Shortly after Maxwell drowned in November 1991, Campbell punched The Guardian journalist Michael White after White joked about "Captain Bob, Bob, Bob.

It's a question regularly posed to Alastair Campbell, not least in reaction to The Rest is Politics, the chart-topping podcast he presents with Rory Stewart. Later in 2003, commenting on weapons of mass destruction (WMDs) in Iraq, Campbell said, "Come on, you don't seriously think we won't find anything? Alastair Campbell was official spokesman and director of communications and strategy in Tony Blair's government from 1994 to 2003.

Along with Tony Blair, Campbell has also provided consultancy services to the government of Kazakhstan on "questions of social economic modernisation. He is active in social media where he does regular ‘Campbell’s Rambles’ live on Instagram, and his daily ‘Tree of the Day’ posts attract a widespread following around the world. In 2001, Campbell claimed that the days of the bog standard comprehensive school were over due to educational policies of the Labour government. He took up running in 2003 at the instigation of his sons and he has run the London Marathon, the Great North Run, and the Great Ethiopian Run, and completed several full triathlons, all for Bloodwise, his best friend John Merritt having been killed by leukaemia.

Having recovered and become teetotal, he told Blair about his alcoholism, which Blair did not see as a problem. In addition to establishing The New European, he was one of the early movers in the People's Vote campaign for a referendum on the outcome of the Brexit negotiations. K. aid is still being provided to Gaza and that while investigations are ongoing, UNRWA operations can continue. He is a sought after speaker at events around the world, specialising in strategic communications, leadership, team building and crisis management.Who find politics inaccessible, incomprehensible even, and so turn away from it in frustration and disgust. Other nominees were Ken Clarke, William Hague, Anna Soubry and Dominic Grieve, but he was way ahead. When you believe so much in the rightness of your cause that you lose sight of the people you need to win over, and the different methods and arguments that might be needed, you’re on a journey to nowhere.

Three days later, Laws resigned his post following revelations about possible irregularities in his expenses claims in The Telegraph the day before. The government later accused the BBC of behaving improperly for allowing Campbell to appear as a more in-depth version of his diaries was due to be published the following week, and a Downing Street spokesman told The Guardian, "Campbell seemed to be on because he's flogging a book next week, so the BBC haven't behaved entirely properly here. It’s a valid criticism – in that such a deal would have been far better than the disastrous one we ended up with. In the run-up to the Iraq War, Campbell was involved in the preparation and release of the " September Dossier" in September 2002 and the " Iraq Dossier" (nicknamed the "Dodgy Dossier") in February 2003. In the wake of the referendum in which the UK voted to leave the EU, he helped set up a new newspaper, The New European.

The populist leaders who have been dominant at home and abroad are a symptom of rotten politics and media cultures, as well as a cause.
