James Delingpole, a journalist and rightwing polemicist, defended “squealing” on Cameron’s drug use – Delingpole told Lord Ashcroft’s co-author, Isabel Oakeshott, that the pair had smoked cannabis and listened to Supertramp – while they were students at Oxford. Writing in the Sunday Times, Delingpole said that he had been heavily criticised for breaking the “wretched omerta that the Cameron set so fetishise for all the world as if they’d been at [code-breaking centre] Bletchley Park”.
The unofficial biography of Cameron, written by the former Conservative party deputy chairman and donor Ashcroft, dominated headlines this week, after a series of claims in the book about the prime minister’s involvement in drug-taking, a bizarre dinner club initiation ritual that reportedly involved putting his penis in the mouth of a dead pig, and that he knew of the peer’s offshore tax status earlier than previously stated.
