This newspaper has long held the view that all schools should be secular, and a new report published yesterday suggesting that faith schools can encourage social and economic segregation certainly does nothing to alter that view.

It has long been the contention of the Telegraph & Argus that house developers should be doing much more to utilise existing plots of land rather than attempting to build on green fields – that is the key tenet of our Save Our Green Spaces campaign.

As the Telegraph & Argus has previously said, Education Secretary Michael Gove’s recent comments on the standard of education in Bradford – he described it as “appalling” – are at best unhelpful and at worst risk demoralising the district’s schools, teachers and pupils even further.

The solicitor of disgraced pilot Irfan Faiz, who was prepared to fly a plane while three times the legal drink limit, has revealed that plans to appeal against the nine month jail sentence his client was given yesterday because he believes it was ‘excessive’.

The news, exclusively revealed in the Telegraph & Argus today, that Westfield will finally begin preparatory work on the Broadway site on Monday must be warmly welcomed by all who care about the future of Bradford city centre.

It is understandable that Councillor Ralph Berry would want to defend Bradford’s performance in the education league tables, even in the face of the district’s schools not having an enviable record for many years.

It seems inconceivable that the family of a young boy who was brutally raped by a convicted murderer out of prison on licence are still fighting for a full report into the horrifying incident to be made public.

There is no doubt that the true responsibility for the death of Hamzah Khan rests with one person, his mother, Amanda Hutton, and no amount of reports and political wrangling will ever change that. That is not to say, though, that there were not failings in the child protection system which meant that warning signs were not picked up to prevent the abuse which eventually led to his death.
8:48am Wednesday 13th November 2013
The comment made in the House of Commons by Michael Gove that education standards in Bradford are appalling is not only highly insulting to the hard-working education professionals in the district, it is also extremely unhelpful and counter-productive.

The fact that there has been a rethink over the target of the number of homes to be built in the Bradford district is welcome and we are delighted that Bradford Council has listened to the Telegraph & Argus’ Save Our Green Spaces campaign as well as many other people in the district who have always felt that housebuilding targets were far too high.

It will be difficult for most readers of the Telegraph & Argus to even try to comprehend the morality of those who would steal stone paving flags from the garden of a hospice for terminally ill people.

Britain’s welfare state is quite rightly the envy of the world and was designed to create a society where the vulnerable and less able are protected and to cushion the blow of joblessness at times of economic downturn.

There can be few things more annoying than the banshee-like wail of a domestic burglar alarm going off in the early hours of the morning. But if that alarm helps to protect a property or person from attack, then most of us will feel the disruption to our sleep has been worth it.

The controversial household waste disposal permit scheme introduced across Bradford and district in July this year has been beset with problems, not least the lack of consultation before it was brought in.

The decision to call in West Yorkshire police detectives to investigate whether or not there has been any criminal activity involved in the financial failings at Kings Science Academy in Bradford has to be welcomed.

It is really difficult to fathom the comments of Councillor Val Slater, Bradford Council’s executive member for transport, when she complains about new Government legislation which would force authorities who want to increase Council Tax by more than two per cent to hold a referendum.

Bradford has a long and troubled history with the issue of air pollution. In the middle of the nineteenth century it was regarded as one of the smokiest places in Britain, with row upon row of mill and factory chimneys churning out soot and a dreadful toll of deaths from chest diseases.
9:09am Tuesday 29th October 2013
Few people can be surprised that Bradford Council is having to begin to eat into front-line services in its efforts to reduce its spending in the next two years. There can be little doubt, either, that the level of cuts and the speed at which they are being imposed will lead to considerable pain.

Despite a large number of police initiatives and operations to both prevent the distribution of drugs in our communities and bring those responsible for dealing in this deadly trade to justice, the problem does not seem to be going away.

A new survey claiming Bradford folk have the lowest quality of life of any other major city in the UK is obviously a cause for concern, but as anybody who lives here knows, it does not tell the full story.

The reported behaviour of some representatives of the national press in their desperate efforts to try to track down old pictures of MP Gloria de Piero once again highlights the clear distinction that must be made between national and local newspapers.
8:36am Thursday 17th October 2013
Despite the running of education services being returned to the local authority fold in 2011, levels of achievement in Bradford schools are likely to be a cause for serious concern for many years to come.
