Birmingham has a Tory Metro Mayor, Birmingham is a key battle ground at the next election. Meanwhile Momentum is plotting to clearout Blairist centrists in local government , Manchester being seen as to cosy to business and developers. A big battle is building up for when Richard Leese retires.

I notice several tram schemes seem to be falling into place recently. Centro needs to develop some sharp elbows and sieze the opportunity to get it's tram big bang programme. Forget sprint push for them to be all tram lines.
