Alastair Campbell, a former British government press secretary for Tony Blair and director of communications at Downing Street from 1997 to 2003, said that he would not sit in the same room as BBC political editor Laura Kuenssberg because she was too biased towards anti-Brexit campaigners during an event held by Institute for Government on Monday evening. He also called Andrew Bowie MP “a disgrace” when he stood up against his remarks stating they were offensive and sexist before being forced out of the stage by other people present there including BBC’s Caroline Lucas who demanded him back onto it but Alistiar refused shouting ‘I’m leaving’.
Andrew Bowie, a conservative member of parliament from North Staffordshire was shouted down by Alastair Campbell over Brexit denial.
Campbell is former British Prime Minister Tony Blair’s ex-communications director and currently an associate editor for the New European newspaper where he writes about why Britain should remain in Europe. He expressed his views on Twitter after being invited to speak at The Lowry arts center in Manchester with Andrew Bowie who has been very vocal against remaining part of EU during debates around PM Theresa May triggering article 50 this week which will start two years long negotiations that would lead UK out if it’s membership within bloc.
