Being a teenage mum 'saved me', says Labour's shadow education secretary


The shadow education secretary has said that having a baby when she was 16-years-old “saved” her life.

 Angela Rayner, who left school without any qualifications when she was pregnant, said that she was written off as a “scumbug” at the time.

Speaking at Labour Party conference she said: “Even though getting pregnant at 16 and having no qualifications is not the best start for anybody, you’ve got to understand that where my life was, it actually saved me from where I potentially could have been.

“Because I had a little person that I had to look after and I wanted to prove to everybody that I wasn’t the scumbag that they thought I was going to be, and I could be a good mum, and that somebody was finally going to love me as much as I deserved to be loved.”
