Alistair Campbell is a chameleon . A talented one I grant you . But he reinvents himself too often for me. I admire his stance on mental illness tho.

I'm sorry you found him to be such an awful person . And quite contrary to most opinions across the political spectrum . Have you personal or anecdotal evidence for his heinous behaviour ?

Funnily enough I agree with you. Ming is first and foremost a lawyer , not a public servant . Dislike the man . I was merely pointing out he had indeed given feint praise .

I saw the interview and I thought her comment quite innocuous. She said he would be a more entertaining and enjoyable companion than Farage. I agree with her. :D

Didn't know that , thanks. I see a report on FB saying he was in a bad way for a while . Such a shame . The loss of his seat probably hit him very hard indeed. It would appear his demons won .
