In 2009 he became the founder and editor of the blog LabourList.

But he stepped down as editor after another scandal involving leaked emails.

The messages sent to him by Gordon Brown‘s special adviser, Damian McBride, proposed using the blog to smear senior Conservative MPs and their spouses.

After 35 years, Draper decided to revoke his membership with the Labour Party on August 23, 2019.

He is a published author and has written books such as Blair’s 100 Days and Life Support.

He has a new book called The Psychology of Everyday Life: 50 Bite-Size Insights for Thriving in the Modern World, which is set to be released in June 2020.
