Former Labour spin guru Alastair Campbell believes New Labour is not dead.

In a feisty television encounter with Andrew Neill, he said: 'If Labour and the Lib Dems can do a deal and if the Tories can't form a government, then that's an option. All the party leaders are going to have to reflect on the result.
