“I remember once leaving Tony Blair in his sitting room, shortly after he had authorised a special forces operation, as I prepared to head home. As I reached the door, I looked back and Tony was sitting there, clearly thinking he was alone now, and he was a picture of loneliness and worry.”
Thus speaks Alastair Campbell, in a ‘tough at the top’ piece on Dave’s task in the failed Nigerian rescue.
Actually, The Knife does indeed think that Blair now feels the burden of his decisions, a post on that was how this blog started. The amazing thing is that Campbell is portraying himself as empathetic, able to identify with another’s emotional pain and remorse. Eh?
That’s not the Campbell we know.
