The MP for Stockton South was very over the moon ahead of the town’s football club Stockton Town FC facing Derbyshire’s Long Eaton in the play-off finals and Rishi Sunak got involved. A man of the people, as ever…
He asked Rishi Sunak to send the team a good luck message – and the PM agreed.
We guess it wasn’t as bad as the time David Cameron forgot he supported Aston Villa and told reporters he actually followed West Ham.
Rishi Sunak Cringe
It is cringe and it is a real shame he won’t ever be pals with any of the players as some of them *gulps* might be working class…
In the video, PM Rishi Sunak said: “Your local MP Matt Vickers has been telling me all about the action down at Bishy Road, the exciting semi final play off, and how Mikey Roberts brought the nail biting penalty shoot out to an end. I understand that you’ve got some of the best and loudest fans around, and Stockton is right behind you and the town couldn’t be prouder.
“I just wanted to wish you the very best of luck in the final – good luck The Anchors!”
It comes as the Labour party claims there is a “pattern of behaviour” in the prime minister’s wife use of taxpayer cash.
Recently it was revealed that Akshata Murty held shares in a childcare company which stands to benefit from policy announced in the budget.
Murty has a stake in Study Hall – an education/technology start-up.
In 2022, Study Hall received a £349,976 government grant through a body called Innovate UK, which is at an arm’s length from the national administration.
