Tony Blair’s former spin doctor Alastair Campbell is accused of racism after 'crass and clumsy' tweet

Rather good to see Leftist racism condemned for once

Tony Blair's former spin doctor Alastair Campbell has been accused of racism today after making a 'clumsy' comment about 'non white faces' at a Premier League football match.

Mr Campbell, 58, is best known for masterminding Labour's public relations during Mr Blair's time in power, but is also a fanatical football fan.

After Leicester's 4-0 win over Swansea City yesterday he decided to pay tribute to the ethnic mix of fans at the King Power Stadium.

He tweeted: 'Fantastic to see fairly high proportion of non white faces in the crowd at Leicester City. All too rare at most clubs.'

But the comment has been branded 'crass', 'clumsy' and even 'racist' by critics, who he called idiots and plonkers.

Ian Frankum told him: 'What a ridiculous Tweet, are you in a time machine? It's a reflection of the local community. Simple.'

Mr Campbell told him: 'And most clubs aren't, idiot'.

Mr Frankum replied again: 'Thanks for the insult. Look at the rest of comments and come to West Ham or Arsenal you will see things have changed.'

Mr Campbell replied once more: 'As it happens I am aware of that. But most clubs' crowds do not reflect their communities.'

Mr Frankum signed off with a closing remark: 'Put down the shovel Ally.'

James Sharp told Campbell that his comment was 'a bit crass maybe' and another told him it was a 'clumsy political comment'.

Mark Thomas piled in, adding: 'What does it matter? Stop highlighting race'.

I do not see the offense. Why is it not PC to notice diversity in a crowd of spectators ?

Typical progressive pandering for votes. It is hilarious what white politicians will do to appear they are in sync with minorities to get their votes. The portrayal of Campbell in the movie "The Queen" was spot on, what a myopic narcissistic moron.
