Conservative blogger praises 'Alpha Male' appointment

Tim Montgomerie, editor of Conservative Home, has praised the appointment of Boris Johnson's former strategeist Lynton Crosby by David Cameron.

He said:

[Crosby has] a good record of success and is perhaps the Alpha Male that Team Cameron has been missing since Andy Coulson exited.

Coming on top of the decision to target 20 Lib Dem MPs, it is a sign that Team Cameron is re-gearing for the kind of ambitious campaign that will be necessary to win a majority at the next election.

– Tim Montgomerie, editor of Conservative Home
