STEPHEN Manderson, better known by his stage name Professor Green has hit out at North West Hampshire MP Kit Malthouse.

The British music legend took to Facebook earlier this morning to express his anger at Conservative MPs for voting against extending free school meals.

Last night Labour’s motion to  extend free school meals over school holidays until Easter 2021 was defeated by 261 votes to 322 a majority of 61.

Of those who voted only two Hampshire MPs were in favour of extending the scheme.

Professor Green wrote: “Clearly never gone a day without a meal in his life, but is one of many who’ve voted against free school meals.

“Growing up there was a lot of stress in my household, most of it due to a lack of money despite my Nan working three jobs. We earned our poverty, so to speak.

“My Nan used to get vouchers for my powdered milk and then when I started school I had tokens to get my food each day. It wasn’t something that was even a point of discussion, let alone division. It just was.”

In the post, which now has almost 10,000 likes, Professor Green urges the public to imagine the stress that  children and families are under when a school meal is the only hot meal a child will get during the day.

He continued: “These MP’s wouldn’t cut their wages the opposite in fact - they accepted an above inflation pay-rise, but during a pandemic when we’re seeing a rise in unemployment they quite literally want to steal food from children.”

The rapper tagged the North West Hampshire MP Kit Malthouse in his post and called him a “pig”.

He finished his post by simply stating voting against the motion was “inhumane” and that he can’t get his head around the “shamelessness of these people.”

The post comes after England football star Marcus Rashford released a statement telling politicians to “stop stigmatising, judging and pointing fingers”.

He called on people to “unite” to protect the most vulnerable children, adding: “For as long as they don’t have a voice, they will have mine.”
