iPhone : Here’s the very latest picture on Covid19 in Greater Manchester.

Overall, things continue to move in the right direction. For comparison, Leicester had 100+ cases per 100k.

We will continue to watch things very closely and ask everyone to follow the official advice.

iPhone : There are 3.7m key workers on less than £10 an hour. They kept us going in this crisis. The chancellor should have given them a payrise, not a dining out discount for the well-off.

Twitter for iPad : Why has the North been hit so hard by this virus? Because millions here are in low-paid, insecure jobs which have not allowed them to follow official public health advice.

READ my article today on why the Government should adopt Greater Manchester’s Good Employment Charter. 👇🏻…

Twitter for iPad : Heinz Beanz Simple - the grafter should get much more than a Living Wage. The truth is, in public and private organisations, we massively over-pay the top 50% and massively under-pay the bottom 50%.

iPhone : Matt Currie Support can be provided through business rates & other measures to help businesses fund it. Levelling up means helping the poorest people and places and you can’t do that through infrastructure alone.

iPhone : 100% this. I’ve been talking about this for years and if the current crisis means ‘Universal Basic Income’ is actually a real discussion it will be an amazing outcome for industry 4.0 and #buildbackbetter…

iPhone : Why do you think the North has been so badly affected by the pandemic?

Mayor of Greater Manchester Andy Burnham says millions of people in the North of England are on low paid, insecure work contracts and have therefore been hit hardest by the virus. JJ

iPhone : Memo to the Chancellor: cuts to stamp duty & VAT won’t “level up” the country; a real Living Wage for all of £10+ would be a start. Time to put proper substance behind the “levelling up” slogan before it becomes meaningless.

iPhone : Kay Burley asking questions of Andy Burnham regarding #wafc on Sky News. Thank you Kay for bringing this up. Now please retweet our fund raising page if you dont mind.…

iPhone : So today the Mayor of Manchester Andy Burnham had a Q&A on #COVIDー19 with our mini reporters.

They brilliantly represented all the kids who submitted questions, giving him a bit of a grilling but he was refreshingly open & honest & it was much appreciated.


Twitter for iPad : Thanks so much Andy Burnham I always considered Tony Wilson a kind of ‘Unofficial Mayor’ of Manchester. So it’s particularly fitting to receive this feedback from you! Our actual Mayor! Great Stuff 👍……
