One for you here Roy one
I was born in Birmingham in the early 70's and I lived there up until 1981 when my parents and I moved to Ireland.  We used to live in Wylde Green but moved to Alum Rock in the mid 70's until we left for Ireland in 81.  I was only a kid back then but I remember that the area was starting to change.  We used to live on Alderson Road in Alum Rock.  I hear Alum Rock is a rough place now, but I'd like to go back and show my wife where I grew up.
Is it safe to walk there during the day?  I can imagine it's not safe at night anymore.
Was it a vision, or a waking dream?

This nothing more nor less than a case of TWO HYPER EXTREMISTS / LIARS:

A RANK STUPID YANK

An American terrorism commentator has apologised for describing Birmingham as a "Muslim-only city" where non-Muslims "don't go" during a Fox News interview.

Mr Emerson, who founded a group called The Investigative Project on Terrorism, was giving his perspective on the terror attacks in France to Fox presenter Jeanine Pirro.

He later issued an apology for his "terrible error".

and,

THE PC WIMP OF THE YEAR

Birmingham City Councillor James McKay said: "We are amazingly diverse, and that's one of the things that makes us brilliant

This from council that has over 20 schools where NOBODY speaks English as first language nor can most pupils communicate with each other.

He has failed to apologise

I visit a club in Adderley Rd. twice a week,have done for the past 30 years,it's no different to other parts of Birmingham with a high proportion of ethnic races i.e. Pakistanis.Poles,West Indians,East Indians,Irish etc. Without a doubt Birmingham is a very Cosmopolitan place.

Are we going off topic. Its about NO GO Zones I had a friend who was Indian lived at the top of Alum Rock. He once told me he had to move because he and his family didn't feel safe.

There have always been dodgy areas in Birmingham, and I think it's got worse over time, but there's still enough in the rest of the city to take our minds off it. O0     
There's no B/S on Planet Malc.

There Is no doubt that there are SOME areas of Brum that I would be very weary to walk or even drive through but, this guy,  was saying that the WHOLE of Birmingham was a no go zone for non Muslims and not just certain areas......
   There are Cities and Towns all over the world with "dodgy" areas that could be called no go zones for all types of reasons  and I'm sure America has more than Its' fair share but to brand Birmingham as a TOTAL no go zone Is complete [censored]****s.........

Two years ago, on boxing day, my husband dropped his dentures on the bathroom floor and they broke in half. He had just come out of hospital after a major operation, he was devastated. Said he couldn't face anyone and there was no way he could eat. I went on the internet and contacted an Asian gentleman who said he was prepared to open his establishment to repair them. This was on The Coventry Road at Small Heath, we got there and were told it would take an hour. So we went across the road to a coffee house, we truly were the only white people in the area, we had no animosity shown towards us, I think some people were intrigued as to why we were there but am eternally grateful  that they helped us in our hour of need.

Are you saying that the many hundreds of white people that still live in the Alum Rock - Saltley area remain behind locked doors at night and pretend that they are not there?
