Description

Boris Johnson has threatened to unleash “the terrors of the earth” on the Tory MP who made misogynistic claims about Angela Rayner.

It comes after The Mail on Sunday printed a piece about Labour’s deputy leader comparing her to a character in Basic Instinct and quoting an unnamed Tory MP who claimed she was trying to distract the Prime Minister by crossing and uncrossing her legs.

The Prime Minister has condemned the article as the “most appalling load of sexist, misogynist tripe”. But what does it tell us about the treatment of women in Westminster?

On the Sky News Daily podcast with Leah Boleto we are joined by our political correspondent Joe Pike, the longest serving female MP, Labour’s Harriet Harmon and former Conservative MP Anna Soubry.
