Yes, for real this time – Alastair Campbell has taken up blogging. He’s writing ‘the diary of the diary’ as part of the website promoting his forthcoming diaries. I only saw him up close a couple of times, but on both occasions he was truly awesome. For all the criticism he took from the Westminster Village hacks, then and still, they were absolutely under his spell. The blog is actually quite a good read, and bodes well for the diary itself itself.
