Meet Angela Rayner — Labour’s deputy leader on winning back the North

After a tumultuous week for the U.K. Labour Party, Jack Blanchard sits down with deputy leader Angela Rayner to discuss where the party goes from here.

Rayner discusses the challenge the U.K. Labour Party faces in winning back its former heartlands, and explains the appeal of Boris Johnson to voters in the North of England. She also opens up about her relationship with Labour leader Keir Starmer following his decision to remove her as party chair, and attacks the “magnolia politics” which she says turns voters off. And she reflects on how her own troubled childhood has made her the impassioned politician she is today.
