Mail on Sunday rejects Sir Lindsay Hoyle’s invite over Angela Rayner story

BBC News says the editor of the Mail on Sunday has declined an invitation to meet with the Speaker of the House of Commons over a controversial article about Labour’s deputy leader Angela Raynor.

David Dillon rejected Sir Lindsay Hoyle’s invite to discuss the piece, which claimed Tory MPs think Ms Rayner crosses and uncrosses her legs to distract Boris Johnson in Parliament.

Mr Johnson said it was “sexist tripe”.

Mr Dillon said it should be up to journalists to decide what they report.

The article sparked criticism from both sides of the Commons after its publication at the weekend.
