Winner of much silverware in a glittering football career, Manchester United and England striker Marcus Rashford’s deserved Pride of Britain award recognises a stunning all-round performance.
The remarkable man is giving his sport a good name by continuing to champion hungry children after forcing the Government in London to feed them in the summer holidays.
Intensifying pressure to provide free school meal vouchers in future holidays, Rashford proves that he is no flash in the pan.
What is remarkable is an incompetent Conservative Government and Prime Minister continue to resist spending what would be a small amount in the grand scheme of things.
Boris Johnson ’s failure to reply to a letter from Rashford is insulting and we urge the PM to meet the player and hear his argument.
Rashford is proud of his MBE, and now he is, to borrow that old football cliché, over the moon at his Pride of Britain award.
The PM should realise Rashford won’t stop until he wins for hungry children.
