ANDY BURNHAM'S CALL FOR GOVERNMENT TO SUPPORT NORTHERN POWERHOUSE UNDERMINED BY PEOPLE TRYING TO WORK OUT IF HE WEARS EYESHADOW OR NOT
ANDY BURNHAM'S recent call from the Labour front bench for Theresa May to keep plans for the Northern Powerhouse alive is said to have been fundamentally undermined by people trying to work out if he’s got eyeshadow on.
The shadow home secretary held the government to account yesterday over its pledge for investment in the north of the country, but his authoritative performance was met with an uncomfortable shuffling as whispers grew he’d applied a touch of Bobbi Brown before speaking.
Burnham, 46, is currently bidding to become the mayor of Greater Manchester and has served in both the cabinet and shadow cabinet. He’s been as close to a loyal supporter of General Jez that there’s been after refusing to knife him after missing out on the leadership himself in 2015.
Rumours that Burnham does drag at the weekends or is indeed trapped in the wrong body altogether have been quickly downplayed by a party spokesperson who issued this strong denial:
“It’s just a bit of eyeliner, get out of the dark ages.”
