Congratulations to Cllr Mick Wilkes, one of the Lib Dem councillors for Hall Green, on securing his party's nomination for Lord Mayor. On the one hand, it will put him beyond use for a year and stop him being quite such a nuisance to the Regressive Partnership, but on the other, it seems an odd honour for someone who cannot be described as being close to the Hemming wing of the Birmingham Liberal Democrat party and more of a traditional sandalista.

Is this a further sign of the plates shifting within the party locally and perhaps indicative of a move in the centre of power away from the Yardley mafia?
