Angela Rayner remarks: Speaker summons newspaper editor over ‘demeaning’ article

Sky News says the Speaker of the House of Commons has summoned the editor of a national newspaper for a meeting after an article about Angela Rayner that has been roundly condemned as misogynistic.

The story in the Mail on Sunday cited Conservative MPs saying that Labour’s deputy leader deliberately distracted Mr Johnson by crossing and uncrossing her legs.

One anonymous source was reported as saying: “She knows she can’t compete with Boris’s Oxford Union debating training, but she has other skills which he lacks.”

It was described as “misogynist and sexist tripe” by the prime minister – a sentiment shared by the Speaker, Sir Lindsay Hoyle.
