Known primarily for posing in his underpants on a gay dating site and for the utterly ridiculous assessment that Delilah is a song about the murder of a prostitute, Chris Bryant is one of the most pointless MPs ever. Educated at Cheltenham College and Oxford and an Anglican priest between 1987 and 1991, this Welsh busybody was rightly described as a “narrow-minded ‘classist gimp’ motivated by the politics of jealousy” by the singer James Blunt in January 2015. Delilah writer Sylvan Whittingham, meanwhile, claimed he “just made up” his claims against her song in February 2015. She has a point and anyone sensible would simply tell Bryant: “Please, just turn yourself off”.
