I’m bored. Can we go home now please? ...

A good day to draw attention to the sub-title of Vol 8 of my diaries, covering 2010-2015. Rise and Fall of the Olympic Spirit. It felt so wonderful to be British during that incredible opening ceremony and the Games and Paralympic Games which followed were the best ever. The country has changed so much for the worse since then. And to those tempted to say ‘why don’t you F off and live in France then …?’ We can’t. 90 days max. Congrats to Tokyo for their opening ceremony. Considering the difficulties and restrictions it was a very special event. I loved that the last two athletes to carry the torch were a female Paralympian and @naomiosaka who has done a lot to shine a light on mental health. ...

Tree of the Day to my friend Lucie … ‘looks like broccoli’ ...

Alastair Campbell is a sought after public speaker in Britain and abroad. Drawing on his experience of ten years alongside Tony Blair, and his considerable understanding of the modern media, he specialises in strategy, making change, dealing with the media and crisis management – often at the same time.

Dozens of testimonials from a wide variety of businesses, organisations and conference organisers have paid tribute to his skills as an engaging and innovative speaker able to apply his insights and experience to the work of others with wit and passion. He liaises directly with event organisers in advance so as to tailor a presentation to their specific needs. Often controversial, and always prepared to speak his mind, he is willing, indeed keen, to make a question and answer session part of his presentations.

He is towards the top end of the fee scale for paid public speaking engagements. But he speaks regularly, pro bono, for charitable, political and educational events.
