Winner Andy Burnham who is now heavily tipped to become the next Labour Party leader as current Labour leader Keir Starmer starts to blame everyone else for the poor results u and down the country as Labour slips even further down the grid.
Starmer has sacked Angela Rayner tonight, it will be the final nail in the coffin for Starmer who never gave Labour a push in the right direction, instead he pushed them over a cliff and now the organisation is further sunk as the sacking of Rayner will lead to resignations.
This day though despite all what is going on belongs to Andy Burnham who will now continue to be the Mayor of Greater Manchester.
