If Lynton Crosby is knighted in the New Year Honours, then it will be for services to the Conservative Party, not to the United Kingdom.
It is yet another perversion of the honours system by the Tories – look at their attitude when it comes to creating members of the House of Lords – and it is not to be tolerated.
This Blog shall certainly not be calling him Sir Lynton at any time in the future.
The reported decision to knight Lynton Crosby, the Tories’ election mastermind, has sparked a fresh row over alleged cronyism in the honours system.
Mr Crosby, soon to by Sir Lynton when the New Year Honours are officially announced, was brought in by the Conservatives for the 2005 election and has widely been credited as the force behind their surprise victory in May.
The official reason for the award will not be revealed until Thursday but campaigners have voiced outrage and claimed the decision “demeans the honours system”.
