Good for him
^^^ exactly. Stories that already have media attention and lots of attention on social media can already get decision makers motivated to do something. This is a great example of that.
Me too. But there's no doubt there are single people working full time struggling to make ends meet who are going to face a tax rise to pay for other people's children to have free meals. Should we not just let charity cover things like this, then people can choose to contribute rather than have it forced on them?
Nice thing to do.
But couldn't he have contributed and gotten his football team mates involved?
Hes a multi millionaire worth 50m.
Considering the amount of money being spent on other support, this amount is going to make very little difference.
He’s an absolute class act - Legend.
Which sounds lovely. I'm glad my taxes are paying for children not to go hungry, it sounds like a great cause. It's what, £1.80 per person?
His mother should be proud, despite all the millions and what not the kid seems to be really grounded.
It's beyond stupid it even took someone of his stature to speak about this on social media though, what are these buffoons in charge doing?
Right out of the mouthpiece of Katie Hopkins. Bravo sir.
Stating the obvious but yeah what’s the problem with kids having a decent meal?
Are you not aware? Katie Hopkins said almost exactly the same things. Great minds think alike and all that.
Nothing alike. I think you need to learn to read. How's finding it sad that people can't afford to feed their kids the same? Especially with the 600k extra unemployed people.
Could Rashford have simply set up a charity and made it voluntary rather than mandating it from already strained government budgets? If you want to pay £1.80 that's fine, maybe I would too. But there is an opportunity cost to this money being spent.
Nah, send them down the mines make them work for their bread.
“Dear @MarcusRashford,” Hopkins tweeted. “Do you think women should think about how they are going to feed a child before they decide to have it? I do not want to pay to feed other people’s kids. You are welcome to. Thank you, Katie Hopkins.”
I know totally different right?
lol, you even manage to stir up the natives when you're not even trying!
Yeah. Lol. Like the direct opposite.
Well, let's make sure we pressure the government to only put tax rises on the wealthier members of society.
Even better: we could do that whilst pressuring them to actually reduce taxes on those poor people you highlight. That way, everyone's happy. Even you.
Both saying the same thing in a different way is what it’s comes across to me. Unless I took it the wrong way in which case I will apologise?
