It's not Andy Burnham they've humiliated, it's themselves. It's not Andy Burnham they've insulted, it's the people of Greater Manchester.
FUN FACT. The Manchester deal failed because the government wasn't prepared to pay another £5m to help people survive, or 0.042% of the £12bn they/ve spent on the failed Test and Trace.
to put it into perspective, the £22 million the government is providing to support businesses in Greater Manchester during an actual pandemic is £30 million less than Boris Johnson spent on a bridge that doesn't exist in London
  • ‘Young people have never had it easier’
  • Quite a moment as Andy Burnham is shown the government’s £22 million offer on live TV.
  • I get the feeling that this moment will be replayed again and again and again. Politically, absolutely toxic.
  • "The effect of the Bill has been described as a power grab by the Scottish National Party. I am not given to hyperbole - which I thought this was - but now, having read the Bill... I can see why this expression is being used by them", Lord Hope of Craighead
  • Great answer. The question - I think from Nick Robinson - suggested haggling over £5m was ‘showboating’ over a ‘relatively small amount of money’. This is what Burnham said:
  • Andy Burnham absolutely letting rip at the government for withholding the support Manchester needs... looking like the Clark Kent of Stockport. 😍 #ManchesterLockdown @AndyBurnhamGM
  • If only we could have seen this coming
  • One Bill to rule them all, One Bill to find them, One Bill to bring them all and in the darkness bind them.

  • For everyone living in 2020:
  • My acting teacher told us to perform a dramatic monologue from any movie and I did mine from Austin Powers and no one noticed.
  • I’d just like to share with you my idea of hell x
  • I’m happy to see you
  • Ok cool, but lets talk about this twitter.com/exxonmobil/sta…
  • Andy Burnham asked for £65m to save lives and businesses in Greater Manchester – but was refused. That's about 0.5% of what the UK government has spent on a test and trace system that doesn't even work. #perspective
  • The sun is out and the autumn colours framing Edinburgh Castle are 😍
  • I have decided that this is the funniest meme of all time. 7 years old and it still makes me weep with laughter.
