    I don't think Alastair Campbell is capable of showing any genuine emotion.

    Well I think it's probably a bit of both. Genuine emotion in the first place but then after watching The Thick of It I can't imagine there was no manipulation afterwards.

    I do feel very sorry for all these politicans. I mean they're just doing a job aren't they and although I may not agree with them I do think they are human whether that's Thatcher or Blair or even *shudder* Cameron.

    Browns childs death...genuine I think..

    but tasteless perhaps.

    Campbells was utter acting.

    Political gain is why.

    Genuine maybe but not necessary in public. I don't want to vote for someone who is going to start bawling like a baby.

    Only believe Brown crying. No matter what people may think of him as a politician he is also human and someone's father. Losing a child is one of the saddest things a parent could go through.

    Campbell's always been a little ****. Nothing he says is ever genuine!

    Think he said it was because he's had enough of having to defend himself and Blair against allegations of changing the documents used to justify war.

    He wasn't blubbering...just acting all emotional saying he's been through a lot with it..inquiry media pressure all that...total manipulation imo. Patently acting. Loathe the man anyway.

    Looks like Labour have really struck the bottom. Things are now so bad that they are clutching to the hope that if they start crying people will feel sorry for them and vote for them.:rolleyes:
