Birkenhead has been a Labour stronghold since it was re-created in 1950 but between 1861 and 1918, it mostly voted Conservative.

The town is promised major change over the next two decades as the focus for Wirral Council’s regeneration of the borough through redeveloping brownfield sites around its docks and on the banks of the River Mersey. However with higher levels of deprivation and a feeling the town centre is on the decline, some are sceptical things can be turned around.

The town’s most recent MP was Labour’s Mick Whitley who is standing down after losing a selection contest within the local party. Former Wirral South MP Alison McGovern, who lives in Birkenhead, is running as that party’s candidate.
