Politicians and celebrities of all stripes come out in support of plan rejected by government
Celebrities and politicians from across the spectrum have come out in support of Marcus Rashford’s campaign to end child hunger in England, a day after the government voted against extending free school meals to disadvantaged children during the holidays.
Representatives from the worlds of sport, entertainment and politics tweeted praise for the Manchester United striker. Gary Lineker ignored BBC impartiality guidelines to say: “Yesterday they voted against helping to feed our hungriest children during a pandemic. Never thought I’d tweet that.”
