Why can’t the rest of the elected Labour Party be like Andy Burnham?

Leadership: Andy Burnham.

Greater ManchesterMayor Andy Burnham is leading where Keir Starmer is not.

Here are two interviews in which the long-ago Labour leadership candidate first makes it clear that he thinks rail workers and British Airways staff taking strike action are right to try to protect their incomes in a cost of living crisis…

Then in this clip from an earlier talk, we see Burnham expanding on why he thinks the Boris Johnson government wants to start fights with working people rather than govern for them, and discussing policy that Labour should try to take forward to a general election, as well as supporting the current strike actions.

There’s more leadership in the less than seven minutes of clips here than we have seen from Keir Starmer in more than two years.
