It comes to something when a 22 year-old football player has to speak up for meal vouchers for children to get the government to change its mind over letting tens of thousands of children go hungry this summer.

 

Someone pointed out on Twitter that Iain Duncan Smith claimed £39 for one meal and that would provide a large number of food vouchers.

Excellent result,

 

Although it does all seem rather strange that they were going to let this happen in the first place.  The government have actually, and I can't believe I'm saying this done an amazing job of supporting workers and most of the self employed, housing the homeless, building extra hospitals rapidly etc.  What's £20 million on free school meals over summer when you've spent £300 billion plus propping the whole country up!

We could do with some help from you.

I don't believe it was intentional, it makes no sense. Or Johnson was asleep at the wheel and some nasty right wingy type was overseeing it.  It doesn't fit with the zeitgeist, but we all know that the government is chaotic. Frankly I've been super impressed with the people at universal credit and , the speed that my business support grant was processed.  Normally it would take more than one premier league footballer to force a U turn.

Well done to Marcus Rashford for the MBE - well deserved.

 

Someone on Twitter pointed out the irony of Bojo congratulating Marcus on the gong that was awarded for campaigning against Bojo's policies on free school meals.

Tory claim:

“This government has expanded eligibility for free school meals to more children than any other in decades."

 

he left out: ... by driving more and more and more UK children into food poverty

 

"In 2018-19, The Trussell Trust, the largest UK food bank network, provided 1.6 million packages of emergency food supplies.

For comparison, in 2009 they supplied 41,000 packages. "

Talking yesterday about PM's response to Marcus Rashford: "There has been communication between the two" - @MattHancock tells @BBCBreakfast

 

Hmm, unless he’s referring to the call we had following the u-turn in June?... Marcus Rashford on Twitter yesterday.

Marcus has teamed up with Tom Kerridge now. They're doing a series of 5-minute videos to encourage young people to make cheap, healthy and filling meals that don't take too long to prepare.

So you think it wasn't Johnson who ordered the three line whip for the party to vote to the last soul(less) to deny kids food?

and that bad press by someone with real social clout wouldn't make Johnson claim he's changed tack/never meant to be a self serving piece of worthless crap?

 

Well done again Marcus.
