BURNHAM TO BORIS: Open Bolton’s Pub’s TODAY or Close Them Everywhere Else

GREATER Manchester Mayor Andy Burnham has issued an ultimatum to under-fire Boris Johnson and has told him in no uncertain terms to re-open Bolton’s pubs and restaurants, highlighting other areas that have HIGHER infection rates but no restrictions on hospitality.

Boris has forced Bolton’s pubs and restaurants to close and they can only operate a takeaway-only service crushing an already struggling hospitality sector.

The ban comes as FOUR boroughs in England have LARGER rates than Bolton, yet the town is the only one in the country to have strict measures.

The Bolton News Reported that Burnham issued the ultimatum to Boris calling on him to allow Bolton’s pubs and restaurants to serve customers like the rest of the country or introduce the same restrictions to boroughs with higher infection rates.

Burnham tweeted: “This is the problem with local restrictions.”

“Once they’re in, they tend to stay in.”

“And the longer they’re in, the more the anomalies/injustices grow.”

“Either Ministers close hospitality in places with high cases with compensation.”

“Or let Bolton’s open today. It’s that simple.”
