We have witnessed leaders who can't - or shouldn't be allowed to - lead, policies that are either self-serving or don't work, and world views that are corrosive or short. His family moved to Leicester in 1968, and he went to school there until going to Cambridge University in 1975. Campbell began his career as a reporter at the Mirror, leaving journalism to become Blair’s press secretary shortly before the 1997 election. So many people seem to be saying: ‘I really care, I want to make a difference, I just don’t know how to do it. Yes, he has since written many books, including novels and a volume about mental health (he suffers from depression).

Campbell said that he had waited until Labour were in opposition before appearing on the show and that the date was a coincidence as it was the only time he was free. In March 2022, Campbell launched The Rest is Politics podcast with Rory Stewart, a former Conservative Member of Parliament and candidate in the 2019 Conservative Party leadership election. In January 2014, Campbell announced that he was joining British GQ with a brief to conduct interviews with figures from "politics.Then they discuss the National Conservatism Conference, an event attended by Tory rightwingers (“horrifying”, says Stewart). They now also do an interview channel, Rest Is Politics Leading, and have talked to a number of former Prime Ministers, including John Major, Theresa May and Tony Blair, leading international politicians, among them Hillary Clinton, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Francois Hollande, and a host of British figures from politics and beyond. Along with Tony Blair, Campbell has also provided consultancy services to the government of Kazakhstan on "questions of social economic modernisation. I think it would actually make an interesting interview as I’m sure there must be many hard working folks like myself who just stay away from politics as they have ideas not political opinions .

In chapters entitled Resist Cynicism and Develop a Campaigning Mindset, he cajoles and pleads younger people from every sector of society to overcome their disillusion, and to adopt the Obama mindset of Yes We Can.In 2000, he took a period of leave to walk across Asia, the Afghanistan leg of which he later described in his acclaimed book The Places in Between . He had played the bagpipes at a concert in Glasgow earlier in the year, staged entirely by musicians with links to Tiree, where his father was born and raised. The minister who had been scheduled to appear was the then Chief Secretary to the Treasury David Laws, who Campbell produced a picture of during the programme. Who feel such a lack of connection with the top politicians paraded across the media the whole time that they assume there is no place in politics for 'people like me. It’s a valid criticism – in that such a deal would have been far better than the disastrous one we ended up with.
