Far be it for me to heap praise upon a Manchester United player, but let’s pause our regular thinking for a moment and thank Marcus Rashford for his efforts to ensure no child goes hungry. Earlier in the year the England International forced the government into a U-turn over free school meals during the summer holidays. Rashford has continued to campaign to end child hunger in the UK, and the 22 year-old has been a beacon in these challenging times.
Meanwhile the Tories continue to show their utter lack of compassion. As a party they voted extending the scheme to offer free school meals during the holidays, whilst recently MPs voted for a pay rise. The government has wasted huge sums of money on a broken Serco Track and Trace system, a system which is far more costly than the scheme Rashford is campaigning for, so the money is there – the Tories just don’t give a damn.
Then again, with this massive cockwomble in charge, is this a surprise?
The Tories are creating a generation of people who will never ever consider voting for them.
