Manchester Musicians Back Mayor Andy Burnham In His Fight For More Support From The Government
A host of music figures associated with Manchester have joined in the dissent over the government's treatment of the city.
A stand off between central and local government ended yesterday (October 20th) with Boris Johnson forcibly putting Manchester in Tier 3 lockdown, without providing the financial assistance asked for by those on the ground.
The move was truly remarkable, with Manchester mayor Andy Burham finding out about the decision when assistants showed him the headlines on a mobile phone.
Footage quickly went viral, with online dissent including a number of figures associated with the city's illustrious music scene.
Everyone from Liam Gallagher to Tim Burgess - who recently helped save a venue in Manchester - joined in, with many others making their voice heard.
