THREE weeks ago my family took me on a shopping trip to Leeds. I am aged 81, and I was stunned as we approached Leeds station to see the size of the city as it is today.
We went round dozens of shops and everywhere was thriving.
I had read that Bradford would not be having a big screen for the World Cup, but Leeds would be showing the England matches.
This attitude of Bradford Council just illustrates how Bradford has become so run- down.
I remember in the 1950s going into town on a Saturday morning shopping. It was great and I felt proud to be growing up there. Now my heart bleeds to see the state of it and I feel like crying.

I DON’T object to a game or two of football on TV, but I honestly do not think that everybody likes the game enough to have our much-loved regular programmes being moved away from their usual slots or ditched altogether, just so that football can be shoved down our throats ad nauseam.
