Alastair Campbell Interview

Stuart Appleby interviews Alastair Campbell, who is best known for being former British Prime Minister Tony Blair‘s spokesman, press secretary and director of communications and strategy.

The interview was published in a freelance capacity for All Out Cricket Magazine (May 2012), where Campbell discusses his love for the sport away from politics and journalism. The King of Spin also talks about his role as a Time to Change Ambassador (which aims to breakdown the stigma surrounding mental illness) and his new book the ‘Happy Depressive‘.
