Alastair Campbell has been known to boast of his “played three, won three” record when it comes to co-ordinating general election campaigns for the Labour Party.
As part of Tony Blair’s inner circle, he enjoyed three consecutive election victories in 1997, 2001 and 2005.
So he’s not a bad person to advise the current crop of Labour would-bes, especially if he’s filling party coffers at the same time.
On Thursday evening, Mr Blair’s former spin doctor will entertain a gaggle of Labour enthusiasts in Marylebone with a talk titled How To Win Elections.
Tickets for the gig at Indian restaurant Indali Lounge, in Baker Street, have been going for £60 each, with all the money raised set to support barrister Sarah Sackman’s electoral assault on Finchley and Golders Green.
