Pls tweet @AndyBurnhamGM abt his “Green” summit and ticketing

As part of his election manifesto in 2017 Andy Burnham promised a ‘Green Summit’.  It was pencilled in for late 2017, then pushed back to March 21 2018.  There was a “registration of interest” process, but the selection critera for who would get a Golden Ticket remain opaque.
Meanwhile though – this.  The conference is taking place on a Wednesday.  And three weeks and a day away from that date which will doubtless be a turning point in human history, people STILL don’t know if they have a ticket.  Some people, who aren’t retired or students, have to book annual leave, childcare or the like.

It is frankly symptomatic of the incompetence (and disdain in which the public is held) that we STILL don’t know who can come.  They have had a year to sort out an open and timely process that meets the needs of ordinary people. And they haven’t done it (are incapable? Indifferent?)

So anyway, I’ve tweeted this.  Feel free to join in if you like

Hello . People still don’t know whether they have tickets to yr “Green” Summit, on a work day, 3 weeks hence. Some need to book annual leave, arrange childcare etc. Are you happy with this level of consideration?
