Alastair Campbell’s Diaries: Exclusive Serialisation

Filed under: Uncategorized — notsaussure @ 4:45 pm

In a world exclusive, The First Post has obtained the on-line serialisation rights to Alastair Campbell’s memoires. The first extract appears today.

These are not, I hasten to add, the ones about his experiences with Tony Blair. No, these were written rather earlier in his career; they were, in fact, written back when he was a cash-strapped student at Caius and published in Forum magazine, a sister publication of Bob Guccione’s Penthouse, from 1978 to 1981.

In 1979, for example, he wrote an account of ‘what I did on my holidays’, when he seems to have travelled round Europe, supporting himself by teaching English and playing the pipes, with great effect on the ladies, apparently.

The literary result is Busking with Bagpipes: Alastair Campbell on a little known aphrodisiac – the dangling pipes of Scotland, . Here’s Al in Amsterdam:

“She bit at pubic hairs as her warm mouth came to the end of its travels along my tumbling erection.”He loves the erotic intensity of “sub-kilt nakedness” as he calls it . “It is never better satisfied than by a female hand sliding its way up my thigh. She asks and I say find out. Her shock at reaching the tip of my unclothed penis, my delight as she peels back the foreskin, the sporran shooting out. These are preludes to Common Market copulation.”

There’s loads more … it’s great stuff.



  1. First Post is becoming a must-read, their content and marketing improves all the time.

  2. I have a very disturbing image in my head now.
    Please tell me he never starred in films…

  3. Be a pretty memorable one, wouldn’t it? Sort of in the ‘Confessions of a Windowcleaner’ genre (particularly given the date) only about this crazed young Scotsman who wanders round Europe in full highland dress, complete with bagpipes, and his comic misadventures as he tries to have his wicked way with the Fräuleins and Señoritas.
