#AndyBurnham hammers Tory hypocrisy

Last Updated: February 19, 2022By Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Andy Burnham: he’s Mayor of Greater Manchester and he knows the reasons for every political policy being enacted there.

Here’s a great clip highlighting the Conservative government’s hypocrisy towards local government.

It’s from last Thursday’s (February 17) edition of the BBC’s Question Time. The issue here is Clean Air Zones (CAZs) but could be applied to any number of local policies, as Mr Burnham rightly states in the video.

Have a look, and a listen:

So the Conservative government imposed a requirement for local authorities to improve air quality – but it did not supply the necessary funding, and it has been campaigning against the measures that have been introduced under the conditions it created.

Rank hypocrisy. It stinks.

With local elections coming up in May, we should be asking questions about these policies.

Do you have a local issue that upsets you – in which you think conditions imposed by the authorities are unfair?

Do you know which authorities imposed those conditions? Were they brought in by local councillors or imposed by a central government that made extravagant demands but provided no help?

If so, you’ll know that the one thing you don’t need at local government level is a lot of Conservative councillors who will make matters worse.

Have YOU donated to my crowdfunding appeal, raising funds to fight false libel claims by TV celebrities who should know better? These court cases cost a lot of money so every penny will help ensure that wealth doesn’t beat justice.
