Michael Howard and Alastair Campbell

Michael Howard takes apart Alastair Campbell in this Newsnight Broadcast- I didn't see the original program but came across it from the excellent Chicken Yoghurt blog- Campbell's response doesn't even reflect upon the idea that he diminished public discourse- he did and if I were him I would not reflect upon my time in politics with any pride.

Brilliant! I didn't see it either, but MH did what all the best demolishers do, he did it quietly, without being rude and it hit the mark. I wonder who the new Alastair Campbell will be? Will there even be one?

I have to say I think Campbell's got a point but that's just me...
