Alastair Campbell has a blog. Sorry, as you were, Alastair Campbell does not have a blog. One of the essential features of a blog is interaction, comments. But Big Al does not allow comments - well, he wouldn't, would he?This, therefore, is an announcement, a press release if you will, but it is not a blog. The style suggests I may have happened upon another Jeff or Amanda. Al is a rambler, never using ten words when he can uses a hundred. I have a particular dislike of this type of prose as it puts me to sleep. It is a strange failing for Al, a former tabloid hack. Perhaps he thinks it is good writing. Anyway, as a result of the sedative effect of his words, I can't report on anything he may have written, but I'm sure it's fantastically important.
