Marcus Rashford says collecting honorary degree ‘bittersweet’ after benefits cut

The Independent says Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford said it felt “bittersweet” collecting his honorary degree for tackling child poverty the day after the Universal Credit uplift was retracted.

The England international used his speech at the University of Manchester ceremony at Old Trafford to highlight how the Government’s cut meant “millions of families across the UK lost a lifeline”.

At 23 years old, Rashford became the youngest recipient of an honorary doctorate from the university, rewarding his campaign against child poverty.
