This is simply an outright lie by Andy Burnham:
I think our problem on immigration – and it was for me anyway clearly the biggest issue at the election – was the sense that we weren’t talking about it, so that some people felt we were either in denial or just didn’t want to talk about it.
During all the three debates immigration came up as a major subject even though not all three were about home affairs. In fact immigration was the only subject that came up all three times during the 3 leaders debates.
So either Andy Burnham doesn’t pay any attention to what his boss was saying or doing, or he’s a lying dirtbag who prefers to pander to Daily Mail prejudices with falsehoods. And this guy plans to revive Labour with new ideas?
