Too little too late

There’s a certain irony here I think.

If Alistair Campbell had been this reasonable when he was spinning for Blair then Brown might not be as deep in the shit as he currently is.

Or is that the whole point?

Alistair Campbell makes a joke

Ageing pitbull Alistair Campbell is an unlikely source of intentional humour but this had me chuckling…

I barely know Mr McBride. I was vaguely aware of him being around the Treasury when I was in Number 10, and vaguely aware that he was closer to the Charlie Whelan school of strategic communications than my own. (I’m aware we tend to get lumped together in some sections, but I know the differences, even if they don’t.)
