The Daily Mail 27 December 2015:
In 2001 then Australian prime minister, John Howard, gave Crosby the Centenary Medal "for service to Australian society through politics" and in 2005 arranged for him to become an Officer of the Order of Australia "for service to politics as federal director of the Liberal Party of Australia".
On 1 January 2016 he became a knight bachelor "for political service" to the Conservative Party.
One wonders - will the newly knighted Sir Lynton Crosby be coming back to bolster the Turnbull Government's chances of getting over the line in 2016?
