Gary Neville has lashed out at Boris Johnson and Keir Starmer
The former Manchester United and England footballer lashes out during an interview with Anushka Asthana on Peston, which airs on ITV at 10.45pm on Wednesday evening. Last week, Manchester was placed into Tier 3 - the highest alert level in the Government's updated yet stricter set of lockdown restriction rules. This immediately sparked a backlash from Greater Manchester Mayor Andy Burnham, who had been at odds with the Government during the previous tier system when Manchester was being moved from Tier 2 to Tier 3.
Speaking on Peston, Sky Sports football pundit Neville says: "We're frustrated from the inconsistency, the flip-flop strategies that the government have adopted over the last eight months.
"I think we're even frustrated about the fact that yesterday the Labour Party abstained.
"You know, your job's to stand as a leader in the most difficult times - it's not to abstain, it's not to not turn up."
