Marcus Rashford has been praised by Education Secretary Gavin Williamson today after watching his harrowing performance in the documentary series, ‘The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air’.
With news emerging earlier that Williamson claimed to have spoken to Rashford on Zoom, only for his team to admit that it was actually rugby player Maro Itoje, the education secretary has moved to quickly defend his position by insisting he knows exactly who Marcus Rashford is, after watching him in a recent re-run of the “Fresh Prince documentary”.
Speaking earlier Williamson told us, “Yes, sorry my mistake, it wasn’t actually Marcus I was speaking to, it was some other bla… some other sportsman.
“It’s an easy mistake really, because let’s face it, nobody in parliament knows who this Marcus fella is, and we certainly try not to listen to what he says that’s for sure.
“Anyway, I think I know who he is now, and I must say he’s bloody good at what he does, very passionate indeed.
“I watched him last night and I was in awe at his honesty and he’s an inspiration to us all.
“He’s done exceptionally well to pick himself up by the bootstraps and achieve what he’s achieved – especially considering his background. Did you know a couple of guys who were up to no good starting making trouble in his neighbourhood? And after one little fight, his mom got scared and he was forced to go and live with his aunt and uncle in Bel-Air?
“His whole life was flipped upside down. It’s a tragic tale, but also life-affirming about what you can achieve if you happen to have extremely wealthy well-connected relatives.”
