When I started tweeting from Bradford, the BBC actually demanded to know what I was doing there!
I told them I was here to speak to real people in a brilliant country I know called the "rest of the UK."
And the truths of these people largely unrepresented in the press and in Parliament.
What I found were ghettoized communities divided by race or religion. I heard stories of optimism, but I also realized that this once proud industrial hub now has one leading "business": Drugs.
