A radio presenter and former Tory candidate who was sacked as a regional daily columnist five years ago is to begin writing for the newspaper again.
Iain, who originally found fame as a political blogger, previously wrote a weekly diary column for the Norwich-based EDP before being told it had “run its course” in 2013.
The new column will launch in the first week of next month and appear each Wednesday.
“Matt Kelly is its editor and it is he who is behind giving me this column, and I’m hugely grateful to him.
“Matt tells me he wants me to be ‘provocative’, ‘non partisan’ and relate what I write about to East Anglia. No pressure then.”
Iain was brought up in Essex and stood for Parliament in North Norfolk in 2005, losing to Liberal Democrat Norman Lamb.
He added: “I’m delighted to be returning to the pages of a Norfolk institution and just as delighted to join the pages of the EADT whose circulation is predominantly in Suffolk but also goes into Essex too.”
