65=.Alastair Campbell, Former spin doctor/diarist
The former Downing Street director of communications hasn't lost his appetite for putting his own spin on current affairs. He just does it through Twitter these days, instead of through national newspapers.
Following his Sky News tête-à-tête with Adam Boulton in 2010, Campbell managed the message almost as soon as he went off-air: "Really worried about Adam Boulton. Wonder if he might need some of my pills." There's rarely a big political story that Campbell doesn't tweet his take on, usually with a brutal directness. He's also keen to reflect and share ideas about mental health and his beloved Burnley FC (hence the "claret" in his user name).
