Known to marshal the right flank during his football career, the forty-six-year-old, former England defender Gary Neville crosses to the left in the pollical arena as he joins the Labor Party.

As a fierce critic of the UK’s prime minister, Boris Johnson, and generally, of the whole government during the pandemic, it was revealed that Gary Neville had joined the party “in the last few days”.

Anneliese Dodds and Lucy Powel, the Labor shadow cabinet ministers, welcomed Gary Neville, with suggestions that the former footballer could even one day make a bid to become Greater Manchester mayor.

“I have joined the Labor Party in the last few days. I want to support Labor”, said Gary Neville, as he spoke to the BBC’s Political Thinking podcast.

Gary went on to say, “I do believe that we need a progressive Labor Party, but one that actually not just looks after the left side; it has to come towards the center.”

When he was asked the question of whether he could see himself as a possible successor to Andy Burnham, the current Greater Manchester mayor, on the Podcast, Neville said: “I love Greater Manchester and I love every borough in Greater Manchester, I’m not sure that would be for me to be honest. I’ve not decided yet, No, I haven’t decided yet.”

As for the question of standing for office, Neville added to his statement, “It doesn’t feel like something that I’m going to do. I’m not saying never, It doesn’t feel like that and it doesn’t feel like I’m going to be an MP. I don’t feel like I’m an MP.”

But out of all the comments made, Neville did not rule out the possibility of running for an elected role, but stating that he would get “eaten alive” is as clear as it may seem.

“Personally think he’s more than capable of navigating (well streaming) his way through the world of politics”, said the secretary of the Labor Party, Ms. Powel. She also stated that Ms. Dodds was “very pleased” to have Neville join the Labor Party.
