Andy Burnham urges Labour to ‘stick to its guns’ on £28bn climate pledge

Keir Starmer has been urged not to backtrack on his plans to spend £28bn on green projects by Labour’s Greater Manchester mayor, Andy Burnham. He told the Labour leader to “stick to your guns” after Starmer said he may scale down the investment given the financial picture he would inherit if he became prime minister. Burnham said the money would be “investment in the future”, as Starmer faces pressure over the planned annual green payments. The Conservatives have been increasing their attacks on Labour over the proposal after the UK entered the election year, but supporters have been concerned about watering down the pledge. Burnham told LBC’s Tonight With Andrew Marr: “I would absolutely say to the party: stick to your guns, you’re on the right path.” https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2024/jan/08/andy-burnham-urges-labour-to-stick-to-its-guns-on-28bn-climate-pledge

            Let's not allow short-term political considerations to jeopardize the long-term well-being of our planet and people. We can, and must, do better.

              Great call from Burnham, the UK must continue to support climate action projects to create a better and sustainable environment.

                @joseph_githinji Everyone who promises anything in regard to climate should make sure they keep their end of the bargain.
