LISTEN BACK: JOHN SMITH CENTRE ON RADIO SCOTLAND

Our Centre Director was a guest on BBC Scotland’s Good Morning Scotland programme to discuss the misogyny directed at Deputy Labour Leader, Angela Rayner MP.

Kezia Dugdale said she wasn’t surprised at the way Ms Rayner had been treated, and said more needed to be done to call this behaviour out.

The Mail on Sunday newspaper published a story that an unnamed Conservative MP had claimed Ms Rayner had tried to distract the Prime Minister in the Commons by crossing and uncrossing her legs. Ms Rayner dismissed the story as a “perverted smear”.
