Alastair Campbell Evidence to Leveson

Guido has obtained the text of Alastair Campbell’s evidence due to be delivered to the Leveson Inquiry this coming Wednesday. It is a wide-ranging tour de force critique of the media which develops themes that we first saw in Tony Blair’s “feral beasts” speech. He focuses his ire on the Murdoch press, singling out Trevor Kavanagh, the Daily Mail’s editor Paul Dacre and Express owner Richard Desmond for sustained criticism. In an explosive claim the former political correspondent of the Daily Mirror accuses his former paper of serial criminal activities.
