Angela Rayner accused of making explicit joke about crossing legs to distract Boris Johnson


ANGELA Rayner is at the centre of a fresh storm over claims she made a crude joke about crossing her legs to distract the Prime Minister.

She had previously denied using the Basic Instinct-style tactic, calling allegations she had done so disgusting and untrue.

Angela Rayner is at the centre of a fresh storm

The deputy Labour leader complained that the claims, published by the Mail on Sunday last week, were concocted by sexist, male Tories.

But last night the newspaper alleged that Ms Rayner told a group of MPs: “I like to do my Sharon Stone trick.

” I cross and uncross my legs and give him a flash of my ginger g*****r.”

She is said to have made the remark on the Commons terrace several months ago.

Labour admit Angela Rayner WAS at Keir beer night after months of denials


Major press freedom row erupts as newspaper editor rejects parliament summons

Labour declined to comment on the reports last night.

It comes with Ms Rayner already under fire and facing accusations of hypocrisy after the party admitted she was at the Keir Starmer Beergate event.

Yet days before the admission she had slated the PM for his involvement in Partygate, saying it was a basic principle that elected representatives “must tell the truth and act with integrity”.

Labour admitted that Ms Rayner was at an event in Durham in April last year where party leader Sir Keir was pictured swigging beer — potentially in breach of Covid rules at the time.

But for months the party had denied she was there.

North West Durham’s Tory MP Richard Holden said: “The Labour deputy leader has the gall to talk about honesty, integrity and truth but seems to think that those principles don’t apply to her — only coming clean when she got caught out.”
