What Exactly Does Bradford Have To Offer Israeli Tourists?

Our dear old friend George Galloway said this:

He wants all Israeli products and even Israelis out of Bradford.

So I started wondering, what exactly would Israelis do in Bradford anyway. And then someone posted on the “Tried and tested great things to do with kids in Israel” group that the Bradford Council lets you order tourist brochures and they claim they will ship them. For Free.

So I ordered a full set. Perhaps you’d like to as well. Here is the link to the website.

You’ll be very pleased to see that the country choice does include Israel.

Bradford brochure Israel still on the list

I can’t wait for my brochures to arrive!

    Saltaire is probably the only thing worthwhile there. For Victorian buffs, it’s quite something. Bradford itself leaves much to be desired (and that’s an understatement; a lot of Galloway’s particular constituents (and postal-voters) roam the streets. Wink-wink).

      Bradford Cathedral, National Media museum, Alhambra, St Georges Hall, Little Germany, do you want me to go on ?

        “National Media Museum”

        Aha! Figures. They deserve each other.

    It’s not Bradford that should be paying, it’s that self-absorbed wanker AKA The Cat

  • Galloway supports apartheid

    Why not make Bradford a Galloway free zone?

    • AlexC

      It pretty much is according to his constituents

    SarahAB from Harry’s Place put the question to him on Twitter whether the Israeli Raed Saleh would be welcome in Bradford, George said yes so it would appear that only certain Israelis are not welcome.

    • CableLegend

      That statement pretty much confirms what many have long suspected.

  • ruth rosenstock

    you know, at some point you just have to laugh. specifically, I am laughing at those people who angrily claim that they can be “anti-Israel” and “pro-Jewish.” (or those equally irritating concern trolls who declare that their love for Israel is WHY they think everything Israel does is wrong.)

    it’s pretty clear now that if you are anti-Israel, you’re anti-Semitic. if nothing else, this latest Gaza conflict has shown that.

      It sure flushed the cockroaches out of the woodwork.

      After the Holocaust I do not think it is funny, anyone who wants to boycott and isolate Israel should be killed if you ask me

    The main attractions of the English countryside are the mansions and castles of the aristocracy, with their artworks, architecture and landscaping. Since they happen to be outside the cities, a tour can skip Bradford and no one will miss it.

    As for Galloway, only the attention of the media keeps the career of this nebbish on life support.

  • CableLegend

    Galloway is one of the biggest POS on the planet & evidently is oblivious to the fact that he is used as a propaganda stooge by the enemies of Israel & Western civilization as a whole.

    • dee

      C.L, Galloway is definitely not oblivious that he is used as a propaganda stooge, he is more than willing to be a part of any propaganda against Israel, he gets off on it, but then what do you expect of someone who once told Saddam Hussein ” sir,I salute your courage” etc

      • CableLegend

        In that case he is even worse of a person, if that’s even possible.

  • CableLegend

    Just saw the fighting started back up again; stay safe everyone.

    I can confirm. Being from Northern England that Bradford is a total shithole.

    As for Galloway….as a young man I admired him for his views on social democracy but as my niavety shrunk with age I came to realise the utter hypocrisy of the man. Hes a political chameleon who changes his colours to suite his audience, not in a nuanced way but in a full frontal assault on the senses.

    He’s been on record as saying that the Tiannemen square record never took place, he supported the invasion of Afghanistan…..by the soviets, and describes the collapse of the USSR as one of his darkest days, and uses cute little euphemisms to describe almost any middle eastern dictator.

    He has been voted out of every constituency as soon as his constituents realise what poor representative they’ve elected. Even Muslims aren’t that stupid……

    Despite reports that he has converted to Shia Islam (verified by Jemima khan? Who was at the confirmation ceremony) he refuses now to discuss his religion.But as a previous Roman Catholic this was continuously a topic of discussion. He is afraid that the white working class voter will desert him as well a sunni Pakistanis, who have also attacked his stance on supporting the Assad regime.

    My guess is he will loose his Bradford seat at the next general election and turn up elsewhere, possible returning to some decrepit part of East London.

    • BingoBob

      Soreheed, what part of Northern England? My guess is that whatever part it also has a few shitholes. Yes Bradford also has a few but there again it also has some great places too !! I guess it all depends if your glass is half empty or half full !!

    Here’s a little about Bradford from Wikipedia

    The ONS Regional Trends report, published in June 2009, showed that some
    parts of Bradford suffer from the highest levels of deprivation in the
    country, while other areas of Bradford are some of the least deprived in
    the country ] Infant mortality is double the national average, and life expectancy is slightly lower than in other parts of the A 2012 survey claimed that residents of Bradford had more sex than any other city in the UK

    Another M.P. from that area is David Ward must be something in the water

  • Travis

    It is a dreary “mill and mosque” town. George Galloway is a 21st century version of William Joyce aka “Lord Haw-Haw”.

  • AlexC

    And David Ward MP has doubled down, says Galloway doesn’t go far enough, ban should be UK wide, wanker

  • mzk1_1

    As I recall, in Al Capp’s Li’l Abner, the comic strip’s hero would do anything to make sure his Congressman was re-elected – so as to keep him out of town. Is Bradford the Dogpatch of the UK?
