Angela Rayner MP talks council estates and accents

Labour's shadow education secretary talks council estates, accents and entering parliament.

Speaking to Westminster Hour presenter Carolyn Quinn, Angela Rayner said that she had always been underestimated because of her accent.

"If you want to underestimate me because I speak like a Mancunian, like the people I grew up with, then so be it at your peril," the MP for Ashton-under-Lyne said.
