rot for decades, When I first moved to Bradford/Leeds they were both on their knees - Boar Ln had trees growing out of its fine buildings and the Arcades were falling down.
Then Political control stabilized in Leeds, while that in Bradford was yo-yo-ing. The economy of Leeds took off, investments and jobs flooded in with people oriented policies enacted by Labour, with the Liberals acting as a ginger group.
In Bradford the Tories continued the slash and burn policies that had filled their back pockets, bank accounts and off shore tax avoidance havens in the past.
Council guaranteed Old people's homes were starved of funds then sold into the hands of asset strippers where they, and their vulnerable residents, became yet another commodity to be traded. Bought and sold like a sack of spuds.
‘Council’ housing was let go to rack and ruin - blighting the health and educational prospects of all generations for years to come. The ‘Well to do’ fled the decrepit schools, de-camping to areas where their pals would build brand new schools, libraries, etc at the expense of the much more needy and neglected City centre Victorian legacy.
Bradford needs massive investment. It needs a united positive front, not the petty bickering and mud slinging exhibited in much, but not all, of the contributions in this thread so far.
It needs strong, confident, expert Portfolio holders to make sure that the Executive carries out policy decided by the policy makers - influenced by us. Execs who don’t, or won’t deliver should be shown the door P D Q.
Someone re-badged ‘Rate Payers’ as Customers. But we’re treated like mendicants. Customers hold their cash until they’ve got their purchases. We pay up, then Council employees decide what THEY think we should have. That’s got to stop.

Lobby your Councilors, go to their Surgeries, attend Council Committee meetings - they’re more fun than you think. Attend Bradford’s unique Neighbourhood Forums - there’s one near you soon.
Bradford’s getting more positive publicity on TV and other media than we could hope for in our wildest dreams.
Use it Bradford - use it or loose it!
Let’s - Build a Better Bradford - one we can look at with pride and say ‘We did that.’

Yes, there are also more incidents being reported in The Guardian today.
It's surprising it gets mentioned in a national newspaper first.
The T&A hasn't reported that GG has called for the resignation of Tony Reeve, Chief Exec of Bradford Council either. Or that GG is suing Councillor Arshad Hussein for defamation and that his defamation was made using a 'Council telephone' (texting) and, therefore, involves Bradford City Council in what could become a criminal liable case.

On the same prog - MP Ward was il-liberal in some of his comments about RESPECT, and MP Galloway showed scant respect for MP-W's claims.

@ AntiDrug:

Your posts are hard work to read. Don't you want to be understood? Why put a capital letter at the beginning of every word? Sorry, it just makes you look silly. The overuse of capitols used for whole words doesn't help either. And you might want to consider ordering your posts into paragraphs (as things stand you come across like some ranting, barely-literate loon).

I hope you find these comments helpful and take them in the spirit in which they are intended.

----------------
Mr / Ms farage, it is reasonably clear that you think that you are one of the most important people in :
Your head;
Your house...Your street...and possibly Bradford West.
You genuinely think that MP Galloway has nothing better to do than sit around waiting for you to write to him demanding that he resolve a problem that has foxed Governments for the last half century.
When he doesn’t send you a solution by return of post, it is ‘obviously’ because he is a racist , and threw your email away to encourage you to write to this column with conclusive proof that he is a racist and a political captive of Islam.
That’s ONE explanation – others are available.

Yes, there are also more incidents being reported in The Guardian today.
It's surprising it gets mentioned in a national newspaper first.
The T&A hasn't reported that GG has called for the resignation of Tony Reeve, Chief Exec of Bradford Council either. Or that GG is suing Councillor Arshad Hussein for defamation and that his defamation was made using a 'Council telephone' (texting) and, therefore, involves Bradford City Council in what could become a criminal liable case.

Come on T&A keep up!
Yet another court case where GG is expecting cash because someone's besmirched his good name?
No wonder he's no time to attend parliament.

Reasoned responses happyman.

On the point of David Ward, he is my local MP and recently, within the last 3 weeks, he has handled, dealt with and brought to a conclusion two LOCAL issues I have raised. I found his response time and responses well above average for any correspondence and actions, all this in the lead up to this election. He could have sent a polite mail explaining how busy he was and would get back to me, instead he outlined his thoughts, the steps he'd like to take and his hopeful outcome.

Whilst not campaigning for the lib dems what I will say is happyman is correct, get down to the surgeries and open door days, raise your concerns, make politics and politicians work for you. Instead of us arguing let them argue, that is their job, considered agendas, considered agenda debates and decisions. If they don't know you have an issue but you constantly moan about it, go moan to them, make them work. They cannot possibly be too busy, you are their job.

I think he is more interested in stopping folks spreading lies about him than the money.

Whether you agree with GG's views or not you have to agree that the combined media, political and security establishments of this country and America have not been able to show that he is corrupt or 'in it for the money'. How many other politicians could survive the microscopic analysis of their private and public duties that GG has had to withstand? Would you come out as clean as him? I know I certainly wouldn't. He is making the the politicians and public servants justify their positions to the people who elected them. Good for him -and us!

Well done MPW, you’re carrying on the traditional role of the Liberal Party – taking care of your Community – that’s how you made inroads in areas where the Councillors of the large parties had become complacent.
Then you p^^^^d it all against the wall by selling out to the Class Traitors in ‘The Gang of Four’, and their careerists poodles, including the then Labour MP for Bradford West – Eddie Lyons.

"I am afraid the ordinary citizen will not like to be told that the banks can and do create money.

Reginald McKenna, as Chairman of the Midland Bank, addressing stockholders in 1924.

How much faith do you have in Politicians and Governments to 'change the system'?

