Alastair Campbell, the former Blair spin doctor wheeled out at every opportunity as a ‘Labour’ voice in spite of being at odds with the party’s current direction and leadership, is an ardent advocate of the arrogantly-titled “people’s vote” and an open campaigner to stop Brexit.
Former Prime Minister David Cameron launched the fateful EU referendum – and then immediately resigned when the leave result came in, leaving others to clear up the mess.
Not natural chums, you’d be forgiven for thinking.

Campbell has written that he, Cameron and Clegg were due to do readings at the charity event to raise money for a blood cancer charity, but Clegg was tied up with his new job at Facebook – and was therefore replaced by Piers Morgan.
The SKWAWKBOX hopes plenty of money was raised – but could there be a better metaphor for the elite cosiness and interchangeability of the various faces of the Establishment?
No wonder there’s such appetite for the genuine difference – personally and in policies – that Jeremy Corbyn has brought to the UK’s politics.
