All credit is due to Bradford Council for the way they have responded to George Galloway’s PR tirade, and the subsequent interest in their policy towards visitors. Following up this post, here is their email (received last week) which is clear enough:
You can almost hear the poor sods swearing under their breath at the aggravation they have had thanks to George’s stunt.
And I see from Facebook, some Israelis duly turned up at Bradford, complete with flag, tested the water and found a hospitable welcome.
Well done, Bradford!
[On the down side, note the daft standard email disclaimer in the last two lines. To follow that, if a family wanted to visit Bradford, each member would need to do his own email inquiry and keep it secret from everyone else!]
