I don't, you probably couldn't even find Bradford or where I live on a map, its just once of the few cities you heard in the media.
Why would I want to go there? I've been to York and Leeds, I've spent a lot of time in Northumberland very close to the Scottish border, in all the time I've spent in that area I've never felt any need to go. But given you appear to be hurt by my comment about Bradford, why don't you tell us of its cultural treasures, its thriving theatre scene, its great store of paintings and sculptures; this should be a fantastic test case to compare London to a regional English city. After all, you claim that the average English regional city is far more culturally disposed than London
By the way, most English people have never even been to Scotland. Most English people have never been to Oxford or Cambridge or Bristol (all of which I loved visiting). Most have never been to Cornwall. Given your little England mindset, I would be surprised if you are any different.
I note also you are avoiding the question of where you live. Are you embarrassed?
London has a culture of its own, so to speak. I'd describe it as quite different to the rest of the UK, especially outside of South England.
You seem to be confused. Culture, as in the values, language and solidarity between a particular ethnic group, and culture as in cultural activities and assets such as theatre, artifacts, books and newspapers, paintings, musical performances, etc are not the same thing.
Your position on this obviously is a product of your xenophobia and a desperate need to denigrate London on the basis of its immigrant population. The presence of immigrants does not lessen the cultural import of the treasures of the British Museum, or the collection of the Tate, or the riches stored in the libraries of Middle and Inner Temple.
A woman walking down the street in a burka has no actual bearing on the cultural value of London as found in its museums, galleries, theatres, libraries, archives, live music venues, opera houses, universities etc
