Honours joke time again
Wednesday, 31 December 2008 10:36

Once again the honours system throws us into convulsions of laughter. This year it's sports that seem to dominate.

Dear Gordon is always banging on about creating a fairer Britain, blah blah . . . abolish the House of Lords etc etc, so why has he not abolished the honours?

The answer is simple, it's a system that allows him, personally, to give something that money can't buy, but something that people will kill for.

To be called 'Sir' or the honourable . . . well it's time to get rid of the lot.

Sports stars are not worth knighthoods or medals, like one of them said, why give it to someone for riding a bike?

Wake up Gordon, you have devalued honours to the point where they are worthless!
