OBE, CBE, MBE. All meaningless gongs. The "E" stands for Empire. Urgent message to those in charge, WE NO LONGER HAVE AN EMPIRE. If they are going to give out awards to so called celebs why dont they introduce something like an award for services to sport, another could be for charity and another for entertainment. And some are upset because Beckham and Murray did'nt get knighted. Sir David and Sir Andy FFS. Why oh why do the people responsible go down this root year after year.

Not sure I totally get the honours. Most of the people noted ( I don't mean knighted, I mean all honours) have their honour or reward from their pay, what they have won, awards related to their trade etc.

But I will accept the knighthood when it comes, and it is obvious that it will come, just to be a Sir Fear.
