About our Angela Rayner news

Latest news on Angela Rayner, UK Deputy Prime Minister and Labour Deputy Leader, covering her role in government, political views, and recent controversies surrounding council house allegations.

Angela Rayner, born in 1980, has risen from humble beginnings to become one of the most prominent figures in British politics. Currently serving as Deputy Prime Minister and Secretary of State for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities in Keir Starmer's Labour government, Rayner has been the Member of Parliament for Ashton-under-Lyne since 2015 and Deputy Leader of the Labour Party since 2020.

Rayner played a crucial role in Labour's landslide victory in the 2024 general election, participating in key debates and helping to shape the party's campaign strategy. Her appointment as Deputy Prime Minister marks a significant milestone in her political career. However, Rayner faced scrutiny earlier in 2024 over allegations regarding the sale of her former council house, though she was ultimately cleared by both the police and HMRC in May 2024.

Known for her straight-talking approach, Rayner has been a vocal advocate for working-class interests in Parliament. Her background as a care worker and trade union representative has informed her political views, with a focus on education, workers' rights, and social equality. Rayner has also been open about her personal experiences, including becoming a teenage mother and overcoming poverty.

Rayner's political journey reflects the changing face of the Labour Party. From supporting Jeremy Corbyn's leadership to becoming a key figure in Keir Starmer's more centrist approach, she has navigated the party's ideological shifts while maintaining her identity as a socialist and member of Labour's soft left.
