In March 2017, the newspaper The New European announced that it had appointed Campbell as editor-at-large. Alistair proposes that we can’t stand on the side-lines when we are confronted with policies that serve the interests of the few and when faced with the culture of lies from Governments that works to undermine democratic values.

In 2007, he appeared on Comic Relief Does The Apprentice as project manager, having several clashes with Piers Morgan including his comment of "again? Who find politics inaccessible, incomprehensible even, and so turn away from it in frustration and disgust. In addition to establishing The New European, he was one of the early movers in the People's Vote campaign for a referendum on the outcome of the Brexit negotiations. Campbell later put this down to stress over uncertainty as to whether he and his colleagues would lose their jobs. It emerged McGuinness was helping Campbell with a novel which had an Irish Republican Army (IRA) active service unit as part of the plot.

Ultimately, where I think the whole thing fell down was in the formal leadership within the campaign, and in the erratic leadership provided by the politicians outside it. is twofold: to explain why things have gone so wrong, and to show what we can to help put them right. Alastair John Campbell (born 25 May 1957) is a British journalist, author, strategist, broadcaster and activist, known for his political roles during Tony Blair's leadership of the Labour Party. In response, shadow minister Dawn Butler stated that it was common knowledge that voting for another party would result in automatic exclusion.

Telling someone they have no right to a view is not a great opening gambit if you’re hoping to win them over. His family moved to Leicester in 1968, and he went to school there until going to Cambridge University in 1975. He then worked briefly for Today under new ownership in 1994 before being asked by Tony Blair to be his press secretary when Mr Blair became leader of the Labour Party. We must all do what we can to find such people, inspire them, build them up and get them into the political arena so they can deliver the massive kick up the backside it needs.He continues to advise progressive parties, in particular in the Balkans, where he has for some years been a strategic director for the Albanian Socialist Party, who won a landslide victory in June 2013, making Edi Rama Prime Minister, a second term four years later, and a third in 2021. Having graduated from Cambridge University in modern languages, he went into journalism, principally with the Mirror Group.

He was an adviser to the People's Vote campaign, campaigning for a public vote on the final Brexit deal.Having recovered and become teetotal, he told Blair about his alcoholism, which Blair did not see as a problem.

Campbell expressed an intention to one day publish the diaries in fuller form, and indicated in the introduction to the book that he did not wish to make matters harder for Brown in his new role as Prime Minister, or to damage the Labour Party.

Yet whenever I look at my inbox or visit a school or college, or chat to fellow passengers on a train or plane, I also sense so much energy, so much commitment, so much passion for better causes and ideas.

The government later accused the BBC of behaving improperly for allowing Campbell to appear as a more in-depth version of his diaries was due to be published the following week, and a Downing Street spokesman told The Guardian, "Campbell seemed to be on because he's flogging a book next week, so the BBC haven't behaved entirely properly here. In his autobiography, Blair would later reveal that Campbell had coined the name " New Labour" and described Campbell as a "genius". Stewart is posh, highly controlled, stoical and to a degree unemotional, but his gaze is firmly outwards, his interest in the world intense and wide-ranging.
