Andrew Neil erupts at Boris 'stupidity' as Manchester deal collapses over £5m 'Baffles me'

Greater Manchester Mayor Andy Burnham asked the Government for a minimum of £65million in financial support for local businesses and residents ahead of the region going into Tier 3 on Friday. Health Secretary Matt Hancock said the offer of £60million is still on the table but former BBC presenter Andrew Neil was not impressed and ripped into the Government as he questioned why they would not give Greater Manchester an extra £5million.

Speaking on This Morning’s The View segment, he explained his disappointment with the Government as he chatted to Ruth Langsford, Eamonn Holmes and Afua Adom.

Andrew remarked: “The £60million is still on the table but the Prime Minister couldn’t tell us that last night at the press conference.

“Maybe he didn’t know. He’s not the great details man.

“That allowed Labour MPs to say £22million was on the table, that’s not true.

It came after Prime Minister Boris Johnson addressed the nation yesterday afternoon detailing the new restrictions in Greater Manchester.

under the Tier 3 rules, pubs and bars not serving substantial meals have to close, and households have been banned from mixing indoors.

As Greater Manchester and Westminster struggled to agree on how much financial help should be given, the Prime Minster stated; “I do regret this.

“As I said last week, we would have a better chance of defeating the virus if we work together.”
