A quote from Westfield for us Bradford folk to ponder upon...


I make no comment beyond; "hmmmm?"

In an interview with The Sunday Telegraph, Westfield’s director of development, John Burton, said the company was “ready to spend £1bn on the site”, adding: “We have the balance sheet, the people and the ideas. I hope reality prevails.” 

Sadly the site in question is in Croydon not Bradford.

I've just read your piece in issue 7 of Bradford Howdo? magazine, headed with this quote 'Sometimes I sits and thinks, and sometimes I just sits'

Quite apt really, because you haven't actually ever done anything to help the regeneration in Bradford.

I find the disdain and apathy which oozes through in your piece, along with your derogatory use off the word 'agitators' to describe people who are sick to death of inept politicians and corporations who have destroyed a section of Bradford, deeply offensive.

But you're a councilor aren't you, so we shouldn't expect anything else.

Understand that people who have lived in Bradford are utterly disgusted with you, the councilors and the corporations who have decimated Bradford. And your snide use of descriptive language against people with a valid repulsion at what's happened is a disgrace.

How long has that hole has been there? Why is it taking so long?
Whole cities get rebuilt after the tragedy of war in a fraction of the time it takes to build a bloody shopping center.

You should be ashamed of yourself, but you're not are you? like the council and Westfield you simply don't care.
