The FT's Jim Pickard is speculating that "Downing Street approached Tim Montgomerie… to join the ship". Here's the truth in a nutshell… Over the last eighteen months three members of the Prime Minister's team have asked if I'd consider joining the operation. I said "no". The conversations were very casual and didn't come close to anything that could be called a job offer. And, for the record, I'm still very happy doing what I'm doing.
