He was a hit with the charity’s workers in Manchester — the day after MPs defeated his bid to extend school meals.

This week, Marcus Rashford blasted Tory MPs for making kids feel like they ‘don’t matter’ after losing his bid to get the nation’s most vulnerable youngsters free school meals this winter.

MPs have rejected a Labour motion to extend free school meals over the school holidays until Easter 2021 by 322 votes to 261, majority 61.

The Manchester United star had free school meals as he grew up.

After the vote, he shared a lengthy message on Twitter.

“A significant number of children are going to bed tonight not only hungry but feeling like they do not matter,” he said.

“We must stop stigmatising, judging and pointing fingers. Our views are being clouded by political affiliation. This is not politics, this is humanity.”

And he called on No10 to “sit around the table” again to come up with a new plan, adding: “I don’t have the education of a politician – many on Twitter have made that clear today – but I have a social education having lived through this.”

He finished the post: “These children are the future of this country. They are not just another statistic.

“And for as long as they don’t have a voice, they will have mine. You have my word on that.”

Diego Maradona funeral worker sacked for taking selfie next to football legend’s body in open coffin

A FUNERAL parlour worker has been sacked after taking a selfie by the open coffin of Diego Maradona.

The sick photo showing him doing the thumbs-up by the football legend’s body started circulating on social media this afternoon.

The owner of the funeral parlour, a firm called Sepelios Pinier, confirmed to local media the worker had been sacked.

The employee is understood to have been one of the men tasked with preparing Maradona’s body for the wake.

His coffin was left open for the family wake which preceded the public send-off where the coffin was closed at Argentina’s Pink House which started at 6am local time today.

Maradona’s lawyer Matias Morla named the sick selfie culprit as Diego Molina and posted a social media picture of him on his official Twitter feed as he pledged to take legal action. 

He wrote in a menacing message alongside his tweet: “This is Diego Molina, the author of the photo taken beside Maradona’s coffin. 

“He’s Pinier’s head of burials. Diego Molina is the swine that took the picture of himself alongside Maradona. 

“For the memory of my friend I am not going to rest until he pays for this aberration.”
