Former director of communications at Number 10 Alastair Campbell has told ITV's Daybreak that his "anger" with Damian McBride has nothing to do with his new book "which will be forgotten in no time" but by his "utterly despicable behaviour" while in government.
Mr Campbell said the tactics employed by Gordon Brown's former spin doctor, who has released his memoirs, was "one of the reasons we now have a Conservative government".
Tony Blair's former communications chief also spoke to the ITV show about Britain's "problem with booze".
In an article for ITV News last week, Mr Campbell said the first step for Britain was to admit it had a drink problem.
