"In these times of uncertainty and political turmoil, it is easy to feel everything is out of control. Taking back control means ensuring our politicians are motivated only by securing the best outcome for the country and not by other agendas."
- Vick, Bradford Take Back Control
Take Back Control Bradford will take place on the 6th of May at the
St Peters House
1 Forster Square,
Bradford BD1 4TY

“Bradford is renowned for our inclusivity and multiculturalism. A whole host of different communities live and work together mainly in harmony. Sadly, some division has arisen due to a fall in living standards in recent years which some have linked to immigration as perpetuated by the right to deflect from the impact of austerity.”
"There are some socio-economic problems in Bradford and our public services are under severe pressure. The answer in my view, is to invest in Bradford rather than to blame sections of the community. We need more schools, hospitals and social care to meet demand, not less people."
