Brum Says No Mayor

Despite the best efforts of his mate Tom Watson to fix it, Siôn Simon will not become Mayor of Birmingham. Brummies said no to a mayor. Siôn Simon quit Parliament in a bid to become Birmingham’s first mayor. The former Birmingham Erdington MP stood down at the general election to spend more time in the constituency and lobby for the city to adopt an elected mayor system. It has turned out to be yet another error of judgement for Siôn. Don’t be surprised if Tom Watson doesn’t try to fix up his old mate with a peerage.
