Launched in June 2016, originally a four-weekly publication, The New European which can also be found online at theneweuropean.co.uk/contributor/alastair-campbell, has gone from strength to strength since its small beginnings and can now be purchased from your local newsagent every Thursday. The journalist, author, activist and politician Alastair Campbell is the Editor in Chief of the publication and writes a regular column and a diary piece in the paper. His articles are factual, interesting, coherent, informative, sometimes controversial but always popular. His latest article entitled “The double standards at the heart of Tory Britain”, was a hard-hitting, no-nonsense piece about Gary Lineker and his stand on what he had said about the Government’s policy on migrants.Thank you for reading this post, don't forget to subscribe!

Alastair’s Podcast can be downloaded through the website, Apple, or Spotify.
