Campbell: E-mail row 'silly fuss'

Mr Campbell is proving controversial once again
Ex-No 10 media chief Alastair Campbell is at the centre of a new political row over an e-mail containing a four-letter outburst aimed at BBC journalists.
Mr Campbell sent the missive by mistake to BBC2's Newsnight after it sought to question his role in Labour's controversial poster campaign.

He later contacted the show saying the original e-mail had been sent in error and that it was all a "silly fuss".

Mr Campbell has recently re-joined Labour's election campaign.

The e-mail was revealed the day after Peter Mandelson, former Labour minister and now a European Commissioner, warned the BBC to steer away from "demonising" Mr Campbell.

Mr Campbell messaged Newsnight after the programme investigated claims that Labour's advertising agency TBWA was blaming him for controversy over its campaign posters.

The images, including one of flying pigs and another of what critics claim depicted Tory leader Michael Howard as Fagin, prompted accusations of anti-Semitism, claims denied by Labour.
apart?

Mr Campbell's e-mail, which was apparently intended for a party official, suggested they should get Trevor Beattie, TBWA's boss, to issue a statement.

In it, he said: "Just spoke to trev. think tbwa shd give statement to newsnight saying party and agency work together well and nobody here has spoken to standard. Posters done by by tbwa according to polotical (sic) brief. Now **** off and cover something important you twats!"

The e-mail was sent by mistake to Newsnight journalist Andrew McFadyen.

Realising his error, Mr Campbell then e-mailed Mr McFadyen pointing out the mistake, but suggesting presenter Jeremy Paxman would have seen the funny side.

He said: "Not very good at this e-mail Blackberry malarkey. Just looked at log of sent messages, have realised e-mail meant for colleagues at TBWA has gone to you. For the record, furst (sic) three sentences of email spot on. No row between me and trevor.

"Posters done by them according to our brief. I dreamt up flying pigs. Pigs not great but okay in the circs of Tories promising tax cuts and spending rises with the same money. TBWA made production.

"Campbell swears shock. Final sentence of earlier e-mail probablyy a bit colourful and personal considering we have never actually met but I'm sure you share the same sense of humour as your star presenter Mr P.

"Never known such a silly fuss since the last silly fuss but there we go. Must look forward not back."

'Talented' and 'polite'

Later the prime minister's spokesman was asked by journalists about his view on Mr Campbell's use of abusive language.

The spokesman said: "The person you are referring to is capable of speaking for himself and he no longer works in government."

Foreign Secretary Jack Straw said he had always had "very good and polite relations" with Mr Campbell, who he described as "very talented".

But on the former spin doctor's use of language, Mr Straw said: "I do know the odd journalist who has occasionally used the odd word that would probably be inappropriate in some circumstances. Maybe I mix with the wrong kind of journalists."

Liam Fox, Tory co-chairman, said the return of Mr Campbell was a sign of new "sinister and underhand tactics" by Labour.

Typical Campbell. If it had been the other way round and he received an e-mail saying he was a cnut (which he is) then he would be demanding heads and apologies form everyone.

This person must be the most dangerous man in the country. So much power and absolutely no responsibility.

if somebody slotted the shiit, I for one would buy him/her a drink.

He is an evil, lying, manipulative, egotistical w@nker of the first order. As Hackle said, all that power with no responsibility should have never been allowed to happen. However monsters have a habit of destroying their makers.( I've read Frankensteins Monster you know! :wink: )

....And just WTF has it got to do with Mandelbum? I thought he'd nobbed off to be an EU Commissioner, or is he still trying to make yet another comeback in this excuse for a government ?

" Alistair Campbell
(Born ?)
The son of a Pennine veterinary surgeon, Alistair Campbell cites living in the Pennines, about equidistant from Bradford, Leeds and Burnley for the first 11 years of his life, as the reason for his avid support of Burnley Football Club.
By the age of 29 he had already worked for a number of publications as a journalist, including the Sunday Today newspaper, and under the pseudonym "the Riviera Gigolo", for the pornography magazine Forum, writing from France. His career in the media continued successfully and he soon became political editor of the Daily Mirror.
By 1994 he had moved from his job as political editor of the Mirror to take a major pay cut to work for Tony Blair, then the Labour Leader of the Opposition. He had also been one of the former Labour leader Neil Kinnock's closest advisers.
With the Labour election victory in 1997, he became the prime minister's chief press secretary and began to create a formidable press office where he emerged as the government's brightest and most influential so-called 'spin doctors'.
Campbell resigned as Press Secretary after the heated confrontation with the BBC concerning details of the reasons for Britain's involvement in the second Iraq war in 2003. He faced intense investigations to explain major discrepancies in the evidence which he had originally given to the Hutton Inquiry into the suicide of weapons expert, David Kelly. It was alleged that Campbell had actively played down the number of changes he asked intelligence chiefs to make to the controversial "sexed-up" dossier on Iraq's weapons of mass destruction. In this way, it was alleged, Campbell intentionally created a bias to the final report in favour of Britain going to war in Iraq, in line with the prime minister's wishes, but probably without his knowledge.
Alistair Campbell continues as a supporter of Burnley FC and is currently pursuing a career in broadcasting. "

Okay, hands up. Who else (apart from me) thought that naughty Alistair's second swearword was 'cnunts'? Sadly, according the today's online Torygraph, it was just a feeble and disappointing, 'tw@ts'.

Just go to prove that you should never trust a bloke who doesn't swear properly.

The ******** pink **** that **** ****!!!! :D
