Tony Blair’s former aide also told talkRADIO’s Julia Hartley-Brewer that Prime Minister Boris Johnson was a “clown”. Mr Campbell argued that both the current leaders of the two main political parties are “flawed”. He cited Jeremy Corbyn’s failure to deal with anti-Semitism in his party and Boris Johnson launching his campaign on lies as reasons they were both far from ideal Prime Ministers.
Alastair Campbell said: “What happens after the election if Jeremy Corbyn was to win that’s one outcome.
“If there was to be a hung Parliament which I think is a possible outcome out of this election that is another outcome.
“I interviewed John McDonnell for GQ recently and he was very clear that if Labour loses the election he doesn’t see how himself and Jeremy Corbyn stay on.
“But the fact that we are going into an election and even have those discussions shows to my mind that what we have got is a country that is looking at all the parties and saying I don’t really want any of you.”
He continued: “Whenever I look as I did last night and I saw that clown Boris Johnson lying his way through his launch outside Number 10 and then his after-dinner speech in Birmingham.
“I think if that guy is the best that we can have as Prime Minister for the next few years.
“Ultimately, we’re in one of those elections where I don’t think anybody in the country is voting for someone thinking this is going to be fantastic.
“I think they are all flawed I think there are very few of them I would put in the really high category of statesmen, stateswoman politicians.”
“I really don’t think Johnson deserves a majority and I hope he doesn’t get one.”
Last night on ITV’s Peston, a breakdown in voting groups was revealed that showed the Labour vote will be squeezed by the other Remain parties.
Anushka Asthana explained: “What you can immediately see is that the Remain side is much more dived than the Leave one.
“Labour is much more squeezed by these parties than the Conservatives have been so clearly that is a big advantage to Boris Johnson.”
