Show 205 - Andy Street

The Political Party

12-03-2021 • 1 hr

If you still think that Mayors are those councillors in funny hats and gold chains then prepare to have your mind blown. The Conservative Mayor of the West Midlands - and former boss of John Lewis - tells Matt about the significant powers he has and the potential that comes with them. This is a great explanation of the difference mayors can make but also why certain powers should lie in certain hands. Oh and some good news for Coventry City fans!
