Lisa Nandy left stuttering as she is asked THREE times why Andy Burnham trashed deal offer


The Labour Party is set to force a vote in the House of Commons demanding that the Government delivers “a fair deal” for communities facing Tier 3 coronavirus restrictions. This comes after increasing tensions between Greater Manchester officials and Westminster over the financial support package being offered to the region. Shadow Foreign Secretary Lisa Nandy was confronted by ITV Good Morning Britain host Kate Garraway on why Labour Mayor Andy Burnham had rejected the Government’s original funding offer.

Ms Garraway asked: “Why is Andy Burnham asking for £65million when the neighbouring counties accepted £56million?”

Ms Nandy told her: “It’s because we think that £65million is the absolute basic minimum that we can have to help our businesses and people survive the winter.”

However, the host interrupted to repeat the question: “The point is why do you need more than those other people?”

The Shadow Cabinet minister insisted that the region was in a different place to the rest of the country because essentially tier 2 restrictions had been in place since the end of July.
