According to @politico Angela Rayner insists "Corbyn photobombed her by sliding into the shot [on the left] unnoticed" & "she did not know he would be there in advance and did not talk to him"... yet she then posed for the shot on the right!

Such cowardly and pathetic behaviour.

In actual fact, Angela Rayner took the microphone from JC to speak, yet somehow didn't "notice" he was there.

Just beneath contempt.

And she walked into the photo, not the other way around.

"Corbyn photobombed her by sliding into the shot unnoticed"

Here is a video of Jeremy speaking while Angela watches him without noticing he's there.

@AngelaRayner there are quite a lot of photos and video, perhaps you might want to clarify whether Jeremy "photobombed" you?

To be fair to Angela, she is looking the other way here. Might not have seen him.

Obviously in this picture Angela is laughing at something Barry said, since Angela would have noticed Jeremy if he had made her laugh.

The important thing is that everyone should support @BarryGardiner & Unite's campaign to ban fire and rehire, and it's good that Angela backs it. It's just a shame she felt she had to behave in this way when she came under pressure.

Unbelievable that Angela didn't notice Jeremy was there before being handed the microphone he was speaking into. Literally unbelievable.

A source close to Angela said "Corbyn photobombed her by sliding into the shot unnoticed." Look how stealthily he slides into shot & remains unnoticed by joking with the crowd to blend in.

Of course, we know Angela "did not talk to him" except for the part when she talks to him.

Seriously, how can she treat him like dirt for political convenience when he promoted her, championed her, and, I think, genuinely liked her?
