Angela Rayner is a British politician serving as Shadow Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster, Shadow Minister for the Cabinet Office, and Shadow Secretary of State for the Future of Work since 2021 and Shadow First Secretary of State, Deputy Leader of the Opposition, and Deputy Leader of the Labour Party since 2020. She has been a Member of Parliament (MP) for Ashton-under-Lyne since 2015. She ideologically identifies as a socialist and as being part of Labour’s soft left.

Rayner was elected Deputy Leader of the Labour Party on 4th April 2020. Rayner won in the third round with 52.6% of party members voting for her. Outside the Labour Party, Rayner still remains somewhat of an unknown quantity. According to YouGov rating data collected between July 2020 and October 2020, only 37% of the general public had ever heard of Rayner.

After first entering parliament in 2015, Rayner was quickly singled out by Parliamentarians as a passionate speaker. This may have got the better of Rayner in October 2020 when she used the word ‘scum’ in reference to Tory MP Chris Clarkson in the midst of a Commons debate.

The Ashton-under-Lyne MP had her first son, Ryan, at the age of 16 and said being a teenage mother “saved me”.
