With a heavy heart Mr Steerpike must be the bearer of bad of news. James Delingpole, of this parish, has ruled himself out of the running in the Corby by-election for UKIP or any other party.

In light of the growing Draft Delingpole campaign, he told me this afternoon:

‘After much thought: No. I want to spend more time taking drugs with my millionaire rock band manager wife.’

Bring on the the Euro elections 2014.
