Worcester on verge of being twinned with Gaza

The Daily Telegraph has the report:

"The English city, famous as the birthplace of composer Sir Edward Elgar, is on the verge of becoming the first in the UK to be twinned with with Gaza City. The council's Twinning Association is now to consider an application which could be passed in the next few months. An amended motion put forward by Cllr Alan Amos was strongly passed at a passionate council meeting on Tuesday night with just six councillors opposing the move out of 35 voters."

The idea appears to be being pushed by Labour councillor Alan Amos but the council is Tory-led.
