In at No.4 is the Yorkshire rose itself, Bradford. It would not be a Top 10 without a smattering of West Yorkshire’s finest taking the top spots, but this year it seems Bradford has unified the vote. Here’s what our contributors had to say:
Bradford, the land of opportunity, if it’s a takeaway or a pound shop you dream of opening.
Want the best deals come to Bradford, buy 1 get 1 free chicken and chips, a stolen PS4 from some Slovakian at Foster Square or some cheap deodorants from the local junkie desperate for his next fix.
Bradford is awash with the kind of people documentary producers dream about, if you want entire families of career criminal scroats with the morals of a paedophilic serial killer in your fly on the wall production.
In this city you will see more flashy cars than in any other cities because there is so much drug crime, it’s almost just part of everyday life. Trust me, this place makes Detroit look nice.
Stand outside Greggs and wonder aloud as to how babies with no teeth manage to eat pasties.
