Alastair Campbell

Alastair Campbell invented the phrase “New Labour” and helped guide Tony Blair to power in 1997. As Downing Street press secretary, and later as Director of Communications, he helped redefine what political communication would mean in the new millennium.


In this conversation, he talks about the government’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic, life with an addiction, his love of Burnley FC and his hopes for Labour under new leader Keir Starmer.
