BURNT HAM: Manc Mayor Andy Burnham SLAMMED after flip-flopping on a Second Ref just DAYS after slamming ‘People’s Vote’

GREATER Manchester mayor Andy Burnham has been SLAMMED after a ‘flip-flop’ on a second referendum even though Greater Manchester voted to Leave the EU. 

DAYS ago the out-of-touch Mayor slammed “arrogant” campaigners demanding one, but now he’s changed his mind.

He originally slammed ‘People’s Vote’ campaigners and said they be focusing on a “practical, bridge-building” exit from the European Union instead of pushing for a referendum on whatever deal the UK ends up striking with the EU.

He told Politico: “My frustration with those leaping to a second referendum is it further inflames this idea of an arrogant political class, which isn’t listening and isn’t dealing with the issues that gave rise to the referendum in the first place.

Yesterday, the Labour Mayor for Greater Manchester urged MPs across the North West to call on the EU for more time to deliver a Brexit deal, if no agreement can be reached before March, he said if this tactic failed then he would get behind a second vote or ‘People’s Vote’ on Britain leaving the EU. ”

He was slammed by Bolton West MP Chris Green who called Andy Burnham “out of touch” and said we needed to “get on with delivering a clear Brexit”.

Backing the people, Mr Green said: “For the Greater Manchester Mayor to hop on a train to London to give a speech calling for a second referendum or to draw out the Brexit process even longer shows that he is completely out of touch with the people of Bolton and beyond.”

“People voted to leave the EU and we now need to get on with delivering a clear Brexit. The Mayor should be concentrating on reducing homelessness, solving the inequalities in health and getting a proper plan for house building that has the support of residents – not grandstanding with speeches in central London.”
