Donald Trump is no longer welcome in Bradford, according to MP Naz Shah.

Naz Shah: Donald Trump was welcome in Bradford. Now it would only reinforce and condone his divisive, racist and sexist messages.

JUST over 3,500 of my constitutents have signed the e-petition on preventing Donald Trump’s state visit, which amounts to nearly 60 people out of every 1,000 registered voters in Bradford West.​ What we have seen in the past month has been chilling and many of us are asking where the slippery slope really leads.

David Hockney in his home city of Bradford, February 1970

So, just who is the real David Hockney?

There’s a story Christopher Simon Sykes likes to tell about David Hockney. It was the early 1960s and, having just graduated from the Royal College of Art, he moved into a new flat where the bedroom also doubled as his studio. At the end of the small bed, which was squeezed into a corner, was a chest of drawers. “David painted a message rather carefully on the chest of drawers,” says Sykes, who secured unprecedented access to Hockney’s archive, notebooks and paintings to write a two-volume biography of the Bradford-born artist. “It said in large capital letters GET UP AND WORK IMMEDIATELY. As he said: ‘The first thing I saw every morning when I woke up was the sign, and not only did I read the sign but I remembered that I had wasted two hours painting it, so I jumped out of bed’.”
