Tory MP who said Marcus Rashford should focus on his day job has a second job herself

Marcus Rashford: he has done far more for the United Kingdom than Natalie Elphicke.

Natalie Elphicke should have learned to keep her opinions to herself after she tried to influence senior judges after her husband was convicted of sexual assault. Clearly she didn’t.

That breach of the MPs’ code of conduct resulted in a pathetic punishment – just one day’s suspension from Parliament. Clearly it wasn’t enough to teach her the lesson she needed to learn.

Earlier this year, she criticised Marcus Rashford – the footballer whose campaigning ensured that the poorest schoolchildren could avoid malnutrition by forcing the government to continue providing free school meals to them during school holidays at the height of the Covid-19 crisis.

After he missed a vital penalty in the Euro 2020 final, she said he should have focused on his football rather than “playing politics”.

What a hypocrite! It turns out that she is among the legion of Tory MPs who have a second job.

The Mirror has the story:

Perhaps Ms Elphicke was distracted from her responsibilities as an MP by the demands of her own second job?

In any case, since she is clearly averse to the idea of people having occupations that distract them from their main work – and therefore must disagree with the Tory claim that it brings a “richness” to their Parliamentary experience…

Will she be resigning her £100-an-hour second job any time soon?

    Marcus Rashford has to be applauded by everybody. He cares, this why he conducts an important campaign as he does. He has lived through these experiences and can draw upon his own personal experiences. He doesn’t gain any financial reward, unlike many politicians. Perhaps if this lady’s husband is depraved and deprived, maybe she should brush up on her bedroom techniques and keep him out of trouble.
