The perils of attending Bradford University

The perils of attending Bradford University

You may just conceivably end up like Merhan Karimi Nasseri aka “Sir Alfred Merhan”, the man who’s been living in Charles De Galle airport since 1988 thanks to bureaucratic incompetence, hard-faced immigration swines, and alas now his own mental decline. (His tale inspired the latest Spielberg/Hanks/Zeta-Jones movie The Terminal)

It turns out that he attended Bradford University – my alma mater – back in the 1970s. So I think I’d best avoid any French airports for a while…
