NotesNews: "David Cameron has been criticised by Labour after it emerged he has hired Lynton Crosby, the hard-hitting Australian political consultant, to run the Conservatives' general election campaign. Crosby who ran Boris Johnson's two successful mayoral campaigns as well as the failed Tory campaign of 2005, will start work for the party next year, initially part-time..... But Michael Dugher, the Labour party's vice-chair, said Cameron was wrong to appoint Crosby in the light of a report in the Mail on Sunday claiming Crosby used the phrase "fucking Muslims" at a meeting when he was working for Johnson. Crosby allegedly used the term when he was arguing it would be pointless to hold a particular event to win support in an area dominated by ethnic minority voters. A spokesman for Crosby said he had "absolutely no recollection" of using the phrase and Johnson's office also said the London mayor had no recollection of the conversation."
