Speaking at the time he said: “Well, after what must be 35+ years I have left the Labour party.
“I didn’t seem to have a choice, as you can’t really be a member of a party and then vote for another. It’s not just about Corbyn, I’m not sure I’ve felt “Labour” for some time.
“It seems to me that the party is basically stupid and then every now and again sensible people have to take it over so it can win but what an effort that is and it never lasts.”
Mr Draper married Kate in 2005, and the couple has two children together
