Show 219 - Liam Byrne


Labour's candidate for West Midlands Mayor mixes the personal and the political in this searingly honest interview. Reflecting candidly about how he dealt with the loss of both his parents as well as his father's alcoholism, Liam describes the effect on him as a person and as a politician. Liam shares his narrative on Labour's wilderness years and his analysis of what the party has to do to win again, but do party members agree with him? If you've ever wondered why some politicians possess such a relentless drive and desire for public service, this will give you the answers.
