So Alastair Campbell's diaries will be published in June. He has always said he wouldn't publish them while Tony Blair is still in Number Ten, so make of that what you will. I suspect that his publishers, the Murdoch-owned HarperCollins have told him that their value will hugely diminish the moment Blair leaves office.
I wonder if there is anything in the diaries which should worry the Dour one. I suppose if I were a conspiracy theorist I might speculate that the publication timetable is deliberately designed to come at the most inconvenient moment for Gordon Brown. Just as well I am not a conspiracy theorist, isn't is?
