And both Tower Hamlets & Chelsea are in London but they certainly don't have the same residents. :grin:

Bradford is a nice place to visit. Some amazing architecture!

There is Oy. There's also a Betty's in Ilkley.  They're worth a visit just for the Fat Rascals. 😊

I would assume and hope all that live there.

Can somebody explain this "diversity" thing. There seems to be very little of what I thought diversity is in that picture.

We live in a time when intelligent people are silenced so that stupid people won't be offended

Alex

No women either ! mind they're not allowed to vote :cool:

I'm not sure it's Bradford though. I tried to find Carr street in Bradford on Google maps so I could see if street view had spotted any diversity ( I drove through once years back en route to a customer somewhere near there and didn't so wasn't hopeful) but none of the intersections looked like that. It may be some other street name though as it isn't over clear.

I don't know if it's Bradford or not, my only experience was in Blackburn a few years ago. My friend and I had been to Boundary Mill near Chorley and I can't remember where we were heading, but I got lost on outskirts of Blackburn and drove through an obviously 'no go area' for two white women  :grin: :grin: We locked the doors as I tried to find my way out of it, a bit scary tbh - not scary exactly, but they were intimidating, it may have been the white frocks of course. :grin: :grin: :grin:
