Britain's coolest mayor is now Europe's coolest MEP
The mayor who branded Donald Trump a ‘wasteman’ and banned him from his city has won a seat in the European Parliament.
Magid Magid was hailed as the coolest mayor in the UK last year after posing on top of a staircase banister for his official photo.
The 29-year-old, who moved to Sheffield from Somalia when he was five, was both the youngest Lord Mayor the city has ever seen and the first Green Party councillor to take on the role.
He hung up his mayoral boots earlier this month and announced he would be running in the European elections.
After winning his seat tonight, he tweeted: ‘We did it. Today is about a Green Wave cascading through Europe & landing on the shores of Yorkshire for the first time. We’re just getting started.
