Bradford stuff

A couple of news stories have been circling about Bradford, so I might as well comment on them.
Firstly, Bradford lost the 2008 European Capital of Culture bid, by not making it to the shortlist of Liverpool, Newcastle, Birmingham, Cardiff, Oxford and Bristol. It didn’t have much of a chance to be honest. Interestingly the website is still up and running and the general attitude from the organisers is ‘so what?’.
And secondly, preliminary talks between the University of Bradford (where I am) and Bradford College, the sixth-form college next door, suggest a merger between the two is now very likely. Neither have issued any public press releases, but the information is on the intranet for students and staff.
