Campbell said that he had waited until Labour were in opposition before appearing on the show and that the date was a coincidence as it was the only time he was free. 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. Campbell claimed in June 2013 that Tony Blair had "greater commitment to wartime truth than Winston Churchill". Facilitated by the brilliant Julia Macfarlane of ABC News and joined on stage by students from UCL Political Science, Alastair will seek to address the challenge laid out in the sub-title of his book: Why Politics Has Gone So Wrong, and How YOU Can Help Fix It.

Recently, outside the Parliament Hill Lido on Hampstead Heath, where I swim most mornings, I had two random encounters, the first with someone I know, the second with someone I had never met before, and have never seen since. Somehow, everything is on the outside with Campbell, even as he looks ever inwards, a state of affairs that only makes Rory Stewart’s John Buchan-esque international-man-of-mystery persona seem the more exotic. Campbell is widely reported to have coined the phrase "the people's princess" and to have persuaded the queen to make her broadcast to the nation more personal, not least by using the phrase "speaking as a grandmother".He then became Downing Street director of communications and spokesman for the Labour Party (2000–2003).

He acted as a campaign advisor to successive French Presidents, François Hollande and Emmanuel Macron. Campbell took part in the Mental Health Foundation's takeover of Channel Four for Mental Health Awareness Week 2017, acting as a celebrity continuity announcer. What follows is, in essence, a reprise of what I heard earlier, with the addition of a few knobs and whistles.Campbell voted Labour in the 2019 general election, having been part of a failed tactical voting campaign aimed at preventing Johnson from winning a majority. He had played the bagpipes at a concert in Glasgow earlier in the year, staged entirely by musicians with links to Tiree, where his father was born and raised. Stewart has flown in from Amman this morning – tomorrow, he’ll leave for Japan – and for all that his back is the straightest I’ve ever seen, there’s something frail about him: I sense him battling weariness. And they organised a mass lobby of Parliament that was so large and so effective that the serjeant-at-arms complained about them.

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 . Throughout his time in Downing Street, Campbell kept a diary which reportedly totalled some 2 million words. Since The Rest Is Politics (AKA TRIP) began, Campbell’s face has, he goes on, become an awful lot more recognisable. Campbell was a guest presenter of Good Morning Britain from 10 to 12 May 2021, where he presented with Susanna Reid. So far, they’ve taken it on the road on four previous occasions, having performed it live at the Leicester Square theatre in London, the Blackpool Winter Gardens, the London Palladium, and the Royal Albert Hall.At the Palladium, they shifted 4,500 tickets for two nights in six minutes (faster than the Foo Fighters, someone will tell me later). Having recovered and become teetotal, he told Blair about his alcoholism, which Blair did not see as a problem. He is regularly involved in events with the club and was involved in rescuing the club from potential bankruptcy. Thank you for the stuff you do, your writings, The Rest is , etc I have just finished Russell Jones A Decade of Tory and wonder if you might discuss the book on The Rest.
