About this deal

Rory lives in Amman [in Jordan, where his wife, Shoshana, works as the CEO of the Turquoise Mountain Foundation, the NGO founded by Stewart, the then Prince of Wales, and Hamid Karzai], so we record online usually. When will the Establishment afford us with a fully codified Constitution available to all Citizens any place any time?

A mix of polemic, analysis and practical advice, this is a political masterclass from a master political commentator and strategist. Throughout his time in Downing Street, Campbell kept a diary which reportedly totalled some 2 million words. He has said that in ten years in the media, and a decade in politics, he saw his respect for the media fall and his respect for politics rise.Theresa May’s proposed deal would almost certainly have disintegrated before the ink of her signature had dried on it.

We’ve got some great clips for the audience tonight,” Campbell tells me, tearing open a bag of crisps. He’s got this habit where he says, ‘Hmm, very good’ [he makes his voice clipped and patrician], and then he moves on. If there is any upside to living within a political system that routinely frustrates and maddens the electorate, it’s the flurry of often intriguing books that get written by optimistic types intent on suggesting: Look, there is another way, you know?

Campbell talks everyone through his Burnley ties, which are, after all, a great deal more sensible than the Privy Counsellor’s uniform Stewart wore to the coronation; there is also some peculiar sporran talk (both men own more than one).

Biography: Alastair Campbell was official spokesman and director of communications and strategy in Tony Blair's government from 1994 to 2003. Over the next five days as an in-patient he was given medication to calm him, and he realised that he had an alcohol problem after seeing a psychiatrist. Alastair Campbell was official spokesman and director of communications and strategy in Tony Blair's government from 1994 to 2003. He is still engaged in politics in Britain and overseas and is also a leading advocate in the field of mental health, and co-presenter of the UK's most popular podcast of 2022, The Rest Is Politics.On the podcast interview with Gillian Keegan that I wrote about earlier this week, I said to her that I felt the government of which she was a member was doing things that even Margaret Thatcher woul.
