Alastair Campbell Still Tellling it Like it is

Alastair Campbell has a new web site on which the banner claims he's "a communicator, writer and strategist." He's also started a blog in which he says he's "I have enjoyed some of the exchanges (on facebook) with political opponents, of which I seem to have a few, despite having left the frontline ages ago." This despite also saying "Tories welcome (to the blog). Some of them anyway, if only to be told where they're going wrong.

There's a section on the blog where it talks in the third person about his public speaking. Part of it says. "He is towards the top end of the fee scale for paid public speaking engagements. But he speaks regularly, pro bono, for charitable, political and educational events. "

Pro Bono? Does that mean he likes U2?

Campbell? Bono? U2?

Me neither.

This is obviously a typo.

Campbell means "pro Bonio" and indeed he would promote any other consumer product. Charity may mean lose a little but in other ways he can Winalot.

Welcome back to blogging Richard.

It's quite fun watching the new Labour bloggers come out fighting. Prescott is the big surprise, the Cyber Warrior.

I seem to recall a No. 1 from 1965, 'A World Without Love' by Peter & Gordon. Surely that can't be . . . no, surely not.

Then again, 'I'm Mandy, Fly Me'

Lo and Behold - so I did get a reply (of sorts!)after all.

It will be published, in a day or two, on my own blog...
