The vast majority of those who've landed in Bradford are Muslim Brian , thats a reality ... Are you saying that the "goodies" that come with immigrants in Bradford begin and end with taxi drivers Brian because as much as I ask your not showing me any other benefits or "goodies" they bring

No.

Here's a bit from the Bradford City Council website:

Economy size

Bradford has a big economy worth over £9.5bn, the eighth largest in England and the third largest in the Yorkshire region after Leeds and Sheffield.

Bradford’s economy is growing fast. GVA increased by 3.7% between 2014 and 2015, outpacing national growth of 2.6% and Leeds City Region growth of 3.4%.

The Bradford economy is set to grow by around 25% over the next decade and will contribute 15.4% of the total growth within the Leeds City Region to 2020.

Businesses and jobs

There are 17,620 businesses employing 198,600 people in Bradford District. Bradford accounts for 15% of the total employment in the Leeds City Region.

The number of businesses has increased significantly in the last three years rising from 15,145 in 2013 to 17,620 in 2016. This was an increase of 16% that was higher than Leeds City Region and UK.

A number of major companies have their headquarters in the district including Morrisons, Provident Financial, Yorkshire Building Society and Hallmark Cards. This includes two FTSE 100 companies, more than any other city in the Northern Powerhouse.

Bradford based companies employ over 250,000 people across the UK with a combined turnover of more than £30 billion.

There are 1,200 manufacturing businesses in Bradford (manufacturing, energy and utilities) employing 25,000 people in the district accounting for 13% of all employees compared to 8.3% in Great Britain as a whole.

Bradford has the 4th highest number of manufacturing jobs of any city in the UK after London, Birmingham and Leeds.

Bradford’s thriving digital sector is a key component of our ‘Producer City’ economy with 700 businesses employing 4,500 people.

Bradford has a powerful culture of entrepreneurship. 33,400 people in the district are self-employed. Self employment has increased by 23.2% since 2010 compared with a UK rise of 18.1%.

A recent survey of FedEx customers found that Bradford SME businesses had the highest rate of international trading in the UK with 86% of Bradford companies using FedEx services trading internationally.


I don't know what you count as "goodies", Antony, but that picture looks quite rosy, to me. So, assuming the figure of 25% Muslims is roughly correct, either the 75% is carrying the Muslims, or the Muslims are contributing their share.

Unless Bradford council has found the Golden Goose, it seems highly improbable that an economic performance on the scale the council recognises could be achieved by only 75% of its population.

Are you quite sure you're setting the same bar for the Muslims as for everyone else? On the face of it, it doesn't quite look like that.

Never mind what Bradford Council say ... I've asked specifically for you to tell of the "goodies" Muslims bring to Bradford and you up to press have produced a lot of words with zero content of what I asked for ... Try again Brian , you're the one championing them remember ... As for Bradford do note that Morrisons is Bradford based and employs nationally about 130.000 folk which accounts for much of some of your last totally irrelevant post ... Your better than this Brian

Bradford born and raised Afzal Khan seems to have done pretty well for himself and brought lots of employment to the area. He can't run that size of business on his own and has vacancies advertised for anyone prepared to get off their backside.

Thats 1 of Brians "goodies" only 130.000 left

You missed this bit; "and brought lots of employment to the area" and "has vacancies advertised for anyone prepared to get off their backside". Think how many other local businesses benefit from Khan's employees spending money, not to mention local suppliers to the business itself.

I'm sure there will be plenty of other businesses in Bradford run by immigrants or descendants of. Who runs all those curry takeaway places and restaurants Brits love to frequent?

Suck it up, Antony, you've had your answer! I've tried vary hard to swerve (politely) round your obvious ethnic and religious prejudices in pursuit of "championing" truth. I'm not playing your juvenile "prove it to me games". Pick your own scabs, if you must!

Thats fine Brian ... Im certainly not trying to play juvenile games or show any ethnic/religous prejudices only attempting to see what "goodies" Muslim migrants have brought to Bradford as you seemed to be fairly well up on the subject ... I can only presume the "goodies" you talk of aint that good ... Maybe others can show what youve failed to provide ... Without proof its purely speculation is it not

You have your proof, Antony, but you don't see it. I don't know what you deem a "goody", and you don't say, so I presented you with a picture of a reasonably thriving city, as portrayed by its council.

You then want the specific contribution of its 25% Muslim population (and no others) dissected out from those figures.

If. you're that interested, and want to pick out the Muslim contribution alone, ask the council, or ask around the local Mosques or Muslim business associations. I'm not bothered.

My point remains that they must be contributing to that prosperity (which I would rate a goody), because that degree of prosperity could not realistically be generated by the other 75% alone while supporting 25% dead wood - could it?

