We said it never and we’ll say it again: Marcus Rashford for Prime Minister.
North Yorkshire MP Kevin Hollinrake is this afternoon at the centre of a Twitter storm.
Marcus Rashford was critical of a tweet from the Malton MP made in a conversation about the Government’s Eat Out to Help Out scheme.
The Manchester United forward successfully campaigned for free school meal vouchers to be provided to pupils over the summer period. It was a big move for not only Rashford but the entire UK because it proved successful as the Government was forced into a u-Turn.
Mr Hollinrake is receiving quite a backlash after his moronic tweet when he said: “Where they can, it’s a parent’s job to feed their children.”
Rashford replied: “I would urge you to talk to families before tweeting. To this day I haven’t met one parent who hasn’t wanted or felt the responsibility to feed their children…”
He added: “Put to the side that this comment came from an MP. It’s comments like this that prevent people from speaking their truth and asking for help. We need to start uplifting each other.

Rashford has a big season ahead of him but off the pitch he is fighting for the vulnerable people of the UK. Not only are these gestures a sign of appreciation for where Rashford himself came from, relying on food banks, it shows that even at the top football has some gems.
The Independent suggested earlier this summer that Paris Saint-Germain would go all out to sign the Manchester United forward this summer, but we’ve yet to see an approach made by the Ligue 1 club.
With the addition of Donny van de Beek from Ajax in the past week, Rashford has another truly exciting attack-minded player to play with at Old Trafford. He will be spoilt for choice when it comes to playing passes into midfield.
