Labour leadership: Who is Rebecca Long-Bailey?

Oli Dugmore

Who is Rebecca Long-Bailey?

Rebecca Long-Bailey is the favourite among Jeremy Corbyn supporters to become Labour’s new leader. But the public know very little about the Labour MP for Salford and Eccles and former pawn shop worker.

The only way to learn more is to ask, so that’s exactly what JOE did when we met with Long-Bailey in Manchester.

We discussed her childhood, her proudest achievements in life, her biggest regret and whether she’s ever taken illegal drugs, all in a bid to find out more about the woman who could soon be Labour’s first ever female leader.
