Andy Burnham is a Millionaire

Andy Burnham has written to Nigel Farage to complain about a UKIP leaflet suggesting he was a millionaire. Which is true.

Burnham owns at least two properties, and estimates by local estate agents say his house in the nice leafy bit of Warrington would fetch at least £350,000. Then there is his flat in Kennington, which he rents out. Flats round there don’t go for less than £350,000 at a very conservative estimate. 

After nearly two decades on the public teat, Burnham’s pension assets will push him into millionaire territory.  Not only does he have 13 years of absurdly generous MPs’ pension, he also spent four years as a SpAd and five years as a government minister. The public sector pays.

The elder Burnham will have pension of at least £30,000 per annum and this asset, along with the property, easily pushes him over the mark. He may be ashamed of his wealth, but he can’t just ignore it.
