Marcus Rashford may be one of the most talked about names in the country right now after his remarkable victory over the government yesterday.
And yet, Health Secretary Matt Hancock couldn’t even get the Manchester United star’s name right in an interview on Sky Sports today, referring to him as ‘Daniel Rashford’.

“I would go on record saying that there is probably one gay or bi person in every football team” – BIG claim from a Premier League footballer! Click here to read more.
This whole saga has highlighted again just how out of touch politicians can be, with Rashford needing to campaign strongly for the basic right of vulnerable school children getting access to school meal vouchers over the summer holidays.
Hancock clearly praised Rashford’s campaign, but you’d think he could at least remember his name as well!
Marcus Rashford has taken the time the educate himself on government policy, speak to people impacted and put together a targeted campaign for change and the health secretary cannot even be bothered learning his name. It's not that funny.

This is the same man that managed to turn the focus that was on the government to football players!
Now a young 22 year old @MarcusRashford shifting the focus of the government to real issues within our country!

Can they get any more shameful? Boris Johnson said he only found out about the campaign yesterday and Matt Hancock can't even be bothered to say Marcus Rashford's name right. The work is being done for them but they couldn't care less. https://t.co/Yw0t32KlYg
