Johnson likewise composed straightforwardly to Rayner. The items in the letter have not been shared, aside from one statement detailed by the Telegraph that expressed: “The remarks were not in my name.”

Talked with on BBC Radio 4’s Today program, the shadow chancellor, Rachel Reeves, didn’t push for those answerable for the cases to be recognized and declined to say whether Labor would gripe to Ipso.

She said: “She doesn’t have to utilize her sex to win a contention or put the head of the state off, or whatever was proposed in that article. She does it by the strength of her contention, and to propose in any case, it’s simply nauseating and it doesn’t do equity to the splendid ladies we have in parliament from all sides.”
