I'm so glad I only got this news when I came home. David Cameron has given a knighthood to Lynton Crosby, and man who ran his election campaign. That's right, the selfish, negative, griping campaign which offered no hope to anyone unless they were evading taxes of desperate to get out of Europe. it's yet another demonstration that this government is not interested in the good of the whole country. Its own short-term advantage is all that matters, and any appeal to a larger interest or over-riding principle is dismissed as stale special pleading. they'll look after their own, and they don't care who knows it.