Even if you are right in attributing the whole of Morrison's profits to Bradford alone (which I doubt) as being the main source of its wealth, do Morrisons not employ some of those Muslims? If they do, do they not make their contribution to Morrisons profits as employees? Why do the Muslims alone have to be separately accounted for out of a population of 500,000 or so? Why do you not want separate accounts for the other religions, and no religion? Why not for ethnic groups as well? What on earth would be the point?

Apologies ... i presumed as you'd jumped into the discussion with your "goodies" claim regarding migrants and given we were discussing Bradford you knew what "goodies" that those who've settled there since WW2 have given ... from your own evidence since WW2 Muslims have absolutely made up massively the majority of settlers in the city , I dont understand why your suggesting its wrong to ask what benefit they have been on the city , indeed if any ... Up to press youve provided nothing ... If you cant or dont want to provide relevant info thats fine but dont try the old sly 'racist' dig at me when cornered as some escape route ... Its really simple Brian , Muslims account massively in Bradford for migrant settlers so I simply ask what benefits do we receive from having them enrich such a city ???

... from your own evidence since WW2 Muslims have absolutely made up massively the majority of settlers in the city....

The Muslim population of Bradford is only 24.7% where the Christian population is 45.9% and those with 'no religion' at 20,7%, so you should be asking what Bradford has benefited from that 66.6%. That's where the 'massive majority' is......so what have they contributed to the city?

Seems Bradford got awarded Curry Capital of Britain six years in a row.

Bradford has a well earned reputation for some of the finest Asian food in the UK and we are proud to retain our title once again. With over 200 Asian restaurants for you to choose from there really is something for everyone.

Damn those pesky Brits benefiting from foods they love so much supplied by Asian migrants enriching Britains Curry Capital. Ban curry!!

Because you don't ask the same of others (not even of other migrants), so you are selecting one part of a population for special investigation. That creates a "special" barrier that Muslims alone have to leap.

I'm just puzzled that, even without the obvious religious (not racist, Muslims are of many races) prejudice that implies, you ask me (though goodness knows why) to give you evidence to feed your prejudice.

The more so, because you appear to think you already know the answer. If you don't, why would you ask the question?

It seems your underlying presumption is that Bradford Muslims alone don't pull their economic weight. Otherwise why ask?

But, that you triumphantly continue to press me for an answer, also indicates that you haven't the evidence for your own presumption because, if you did, I assume you'd equally triumphantly present it.

So instead of effectively telling me to "put up or shut up", I say the same to you. Prove your point: it's your contention.

When struggling you can always guarantee the old favourite will be pushed out , suggestions of racism and islamaphobia ... Before you entered the discussion we were talking about Bradford and if you hadn't noticed from far away in leafy East Sussex modern Bradford immigrants since ww2 are massively Muslim ... Now I don't understand why it's wrong for me to ask you what "goodies" (your words) those Muslims have brought to Bradford , if they were massively Polish would it be racist of me to say Poles ??? No of course not ... I presume you cant really live up to your original "goodies" claim and that's fine but please don't start with the usual suggestions of this that and t'other

antony1969 - 2019-01-17 6:36 PM...………….. I dont understand why your suggesting its wrong to ask what benefit they have been on the city , indeed if any ... .................

Because you don't ask the same of others (not even of other migrants), so you are selecting one part of a population for special investigation. That creates a "special" barrier that Muslims alone have to leap.

I'm just puzzled that, even without the obvious religious (not racist, Muslims are of many races) prejudice that implies, you ask me (though goodness knows why) to give you evidence to feed your prejudice.

The more so, because you appear to think you already know the answer. If you don't, why would you ask the question?

It seems your underlying presumption is that Bradford Muslims alone don't pull their economic weight. Otherwise why ask?

But, that you triumphantly continue to press me for an answer, also indicates that you haven't the evidence for your own presumption because, if you did, I assume you'd equally triumphantly present it.

So instead of effectively telling me to "put up or shut up", I say the same to you. Prove your point: it's your contention.


When struggling you can always guarantee the old favourite will be pushed out , suggestions of racism and islamaphobia ... Before you entered the discussion we were talking about Bradford and if you hadn't noticed from far away in leafy East Sussex modern Bradford immigrants since ww2 are massively Muslim ... Now I don't understand why it's wrong for me to ask you what "goodies" (your words) those Muslims have brought to Bradford , if they were massively Polish would it be racist of me to say Poles ??? No of course not ... I presume you cant really live up to your original "goodies" claim and that's fine but please don't start with the usual suggestions of this that and t'other

Muslim population of Bradford is shown as 24.7%......so what does the overwhelming 75.3% (massive to use your terminology) contribute to Bradford? Might be easier if you could start quoting some examples and from such a massive majority, it shouldn't prove too difficult but as yet you've not given one. What is the input of the majority?

