The Conservative MP who told Marcus Rashford he should stick to football has a second job herself.
This morning the Guardian reports Natalie Elphicke, who criticised the free school meals campaigner in July after he missed a penalty in the Euro 2020 final, has a £36,000 a year role as chair of the New Homes Quality Board, as well as her job as an MP.
Elphicke did subsequently apologised for the message and said that she regretted her “rash reaction”
Following Elphicke’s criticism over the Euro 2020 match, Rashford wrote in The Spectator: “Disappointingly for some, the ‘stick to football’ advice doesn’t cut it where I’m from. I’d be doing [my] community and my family a disservice if I did not use my platform to speak on behalf of the millions whose voices are not being heard.”
