Hold a referendum to abolish greater manchester mayor and return a democratic system to  run the city. We voted to not appoint a mayor back in 2016 but it has been forced on us and Andy Burnham has been in the position since 2017. Since then the GM police has greatly failed and been put into special measures with over 80,000 uninvestigated cases as well as the shambolic attempt to impose a so called clean air zone which will be 493 sq miles and will see a charge which is not a directive as claimed this will damage business. The Mayor has spent £millions on a signage contract and cameras by the  start of this it could cost greater manchester estimated £500 million. The council tax increase of 11% for the mayors office is scandalous in the current economic sqeeze we need to follow Bristol and remove the mayor.
