The idea of a Tory winning Tees Valley was so outlandish that he literally pledged to nationalise his local airport. Now he is Mayor.
To run for the Lib Dem leadership, a candidate needs the support of 10% of their MPs. So they now need the support of less than one person.
A Tory wins West Mids Mayor by 4k votes - @unitetheunion cancelled a £10k donation to Siôn Simon out of spite. The hard left hates Labour.