You have your proof, Antony, but you don't see it. I don't know what you deem a "goody", and you don't say, so I presented you with a picture of a reasonably thriving city, as portrayed by its council.

You then want the specific contribution of its 25% Muslim population (and no others) dissected out from those figures.

If. you're that interested, and want to pick out the Muslim contribution alone, ask the council, or ask around the local Mosques or Muslim business associations. I'm not bothered.

My point remains that they must be contributing to that prosperity (which I would rate a goody), because that degree of prosperity could not realistically be generated by the other 75% alone while supporting 25% dead wood - could it?

Even if you are right in attributing the whole of Morrison's profits to Bradford alone (which I doubt) as being the main source of its wealth, do Morrisons not employ some of those Muslims? If they do, do they not make their contribution to Morrisons profits as employees? Why do the Muslims alone have to be separately accounted for out of a population of 500,000 or so? Why do you not want separate accounts for the other religions, and no religion? Why not for ethnic groups as well? What on earth would be the point?


... from your own evidence since WW2 Muslims have absolutely made up massively the majority of settlers in the city....

The Muslim population of Bradford is only 24.7% where the Christian population is 45.9% and those with 'no religion' at 20,7%, so you should be asking what Bradford has benefited from that 66.6%. That's where the 'massive majority' is......so what have they contributed to the city?

Seems Bradford got awarded Curry Capital of Britain six years in a row.

Bradford has a well earned reputation for some of the finest Asian food in the UK and we are proud to retain our title once again. With over 200 Asian restaurants for you to choose from there really is something for everyone.

Damn those pesky Brits benefiting from foods they love so much supplied by Asian migrants enriching Britains Curry Capital. Ban curry!!

https://www.visitbradford.com/curry-capital.aspx


Dont those "Asian restaurants" serve other "Asians" ... Banned from eating out and spending their hard earned Bradford pennies are they ??? ... Silly boy

I imagine as with any business they serve the paying customer irrespective of who they are or where from. That what they're there for....to make money otherwise they wouldn't be in business very long.


Exactly so maybe now you can stop being silly saying "pesky Brits"

You don't do irony very well do you......snowflake?

Not racism or Islamophobia, just prejudice - discrimination, if you find it more digestible. It is much the same thing - just the difference between cause and effect.

Bradford, yes, which is why I provided the history and Bradford council pieces. Bradford, see?

I'll wager there are more trees in the north of England than the south, but sadly it is also winter in the south, so not leafy. Hadn't you realised?

The post war influx was apparent from the history piece I linked to.

That you don't understand why singling out Muslims for special consideration is unreasonable is obvious. I tried to explain, but to no avail - but I'll give it another bash.

You can't see the bias, but were you to make the same demand in respect of Poles, Italians, French, German or any other, the bias would be the same, only the target would change. Think Hitler and the Jews - he did much the same initially. Singled them out for special attention, made them the scapegoats for every social ill - and then look what happened. Nasty outcome.

My point about the goodies is that when they result, they result from the combined efforts of the entire working population, from each according to their ability.

But, why would one pick out one religious group in isolation, and then demand a balance sheet for their inputs to Bradford from a stranger on a motorhome forum who lives over 200 miles away? It is a very odd demand to make when you are far better placed, from merely 10 miles away, to do so for yourself. Can you explain why you did that?

Well little snowflake Khans was actually a very good example as i tried explaining to you but it obviously hasn't sunk in yet. I thought you ran some kind of "business"......or have you been pretending as you often do? If you have a business you will (i assume) employ or sub-contract X number of people. Those people get paid a wage (or should do). They spend money in the locality in a variety of other businesses....shops, pubs, cafes, etc. You would also need to purchase materials from various builders merchants.

All the above applies to Khan except he's running a sizeable business so will have way more employees than you....there are 27 vacancies currently advertised, mostly skilled and some requiring high qualification, but that's in addition to however many he's already employing. He will be purchasing very expensive materials as they work at 'high end' body modification so once again, that's a huge amount of expenditure some of which will be sourced within the local economy via small specialist suppliers. So lots of that money is going back into the economy of Bradford via Khan himself but also his employees. Khan could have built his business elsewhere....you know, a bit like that vacuum cleaner bloke Dyson whose chose to build his electric car in Singapore because they signed FTA's with the EU which Dyson wants, and UK is likely to lose. But Khan didn't move out of Bradford....he built his business there.

Quite what your obsession is over the Muslim population of Bradford is about i don't know other than your well known dislike of them (you haven't singled out any other minority), but that isn't showing how you believe Bradford has not benefited from their presence. You need to come up with something far more substantial than a dislike of them. And remember, they make up just 24.7% of Bradfords population.......so exactly what has that massive 75.3% given to Bradford? Surely you must have something......even if it's just a couple of self employed roofers?!!
