Michael Crick, love him as I do, is trying to create mischief in his latest blogpost on Jonathan Isaby's scoop. He reckons Lynton Crosby has "defected" to Libertas. Fail. Lynton runs a company which advises political parties on how to run and win election campaigns. He is a consultant. Consultants consult. They are the political equivalent of mercanaries.
I'd love to see him back advising the Tories on the next general election campaign. But in the meantime, he and his company need to earn a living. To suggest that he, personally, has defected is idiotic. He is as much a Conservative today, as he was a month ago. I suspect the same can be said for Sir Paul Judge too.
