    I think they should "bugger" the honours list .
    Doctors and nurses working all hours in extreme emotional conditions and the armed forces putting their lives on the line .
    Who gets the honours ?... Andy Murray ,a tennis player that plays tennis for millions of pounds . Victoria Beckham ...services to fashion and her bank balance .
    What an effing joke ,the rich slapping each other on the back .

    Too right Phil
    It's always good to see someone who has the cojones to reject an MBE, OBE etc.
    But not your average weaselly politician mind. Kinnock was opposed to the honours system from day one - but more than happy to accept a Life peerage: "I accepted the kind invitation to enter the House of Lords as a working peer for practical political reasons."
    Yeah, right.
    Weasel.

    How about our (Canadian) Conrad Black, who gave up his Canadian citizenship in order to become a Lord. Oh, he's Canadian again because the other Lords found out he was a "scoundrel/robber of funds from his own companies" and they booted him out. But we Canadians, being the polite and forgiving folk we are, allowed him to get his citizenship back.

    I was born. Am a good son, brother, father, husband and citizen. I work hard and with diligence. I Iike chess.

    I admit though that at a poker table when I get way ahead, I haven't yet learned how to bully everyone else out of the pot.

    I have always had a soft spot for Conrad and feel he was badly treated.
    Ultimately he was only convicted of mail fraud and obstruction of justice.
    Not of theft.

    I've never cut a ribbon.
