Post New Years Honours List
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-42504660

Bee Gee Barry Gibb and Beatles drummer Ringo Starr have been knighted.

Opera singer Bryn Terfel has been knighted as well.

There's an OBE for Chris Coleman.

Sam Warburton gets his OBE as well. That one I did expect.

There was recognition for organisers of the annual Hay Festival in Powys.

The event's co-founder and director Peter Florence is made a CBE and its chairwoman, Revel Guest, an OBE for services to literature.


I've deliberately put this thread in the "Open" section and selected deserving recipients.

I'll not put a thread in the "Closed/Political" Forum.

If one of you guys wants to ...........................

If ever there was a case to show how corrupt the system is have a look at Cheryl Gillan the MP for Amersham . 2 months before the route for HS2 was announced she sold her house in Amersham it then shown that it was only 500 Mts away from the route. She then led a local campaign against HS2 which seems now to have fizzled out, only for her, after a short period of time, to be made a Dame

Nick Clegg, need I say any more?

Knighted for bending over and taking one from Cameron's cabinet.

This nonsense will continue until the revolution, ergo it will continue......

This outdated system should have ended decades ago. We are a nation stuck in the past.

I blame the European Union. It will be a good job when we are out of it.

There's a lovely old lady in Hull who was on Look North last night. She's the bee lady. She's 95, her name is Jean and she dresses up as a bee every day and goes into town to collect money for charity. She's off to Buckingham Palace to get a BEM. She said last night that she's looking forward to her cup of tea at the Palace and that she's known since the start of November and had terrible trouble keeping it secret because she can't keep secrets....Bless
