It comes as multiple council bosses across Greater Manchester agreed to the move and have released a statement condemning the incident which has sparked riots across the US.

Whilst Politicalite supports the honouring of Floyd, it is odd that Bolton Council would not honour a local girl killed by a migrant. 

Eltiona Skana, 30 was charged with the murder in May. Skana, 30 formerly of Turnstone Road, Bolton was charged with the possession of a bladed article.

In a statement signed off by all Greater Manchester council leaders, including Bolton’s David Greenhalgh, local authority bosses explained their decision to light up civic buildings in Mr Floyd’s memory reported the Manchester Evening News. 

They said: “The callous murder of George Floyd on the streets of Minneapolis has sent shockwaves around the world which are being powerfully and painfully felt here in Greater Manchester.

“As Leaders, we want to express our revulsion at the manner of George’s death, our sympathy with his family and our complete solidarity with the Black community here and elsewhere.”

“We know the anger and the agony is real. Discrimination continues every day, not just in the USA but in the UK too. People are tired of having to fight it.”

“To show our sympathy with George’s family, and our support for Black Lives Matter, we have today agreed to coordinate the lighting of civic buildings across our 10 boroughs on Friday evening, following on from the example of Trafford Council, and Salford and Manchester City Councils.”
