G’day Tories

Aussie Lynton Crosby, the new Tory campaign director is an interesting choice. Looking past all the spin that he is an old mate of Michael Howard its worth noting that Crosby was behind the 1996 campaign when the Aussie Liberal party pulled off a surprise victory by all but conceding that the party had no chance of beating the Government of the then Labour Prime Minister, Paul Keating.

Mike Smithson, over at PoliticalBetting.Com says “the Crosby campaign urged the voters to “send Keating a message”. Substitute “UK Conservative Party” for “Australian Liberal Party” and “Tony Blair” for “Paul Keating” and you might have the basis of a winning General Election strategy.”
