Where did it all go wrong for May? Tories furious at strategist dubbed election ‘wizard’

9 Jun

Sir Lynton Crosby was one of five people in the inner circle who directed the Tory campaign after the Prime Minister announced the snap election.

The Australian election strategist, nicknamed the ‘Wizard of Oz’, was credited as being the architect of David cameron’s 2015 victory.

But Theresa May’s election gamble backfired following a shambolic campaign and after the results left her with a hung parliament, she is now scrambling to form a coalition government with the DUP. 

Former Australian prime minister Kevin Rudd was scathing in a brief tweet, saying: “It seems ‘Sir’ Lynton Crosby, Australian conservative political hatchet man, may not have had such a brilliant British election after all.”
