The former Labour Party spin doctor was on stage announcing winners at the PRCA National Awards 2021, which took place at the InterContinental London, Park Lane last night (Tuesday). The black tie event, attended by more than 800 key players in the world of PR and communications, is held every November to “recognise the talent and impact of individuals, teams and campaigns from the best of the UK and international PR industries”.

But Euro Guido has posted a video along with a short text to its website to describe how Mr Campbell “delivered a mood-dampening rant against the Government, specifically referencing the Brexit Transition team who were in attendance after being nominated for three awards”.

The 28-second clip posted on the website appears to show the staunch Remainer taking a swipe at the group, saying they should be “ashamed”.

Mr Campbell is heard saying: “You should be ashamed of yourselves, but I forgive you.

“This is a great PR challenge.

“It is no secret I don’t like this Government, I can’t stand this Government.

“I don’t trust this Government with a lot of things.

“However, that means there is a lot of things we can do for ourselves and that we can do for each other.”

But Mr Campbell was left-red faced after the the Brexit Transition team won two out of the three prizes they were nominated for – the International Campaign Award and the in-house B2B Award.

This left the Brexit-hater “having to congratulate them through gritted teeth”, according to Euro Guido.

The website also added in its online post: “He (Campbell) went on to announce the Public Sector Award, won by Anchor – a company he joked rhymes with Boris.”

Following the result of the Brexit referendum in June 2016, Mr Campbell immediately stated he thought it was “the worst decision Britain had made in his lifetime”.

He quickly vowed to change people’s minds on the result of the historic vote, and was one of the early movers in the People’s Vote campaign for a referendum on the outcome of the Brexit negotiations.

Recently, the arch-Remoaner even took a huge swipe at Brexit after his train was cancelled early one morning last month.

He took to Twitter to vent his frustration over his train to Leeds being cancelled due to “failed locomotive”.

The former Labour spin doctor, who had been on his way to appear on Channel 4 show Steph’s Packed Lunch, claimed it was a “metaphor for Brexit Covid Britain”.

Mr Campbell wrote: “Great start to the day … lido swim.

“Not so great next chapter.

“Train to Leeds cancelled because of ‘failed locomotive.’

“A metaphor for Brexit Covid Britain.”

But the comments sparked a furious backlash, with one Twitter user with the handle BertrumDisco replying: “Campbell’s life… let’s blame Brexit.”

Another mocked: “I wanted to hang some washing out today, my only day off too! It’s raining… Bl**dy Brexit!”
