Ex-Tony Blair spinner Alastair Campbell branded 'sick' and 'beyond help' by Tories after he questions how ill Boris Johnson really was when he caught Covid in 2020 and spent three days in intensive care

Tony Blair's former spin chief was branded 'sick' today after he questioned how ill Boris Johnson really was when he was hospitalised with Covid. 

Alastair Campbell was accused of being 'beyond help' after a tasteless remark on Twitter this morning.

The ex-Labour PR chief, famed for his potty mouth and angry outbursts, responded to a follower who asked 'does anyone actually believe that Johnson nearly died of Covid?' by saying 'no'.

Mr Johnson spend a week in St Thomas's Hospital in March and April 2020 after contracting coronavirus, including three days in intensive care after suffering breathing difficulties. 

In response to Mr Campbells remark, ex-culture secretary Nadine Dorries, a close supporter of the former PM, wrote: 'There is a horrible hatred and sickness which resides in the heart of some people who are so partisan and so politically obsessed, they lose all sense of humanity. You are beyond help or hope.'

But Mr Campbell doubled down, replying: 'There is a loathing of the damage your hero has done to the country, its politics and our reputation in the world. 

'You are beyond help or hope that you cannot see it. Ps survey of 2900 people at the Palladium last night. Johnson honest 1 Johnson dishonest 2899.'

He is a close friend of Gary Lineker, the BBC sports presenter last week at the centre of a row with the Government over its Rwanda migrant relocation strategy.

His podcast, The Rest is Politics, is produced by Goalhanger Podcasts, co-owned by Lineker.
