    I have been very critical of him as a footballer in the past. But as a caring human being there can be no criticism. Well done Marcus.

    Probably a reason nobody can explain the reason of keeping politics out of football/sport. Been conditioned to think football's an escape, and in many ways it is but politicians/governing bodies don't want footballers to have a voice due to their immense platform with the public.

    Look at what Rashfords done with his platform. Fantastic stuff and really making a difference to people's lives.

    There is a consistent theme with those who claim this isnít a time for politics, or specifically that football should somehow be kept separate from politics.

    Itís all about the government avoiding awkward questions.

    Pleas from poor people fell on deaf ears, despite UK government claiming it would support people through this crisis. Then a high profile footballer steps in (well done him) and all of a sudden thereís a U turn.

    Wasnt only Rashford though, Welsh minister and Sturgeon came oot and said their kids would be getting free lunches, that put even more pressure on the Tory govt. Nothing said on the ebc though, seems it was all Rashfords doing, but, well done him.

    Yes thatís correct but Rashford used his profile to provide a platform that ensured the plea would be heard.

    It's a bit of a **** world where it needs a celebrity fronted campaign (however well intentioned) to shame a government into doing the right thing.

    I can't help thinking that a lot of the media now praising him wouldn't have shown the same level of interest in a campaign not fronted by somebody famous.


    The government are now claiming that it wasn't a U-Turn and that they weren't shamed into this, but I don't think many people are falling for that.




    -- Just to clarify that this is in no way an attack on Rashford, as the lad seems to have a level of care and compassion that is sadly lacking in those in charge.

    Tory MP for NW Durham on Emma Barnett show just now called him ‘Martin Rashford’. It’s not difficult FFS.

    SNP guy on the same show just called him ‘Marcus Rashcliff’.

    There must be a bet going on.

    I came across this article that put the media response to Rashford into some context:
