Labour’s new leader – and the councillor expected to become the new leader of Bradford Council later this month – is David Green, it was confirmed tonight.

Councillor Green beat off competition from Michael Johnson (Tong) to take the helm of the 45-strong Labour group on the authority at their annual meeting. It follows former Council and group leader Ian Greenwood being ousted by Respect in last Thursday’s local elections.

Coun Green has more than 20 years experience on the Council and has represented Wibsey since 2004. He was himself re-elected last week, with a more than doubled majority. Prior to that he represented the old Odsal ward for 13 years.

He was also deputy leader of the group, before losing the position in a tight contest in 2008 to Councillor Imran Hussain, who was unopposed last night. For the past two years Coun Green has been the Council’s executive member in charge of regeneration.

Coun Green told the Telegraph & Argus it was an honour to be selected to lead the group and he hoped to be elected leader of the Council come the authority's annual meeting later this month.

Pity poor Bradford as the ghost in Bolling Hall once said!! If the regeneration of Bradford under his tenure is anything to go by I can't wait to see what will happen as Council leader. A few words of advice, get rid of the ear rings, get a hair cut and most of all...LISTEN to the views the Bradford public under your council, and act accordingly in favour of the majority, rather than the selfish, hidden agenda, cloak and dagger leadership of your predecessor. Deliver on this and restore some belief in our proud city and you might just gain some respect in the process...!!

I don't want to get involved in your argument with others but i find it a bit hard to swallow that you run 2 big firms with over a million pounds turn over each, come on now that sounds just a little tiny exaggerated. :-)

Congratulations David Green on becoming the new Labour leader of Bradford Council. I would like to say that I had help from Councillor Green when I lived in Wibsey a few years ago and he was very helpful and quickly solved a problem in the community. I hope Councillor Green will be able to move forward in his new position and changes will soon be brought about sooner rather than later.

Looks like another Nero to fiddle whilst Bradford burns.
Only yesterday he was dismissing a report into the state of Bradford's housing because he didn't like the answer. I'm afraid the election of another yes man is only going to increase Respect's popularity if they carry on ignoring the wishes of the electorate.

The article says he's got 20 years council experience, but he's only been a councillor for 8 years. I suppose this means we've got somebody else who's come up through the unions and will be happy to carry on subsidising them with our council tax?

It says he represented the old Odsal ward for another 13 years before that, hence the 'over 20 years experience' line.

It's a bit difficult for everyone to blame him for the current state of Bradford when he was only Regen portfolio holder from 2010-2012 (and I think 1997-99), when the Hole and the Odeon were issues created in the main over the last decade (Hole created, Odeon a situation made worse) under the Tory/Lib Dem Council.

His long-standing position has been that he supports retaining as much of the Odeon as possible. That has never changed.

Good point, I didn't read the story properly!

I'd agree that it's a bit unfair to blame the city centre debacle on Green, but what annoys me is his lack of acknowledgement of any problems. Most of his statements always seem to be him reading out a press release from somebody else; especially in the lead-up to City Park opening he seemed to believe that nobody could think it was anything other the Eighth Wonder.

Apart from Westfield and the Odeon I hope he tackles the abysmal state of the city centre nightlife. There seems to be a total lack of awareness and concern by the city's rulers about the death of the city centre nightlife. There also appears to be no serious strategy to address the problems. I've taken visitors out for a night in the city centre but frankly it has been a bit of an embarrassment walking around the deserted streets.

Green will be a disaster. True he's only had the Regeneration portfolio for two years, but they have been two wasted years. He has failed get a grip of his Department whilst the city centre rots away. When it came to the LDF (for which he must take responsibility) he just took dictation from greenfield hungry developers. If he cared about Bradford the LDF would have concentrated on curing the dereliction. Has this guy ever visited Detroit?

WikiP tells us:
Lynching is an extrajudicial execution carried out by a mob ... in order to punish an alleged transgressor, or to intimidate, control, or otherwise manipulate a population of people. It is related to other means of social control that arise in communities.
Lynchings have been more frequent in times of social and economic tension, and have often been the means used by the politically dominant population to oppress social challengers.

Since your jaw is locked, Lockjaw, it's obvious which orifice you are talking your nonsense out of!
It's the T&A who insists that photos are included. Tho' it does help people who prefer to read comics, like you, cope with all those words.
What are YOU doing for Bradford, L J, besides moaning and knocking?

Green won't change and you can't because you are still an idiot.

Yes, I am an Idiot, which is several rungs up from being a cretin.
And I'm Happy. And I think that our great City is worth talking up, not knocking.
Green Leader is here for at least another 3 or 4 years, let's help him so he can help us, and we can all work together for a Better Bradford.
Even you can't gain say that, flogem.
