It’s already been noted in comments, but I thought that marking this great event deserved its own post.
To me, this really signals who is running the show, who is still running the show, and what their values are.
Meanwhile, the rest of you can continue to eat cake. Carry on.
From the Independent:
Conservative election strategist Lynton Crosby has been knighted for his service to politics – almost a year to the day since he helped the party secure a shock victory at the General Election…
he said in a written statement: “I am truly honoured to receive this award in recognition of my service to politics in the UK and especially proud that my family can rightly share in and enjoy the recognition.
“It is also recognition for the thousands of candidates, campaign staff, activists, volunteers and my company’s professional colleagues who I’ve had the great fortune to work alongside in the UK – across elections over the past decade.
“It is their hard work and commitment in fighting for a cause they believe in and unfailing faith in focusing on the people that matter – the voting public – that have contributed to the achievement of politics and campaign successes.”
Isn’t it nice of Mr Crosby to recognise that he is part of a much larger network of colleagues, contacts and employees who make his success possible?
