Alastair Campbell

Alastair Campbell

Former Labour Communications Director

For ten years Alastair Campbell was Tony Blair's right hand man as communications strategist and chief spokesman, often witnessing history in the making. He remains a key figure on the political stage, with considerable connections on both sides of the Atlantic.

As the most influential Government advisor Alastair was no stranger to controversy, working the headlines and occasionally making them. He is one of four credited with creating New Labour, fighting numerous battles in their pursuit of modernisation. He was reviled by parts of the media but still respected for his commitment, creativity, loyalty and work rate.

Since resigning Alastair has published three volumes of his diaries as well as other autobiographical books and novels, and written extensively on sport and politics. He is the Editor-at-Large of The New European, has advised several bodies and organisations and stepped up his fundraising efforts for Leukaemia Research (Alastair is chairman of fundraising for the charity). He's also accompanied the British and Irish Lions on their tour of New Zealand.
