Coronavirus: Greater Manchester mayor can't accept Tier 3 restrictions on the government's terms

The mayor of Greater Manchester says he is still willing to do a deal, but says it can’t be on the terms that the government has offered.

Andy Burnham says “we could only accept further restrictions with full financial support” and he put forward a costed package of measures to support people on the lowest incomes and those self-employed.

The region will now receive £22 million to aid businesses and local support.

    Huge admiration for this guy. He’s the only one really thinking about saving people’s lives at the moment. Did anyone see the Welsh mayor Chris Bryant on the media yesterday. He was vicious, rude and hypocritical beyond belief on Talk Radio. They told him 23 thousand have died because of lockdown and he literally didn’t care. He used to be a priest for 30 years. Horrifying

    EVERYTHING WILL BE PRIVATISED AFTER THIS VIRUS, NHS ETC. AFTER BREXIT IT WILL BE WORSE i.e. "please sir can I have some more"? Back to the good old days.

    The only way to stop these UNLAWFUL GOVERNMENT ORDERS is MASS NON COMPLIENCE this is a PLANDEMIC with a SINISTER AGENDA. 190 countries have signed up for this RESET with the UN and world economic forum RESET is a fancy New name for THE NEW WORLD ORDER. This is AGENDA 21 at the moment the conditioning period getting people used to being controlled.AGENDA 30 will be worst that's when the ELITES wish to reduce the world population from 7.8 billion to 500000 (to save the planet) Next will be mandatory vaccination ID 2020 microchip technology. Cashless society and MUCH more CONTROL. Time to say enough is enough

    I like how people are deliberately conflating wanting better for people with "resisting a lockdown" thats absolutely not what this is about. With being such a "rich country" sure are stingy. Almost wondering if Britian is rich like Trump is a billionaire.
