Angela Rayner and Boris Johnson condemn ‘sexist’ and ‘misogynistic’ Mail on Sunday article
Sky News says Angela Rayner has condemned a “sexist” and “misogynistic” Mail on Sunday article which claimed Tory MPs have accused her of a ‘Basic Instinct’ ploy to distract Boris Johnson.
The prime minister also commented, tweeting: “As much as I disagree with Angela Rayner on almost every political issue, I respect her as a parliamentarian and deplore the misogyny directed at her anonymously today.”
The story, which reported that Conservative MPs have accused Labour’s deputy leader of deliberately distracting Mr Johnson by crossing and uncrossing her legs, has received a huge backlash following its publication.
