Gove accuses Greater Manchester mayor of ‘posturing’ over COVID rules stand-off

Politics

Michael Gove has accused Greater Manchester Mayor Andy Burnham of “posturing” and “political positioning” in refusing to accept strict new COVID-19 restrictions.

The government risked further inflaming tensions amid a stand-off with Mr Burnham over whether the region should be moved into the highest alert level of new three-tier system for local lockdowns.

Mr Burnham has called for greater financial help for firms that would be affected by the move, which would see bars and pubs closed – and likely a number of other businesses.
