Britain is statistically more unequal than ever before. If we’re ever going to fix this, maybe we should take the power out of Westminster?

Head North could change this, and the Mayors of Greater Manchester and the Liverpool City Region, Andy Burnham and Steve Rotheram are leading this fight. For the first time, they share their experiences of modern British politics, from how the Hillsborough disaster shaped them and their time as MPs in Westminster witnessing its systematic flaws, to leaving to become Mayors up North, battling Boris Johnson during the Covid-19 pandemic, and creating a new vision for what Britain could be. In Head North, they propose an ambitious plan to rewire and reimagine our country beyond the Westminster bubble. A timely discussion around Northern voices and culture, devolution and the failed promises of ‘levelling up’.

‘A path-breaking book by two dynamic leaders working to transform the North of England, and whose ideas on the future deserve all our attention’ – Gordon Brown
