It is as tantalising as Sir Clive Woodward's mooted switch from rugby to football. Alastair Campbell, the former (unofficial) deputy prime minister, has said he would not rule out becoming a Member of Parliament. What a mouth-watering prospect for Mr Campbell's numerous enemies in the Westminster village. No doubt they would make him feel welcome if he were to take up a seat on the green benches. And his unique, if rather unforgiving, debating skills would most certainly liven up debates in the chamber. So what the heck: it's been comparatively quiet recently - let's welcome the old bruiser back to the frontline.
