Cameron Rewards Remain Failures

The honours list is out – confirmation that Stronger In boss Will Straw will have his failure rewarded with a CBE. Arise Sir Craig Oliver, No.10 comms chief who went to spin for BSE. There will also be a CBE for Dan Korski, the Downing Street aide best known for orchestrating pro-Remain support during the campaign. Charlotte Vere, chief of the failed Conservatives In, is rewarded with a peerage. The Remain losers get gongs, Matthew Elliott, boss of Vote Leave and the No2AV campaign, got victories…

Plenty of honours for Dave’s mates. George Osborne becomes a Companion of Honour. There are CBEs for his official spokesman Helen Bower, SpAd Ramsay Jones and spinner Graeme Wilson. OBEs for SpAds Julian Glover, Neil O’Brien, Lena Pietsch, Thea Rogers, Alan Sendorek, Isabel Spearman, Sheridan Westlake, Eleanor Wolfson and Cameron’s constituency agent Natasha Whitmill. MBEs for SpAds Adam Atashzai, Jessica Cunniffe, Giles Kenningham, Richard Parr, Caroline Preston, Nick Seddon, Kate Shouesmith, Laura Trott and Martha Varney. There are peerages for aides Ed Llewellyn, Liz Sugg, Camilla Cavendish, Gabby Bertin and Jonathan Caine. Many deserved, some less so…
