Burnham has shown what leadership really looks like over the last few days. There are some really great Conservative MPs out there, they are sadly let down by one of the worst Prime Minister to grace the office, and the most incompetent Health Secretary we've ever had.

I don’t usually read the political threads on SW but I can’t let Matt Hancock take the prize for the most incompetent Health Minister ever. He’s certainly on a short list for this honour but the runaway winner has to be Andrew Lansley whose ill- judged ill-informed Health and Social Care bill tried to re-reorganise the NHS when that was the very last thing it needed.

Please explain/expand your statement.

I think he has shown himself to be no more than a publicity-hungry militant with very little thought for the overall well-being of the most vulnerable of his "constituents".

I was also interested to read that AB receives considerably more in this role than in the MP position he failed to hold : £110k v £82k. His colleagues are doing alright too - "I'm alright Andy" !!

He's left of centre so shouldn't earn decent wages, whereas if you're right wing you can be billionaires and it's fine. Yes, makes sense.

A partial U turn from Sweden. But here's the thing: Swedes of all ages will follow the guidelines, whereas a large minority in the UK, will just be idiots:

Oh DT - don't call our libertarians "idiots". They'll be demanding full compensation, libel payments, free holidays and life-membership of the pubs, bookies, casinos, tattoo parlours, tanning salons and gyms that have unfairly been closed down.

Plus still need an explanation of what "commonsense" and "be alert" actually mean !! :roll: :roll:

Governing numpties is always going to be difficult.........especially when they're egged-on by the likes of Andy Burnham.

I don't need to explain it. If you can't see someone who is trying to get the best deal they can for their people then I guess you'll be seeing the way the government and its discussions with the EU as nothing more than publicity hungry militancy?

If Burnham was a leader who actually cared he would have realised that causing an unequal system of financial support would only further fuel the political fire. This was nothing to do with the people of Greater Manchester and their health - it was simply for AB's self aggrandisement, inflated ego, publicity machine and TV-time bookings. I think he has let himself and his "constituents" badly down and wasted valuable time of all.

God forbid that GM don't fall into issues with hospital capacity/deaths due to the time wasted on correctly being moved to Tier 3.
