Marcus Rashford will renew his fight against food poverty with a petition he believes will shame the Government into action.

The forward was deeply disappointed last month by Education Secretary Gavin Williamson’s dismissive written reply to his plea for help and has made it clear he cannot be bought off by the MBE bestowed on him recently.

Now he will attempt to take the general public with him, asking them to pledge support to #endchildfoodpoverty and effectively force the hand of Mr Williamson — whose reply to Rashford was merely a list of existing Conservative Party policies.

The letter was described by Conservative chair of the education select committee as ‘a lot of clothes pegs without a washing line’. The 22-year-old Rashford said of the letter: ‘We need to do better.’
