Tory MPs reject Marcus Rashford's call for free school meals over holidays

Conservative MPs have rejected a Labour motion calling for an extension of free school meals over the school holidays until Easter 2021.

Footballer Marcus Rashford, who has been campaigning on the issue, reacted on Twitter: “A significant number of children are going to bed tonight not only hungry but feeling like they do not matter because of comments that have been made today.”

He previously warned MPs not to “turn a blind eye” to vulnerable families.

    Free school meals? That slop? Are people seriously that bonkers these days? People whose cooking is worse than school food deserve to starve to death, to save the Great British nation of such negligent depravity.

    Forced diversity has made us poorer less safe, turned the NHS into a living nightmare and less free to express any feelings we may have (censorship) , plus it was forced upon us. Post Brexit Immigration laws must be rewritten to stop betraying Brits an dour future

    As soon as this bunch of privileged clowns lied and manipulated their way in to power, this was always going to happen. Trillions chucked at bankers… they’re all a shameful disgrace.
