Campbell’s writing is smooth and a lot of fun, but he’s retrod a lot of the same ground elsewhere, and really this feels more like a collection of things he wanted to say than an actual guide on “But What Can I Do?

I thought the book would launch straight into self help advice about what one can do to help effect change in society. In 2018 Campbell worked for the People's Vote campaign's planning and organisation of a march on Parliament on 20 October, which drew an estimated 250,000 people [58] onto the streets. Thus, the central problem of the work is revealed: it doesn't actually answer the question But What (More) Can I Do? Since his work for Blair, Campbell has continued to act as a freelance advisor to a number of governments and political parties, including Edi Rama, the Prime Minister of Albania. The march was described by the media as the second biggest ever, after the protest against the Iraq war in 2003.

He persuaded Cabinet Secretary Sir Robin Butler that government communications had to be modernised, and the government set up the Mountfield Review.

I often get told I should go into Politics to make a difference , To be honest though I ha no idea which party I would join . You may disagree with AC politics but it is much harder to disagree with his analysis of our politics and the critical sate it is in now. Campbell skillfully lays out the scale and complexity of these challenges, emphasizing the urgency of action.

Facilitated by the brilliant Julia Macfarlane of ABC News and joined on stage by students from UCL Political Science, Alastair will seek to address the challenge laid out in the sub-title of his book: Why Politics Has Gone So Wrong, and How YOU Can Help Fix It. A fantastic heaping on realism and optimism that makes you want to get off the sofa and do something. Johnson’s rise] has nothing to do with the genuine needs and interests of the country and everything to do with his ambition, so though we might well already have been on a path of decline, and though I think austerity was overdone for political rather than economic reasons, I cannot help thinking that if Cameron had won the referendum and stayed on as PM, the country would not be in the mess to which Johnson and Brexit took it.

Somehow, I still do allow the pessimism to triumph over my optimism and say, “it really is not that easy.

Kelly's view that the government exaggerated the Iraqi threat in the " Iraq Dossier", told to BBC journalists Andrew Gilligan and Susan Watts, had led to Campbell battling with the BBC.
