Angela Rayner speaks out on ‘disgusting’ leg slur – ‘they think I must be thick’
Daily Mirror says Angela Rayner today spoke out over “disgusting” claims she uncrosses her legs to distract Boris Johnson – from Tory MPs who think “I must be thick”.
Labour ’s deputy leader branded the attack “classist” as well as sexist in her first broadcast interview since Tory sources aired the claims in a Mail on Sunday article.
She revealed she was left “fearful” and “really down” when tipped off, worrying about what her teenage sons would think.
And she said she had chosen to wear trousers to today’s ITV Lorraine interview to avoid being “judged” further.
“It’s not about my legs,” she said. “I didn’t want people at home thinking ‘let’s have a look to see what her legs are like and how short her skirt is or not’.”