"When a government is dependent upon bankers for money, they and not the leaders of the government control the situation, since the hand that gives is above the hand that takes. Money has no motherland; financiers are without patriotism and without decency; their sole object is gain." Napoleon Bonaparte, Emperor of France.

To win at the game you need to know what the rules are. Don't think too hard folks the Real World is stranger than Alison in Wonderland. And once you wake up to who really Governs, then you might -we ALL might- ,collectively, really be able to have an impact on Political change.

"When a government is dependent upon bankers for money, they and not the leaders of the government control the situation, since the hand that gives is above the hand that takes. Money has no motherland; financiers are without patriotism and without decency; their sole object is gain." Napoleon Bonaparte, Emperor of France.

To win at the game you need to know what the rules are. Don't think too hard folks the Real World is stranger than Alison in Wonderland. And once you wake up to who really Governs, then you might -we ALL might- ,collectively, really be able to have an impact on Political change.

Right, I'm off for my dose of 'opium for the masses'. Come on City!, come on City!
"Alison"? Now that IS strange.
'Alison'?, 'Alison'?, who the feck is 'Alison'? Apologies to Alice!

if you are going to quote westfield make sure you know what you are talking about. the completion date, you know that means finish/built/up and running don't you? the completion date was BEFORE the recession hit, so don't blame the economic downturn.
koee.. greenwood wanted the odeon demolished right up till 2 weeks before the elections, someone must have pointed out we actually wanted to keep it. grrenwood gone? best news for bradford ever, this is the guy who refused to vote at meeting when the tories got in. took his bat home and only attended the meetings to get his exes and cuppa's. how is that helping bradford, when items were being voted for that went against the grain, yet because he'd taken his bat home he did nothing to scupper tory plans.

Uncle Drug, just say 'NO'!. Or talk to 'FRANK'. You are a poor advert for all the things you 'appear' to be against. Maybe you could be a bit sort of specific with what you claim is wrong and then be sort of specific about how you think those problems could be resolved?

I thought we were supposed to blame the Jews for everything that was going wrong in the world? That's if we are not blaming Scientists of course or even Politicians. And thank goodness we sorted out those pesky women eh -all them Witches in particular- what would the world have been like if they had gotten a foothold! It's a good job there is 100%, superior, English, heterosexual blood running through your veins Druggy or there would be nobody to keep a look-out for the Gays and Lesbians who are no doubt conspiring to take over the world. Keep up the good work of scapegoating, however, failing to consider that it might actually be YOU that is the 'real problem' with YOUR world may result in your failing to identify the 'root cause' of YOUR problems.

You are a poor advert for all the things you 'appear' to be against. Maybe you could be a bit sort of specific with what you claim is wrong and then be sort of specific about how you think those problems could be resolved? I thought we were supposed to blame the Jews for everything that was going wrong in the world? That's if we are not blaming Scientists of course or even Politicians. And thank goodness we sorted out those pesky women eh -all them Witches in particular- what would the world have been like if they had gotten a foothold! It's a good job there is 100%, superior, English, heterosexual blood running through your veins Druggy or there would be nobody to keep a look-out for the Gays and Lesbians who are no doubt conspiring to take over the world. Keep up the good work of scapegoating, however, failing to consider that it might actually be YOU that is the 'real problem' with YOUR world may result in your failing to identify the 'root cause' of YOUR problems.

So who exactly are you 'referring to'? Do you know? If your not referring to those 'grafters' who worked in the mills. Are you referring to those that run their own businesses? Those who work on the buses? in the Taxi trade? Hospitals? University's? Supermarkets? Funeral Parlours? Estate Agents? Stone Masons? Building contractors? Etc. Etc. Etc. You'll have to tell me cos I don't have a clue which scapegoat group of Muslim people you are referring to. It is just Muslims You are against isn't it? If so, which denomination?, Sunni,
Shia, Sufism, Ahmadiyya, Ibadi, Quranists, Yazdânism, Nation of Islam, or are 'they all the same'?

Forgive me but for someone who claims to wants to promote Englishness/Britishn
ess and all that is good about it -and there is a lot- it seems odd that you find 'free speech' something that should be reported as being unacceptable! Do you understand the meaning of the word 'Hypocrite'?

I am very much living in the present I can assure you Uncle Drug. I am a pretty content chappy but if I wasn't I wouldn't blame 1.5 billion Muslims because I had failed to take control of my own circumstances and turned into a sour old finger pointer.

'Ah' but you will no doubt say you are only blaming the Muslims in Bradford for our predicament. If so, what is the reason for the predicament the whole of Europe and America has found itself in? Those Bradford Muslims sure have a lot to answer for eh? Are you inhaling, ingesting or injecting?

This is the Second Rent We Have Had From An Asian, Who It Has Been A Pleasure To Have Met Them 2, But We Have Had Some Very Bad Experiances aswell, So As We Say There Are Good & Bad In Every Race
I would be pleased if you now agree that the problems of Bradford are not all caused by British born Asian folk, who are just trying to live their lives as best they can, like the rest of us.The Answer to your Question Is NO, The problems are not all Asian, There are other Denominations Who Cause Problems Including Whites,
Not Just In Bradford, But Many Other Towns And Cities
I Think The Answer Is To Intergrate & Lets Get The Whole Communities Together In Harmony
You have told us nothing other than you seem completely unclear as to what you are trying to say. You've just spent a load of time in the most shambolic form of communication I can ever recall experiencing, trying to tell us something we already knew! That there is good and bad in every race, creed, colour, religion, nationality, gender. Why spend half your posts making childish, pathetic digs at other posters only to end up doing a 180 degree change from your original direction? 'Now the Drugs don't work they just make you worse but I know I'll see your face again'
