Burnham set to buck trend according to insiders
Greater Manchester mayor Andy Burnham is on course to win a ‘landslide’ in his bid for re-election – in stark contrast to the disaster unfolding for Keir Starmer’s Labour across the country – according to Labour members on the scene.
Labour campaigners in Manchester report that they have never seen anything like the level of support Burnham has been receiving from locals – and the early word from the count has insiders using the word ‘landslide’.
Burnham, of course, stood out by standing up to Boris Johnson and Rishi Sunak when their malignant policies and callousness punished Manchester workers and businesses during lockdown last year – and against the Tories’ dithering and wilful disregard for scientific advice on schools.
The public gets behind people who stand for something – and stand up for it. Who’d have guessed, eh ‘Keith‘?
