Andy Burnham has held many senior cabinet positions
and stood for the Labour leadership twice, before leaving
Westminster and becoming Mayor of Greater Manchester in 2017.
Now serving his second term as Mayor, his profile grew over the past year as he fought for his position and challenged the government on imposing the highest tier Covid restrictions in the north west of England.
Andy speaks to Krishnan about his experience leaving the north for Cambridge university, why he feels devolution is the way forward for the UK and how he thinks Westminster needs to change.
