Head North : A Rallying Cry for a More Equal Britain Hardback



Gordon Brown: '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.'The Observer: 'Not since Tony Blair 30 years ago have politicians advocated for the north from a place of understanding'. Picked as one of Waterstones' Non-Fiction 'Books You Need to Read in 2024'Picked by the Financial Times as one of 'The Best New Politics Books'Picked by iNews as one of 'The Best New Books to Read in March 2024'Britain is more unequal than ever before.

If we're ever going to fix this, we must take the power out of Westminster. Looking 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 ten-point 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' from successive Tory Prime Ministers, Head North outlines how we can spread political and economic power throughout the UK and push forward for a fairer future. The North will not sit on the sidelines any longer.

It's time for real change - and this is how we can achieve it!
