Hemming's Humour

He's been shunted into a siding by the leadership of his party, but that doesn't stop him giving us all a laugh.
'I explained to the journalists that although I would quite like to be leader of the party (although I am also quite happy to remain a backbencher), I would like Charles Kennedy to remain leader for a while. After all I have only been an MP for about 5 1/2 seconds and it would be far too soon to fight a leadership campaign.'
He IS joking, isn't he?

Unfortunately, he is almost certainly being serious.
