Tony Blair is a hopeless Luddite – official

As we recall, Alistair Campbell once had a pop at Tony Blair for his seeming inability to look at a computer screen without completely glazing over.

And now that’s been confirmed by his friend, Rebekah Brooks, giving evidence at the Leveson inquiry into press ethics.

Brooks admitted becoming friendly with Mr Blair after she became editor of The Sun – but they didn’t exchange any emails or texts with him as he didn’t have either a phone or a computer.

Ah, we wondered. When he was prime minister of the UK, the Number 10 website invited us all to email him.  We did – but he never replied – what a surprise.
