Guardian News published this video item, entitled “‘Cheating catches up with you’: Angela Rayner pushes Johnson over Owen Paterson vote” – below is their description.

Angela Rayner pushed the prime minister over an amendment that would pause the suspension of Owen Paterson from the Commons for 30 days. The Conservative MP subsequently escaped suspension and a possible byelection after the amendment passed.

The former cabinet minister was found to have committed an “egregious” breach of lobbying rules during meetings and conversations with the Food Standards Agency and Department for International Development, while he was being paid more than £100,000 by two firms – Randox and Lynn’s Country Foods.

Rayner said it was one rule for Boris Johnson’s party and one for everyone else. Jibing at Johnson about Donald Trump being ‘the prime minister’s hero’, Rayner added that the public would not stand for cheating
