View image in fullscreen Onstage at the Royal Hall, Harrogate, Alastair Campbell and Rory Stewart view a clip from Newsnight when Campbell lost his temper with Alex Phillips, the former Brexit party MEP. He continued to act as an advisor to Mr Blair and the Labour Party, including during subsequent election campaigns. Passionate about sport, he was written about different sports for The Times, the Irish Times and Esquire magazine. Campbell said that from that day onwards he counted each day that he did not drink alcohol, and did not stop counting until he had reached thousands. The Scottish Nationalists, who had more realistic prospects of doing well in a general election, and using their success to step up their fight for another independence referendum, fell even more willingly into the trap.

We foster an environment where work on Europe can flourish, aiming to maximise its reach and relevance - internally and externally. He has made a film too about his love of bagpipe music, which ended with him performing in front of 2,500 people in Glasgow’s Royal Concert Hall. Subsequent press coverage of the book's release included coverage of what Campbell had chosen to leave out, particularly in respect of the relationship between Blair and his chancellor and successor Gordon Brown. Campbell appeared as a mentor in the BBC Two series The Speaker in April 2009, offering his advice on persuasive speaking.Who find politics inaccessible, incomprehensible even, and so turn away from it in frustration and disgust. I think it would actually make an interesting interview as I’m sure there must be many hard working folks like myself who just stay away from politics as they have ideas not political opinions . He created a Strategic Communications Unit which gave Downing Street the power to co-ordinate all government activity, using what became known as "the grid" as its main apparatus. He has since published eight volumes of the full diaries, and a special edition of the diaries focused on the Northern Ireland peace process, ‘The Irish Diaries‘. 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.

Interestingly, although the campaign reached across the generations, it was to a large extent driven by young people working for two particular groups, “For our Future’s Sake” and “Our Future, Our Choice”, FFS and OFOC (variations on the same joke). After 120 pages of eminently convincing doom-mongering, the book essentially becomes a How To guide, hoping to inspire future generations of activists to rise up and, ultimately, lead us out of this mess that the old guard – white men, mostly, privately educated – have landed us in. Piers Morgan will likely hate it on principle, and Boris Johnson may choose to tear out its pages to use the next time he has a heavy cold.

He was an adviser to the People's Vote campaign, campaigning for a public vote on the final Brexit deal. If a soft Brexit was possible in 2016 or even 2017, by the time we launched People’s Vote, such a compromise was the least popular of all the options. Whether it’s Brexit here, or guns and abortion in the US, the shouting drowns out the debates that we need to have. BBC documentary maker Michael Cockerell produced a full-length documentary about Campbell's media operation, News From Number Ten, which Cockerell said attracted more coverage than any of the other films he made.

First a handful, then dozens, then hundreds, before, in 1939, they produced a book, Alcoholics Anonymous: The Story of How More Than One Hundred Men Have Recovered from Alcoholism. And all because one man – Bill – had the insight that he needed another alcoholic – Bob – to guide him through tricky moments. He lives mainly in London, with his partner of forty-three years, journalist and education campaigner Fiona Millar.

In 1982, Campbell moved to the London office of the Daily Mirror, Fleet Street's sole remaining big-circulation supporter of the Labour Party. Campbell was a guest presenter of Good Morning Britain from 10 to 12 May 2021, where he presented with Susanna Reid. Campbell has launched a regular series of 'Instagram live' broadcasts, in which he vented his criticisms of Boris Johnson.
