Katy Guest: Campbell's doing God after all, and it's my idea of hell

It is interesting that Alastair Campbell, the man who famously doesn't "do God" (except when it suits him), mentioned Psalm 56 when he wrote on his blog last week about the Iraq inquiry. "As I walked through the media scrum," he wrote, "I was glad to have read in the morning an email with Psalm 56 attached... 'What can mortal man do to me? All day long they twist my words, they are always plotting to harm me. They conspire, they lurk, they watch my steps...'." Poor, virtuous Alastair, we all thought, smiting ourselves for our wickedness.

The Sketch: The questions were gentle, the answers opaque

"So, it's a yellow card. The next time it'll be a red card." The nice young man from the Cabinet Office was letting me know there had been complaints about my behaviour. A staff member organising the Chilcot inquiry had felt "intimidated" by me.

Alastair Campbell: He's back!

Labour closes the gap on the Tories in the polls. Gordon Brown is reinvented as a class warrior. David Cameron is given a hiding at PMQs. It can only mean one thing, says Andy McSmith
