Gm Mayor Andy Burnham has revealed that he would back a second referendum on Brexit as a last resort rather than see the UK crash out of the EU without a deal but has warned that doing so would cause civil unrest and social division across Greater Manchester if that was to happen. Burnham called for an extension beyond the March 2019 leaving date should a deal not be done. But warned... He also claimed it was possible the alt-right were driving the agenda to ‘set up a clash in our communities from which they think they can profit.’ The results for Greater Manchester were that 7 boroughs voted to leave with 3 including Manchester itself choosing to remain. Salford opted to say 'tarra' to the EU with 56.8% of those who voted in the City expressing that they wanted to leave. Meanwhile Burnham is in London to demand that more powers are devolved to Greater Manchester.
