Labour picks Liam Byrne as its candidate for West Midlands mayor

Labour has chosen MP Liam Byrne to be its candidate in May’s mayoral elections in West Midlands, beating former Respect party leader Salma Yaqoob in a bitter contest.

The Conservatives will no doubt now spend the next few months reminding voters that it was Byrne who left the note after Labour lost power in 2010, telling his successor as chief secretary to the Treasury “I’m afraid there is no money”.

Byrne has apologised multiple times for the letter, saying he will regret it forever.

Byrne, MP for Birmingham Hodge Hill since 2004, will go up against Andy Street, former managing director of John lewis, who took a surprise win for the Conservatives in the inaugural elections in 2017.
