The Privileged & The Poor

The Privileged and the Poor 1

In November 2020 i created "The Privileged & The Poor" in retaliation to my local M.P Robert Largan who openly voted against extending the free school meals program. I was appalled at this decision so i decided to turn it back on him & raise money for the local foodbank. The community come together in this fundraiser and in the end we managed to raise £1,200 for Glossopdale foodbank & managed to give the proceeds to them a few weeks before Christmas.

The England National Football Team have made our nation proud over Euro 2020, The fact we got to the finals of a major tournament since 1966 is something the whole country should have been proud of. I wake up on Monday 12th July 2021 to find an array of horrific racial abuse from "So Called Fans" has been thrown at Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho & Bukayo Saka there for i had to do something about it.

"As an artist you have the freedom to create a message from a blank canvas but very few create a statement" - Deggy

Marcus is a true inspiration for all. I have so much admiration & respect for him and if i could do a small amount of what he has done to help people i would die a happy man. the fact these three young lads have been called rotten and spit on from "so called fans" makes me sick.
