Was Alistair Campbell a freelance gigolo?


Asks Liz Hodgkinson.

She apparently interviewed the then unknown student/teacher
Alastair Campbell in his pre-Labour spin years and her piece was published by the Sun in May 1980. She claims that when Campbell’s biographer Peter Oborne tried to find the cutting, it had mysteriously disappeared from all records.  However, Liz kept a copy of her original article. It is well worth a read -  still trying to work out whether the innuendo of the opening line was intentional ("If
you are young, handsome and hard up, it is all too easy to become a
gigolo.")
