Ilkley Literature Festival presents Alastair Campbell

What does Alastair Campbell really think of the state of British politics today?

The daily shifting landscape of current British politics seems almost unrecognisable from the relative stability of the 1990s and early 2000s when Campbell was a central figure in the Labour government.

An outspoken critic of Brexit, he has been passionately calling for a second referendum – but would this really solve anything?

He was recently expelled from Labour after admitting to voting Lib Dem in the European elections. Does he see a way forward for the party as internal divisions grow ever deeper?

Journalist Ruth Pitt will be putting the tough questions to Tony Blair’s former spokesman and strategist in these times of political turmoil. The author of 15 books, both fiction and non-fiction, Campbell is always relevant and never dull.

This event will have live subtitles presented by Stagetext.
