There could perhaps be no better health warning about the work of a journalist who does all he can to expose the skulduggery of spin doctors than Alastair Campbell’s description: “that tick Nick Jones.”* Nicholas Jones, an industrial and political correspondent for the BBC for thirty years has written extensively about the often troubled relationship between politicians and the news media. Jones continues to offer a personal and independent assessment of events and issues affecting life at Westminster and the ethics of journalism.
* Tick: “parasitic insect...unpleasant or despicable person” (Oxford English Dictionary). See The Alastair Campbell Diaries (volume two)
