I have nominated Angela Rayner for Deputy Leader of the Labour Party.
She’s a lifelong trade unionist; tough, smart, utterly loyal to our Party and our trade union movement. Someone who galvanises support right across it. Someone who should never, ever be underestimated because every time people do that, she proves them wrong.
A great campaigner, motivator and a grafter. All the skills needed for the campaigning Deputy Leader we need.
I believe Keir and Angie would make a winning team.
Good luck to all the candidates. They are committed and brave colleagues.
Here’s to a respectful, tolerant and hopefully inspiring deputy leadership campaign that all of us across the Labour and Trade Union movement can be proud of.
