Those recognised by the Queen in the New Year Honours List include doctor who oversaw delivery of Prince George........
Now then, it's a race between Sandie....and Fairburn....and the little man is in........yeees he's in.

I, just like those Castleford supporters felt that the ball should have gone to David Plange but he put the bit betwen his teeth...and it was a try

Kevin Ward - best player I have ever seen

The real Mick Gledhill is what you see on here, a Bradford fan ........, but deep down knows that Bradford are just not good enough to challenge the likes of Leeds & St Helens.

Baron Finkelstein, speechwriter for David Cameron and George Osborne.

 

That tells us exactly what the Honours System is worth.

Plenty of awards for showbiz people who basically get a gong for just doing their job.

 

I passed a professional Continuing Competence test a few weeks ago. I think I'll put in for an OBE.

There is a top strata of people you've probably heard of, then the 'time served' gongs for civil servants et cetera. Then there are a lot of 'local heroes' who have been nominated by people who appreciate their hard work.

Don't devalue the latter just because a particular celeb got a gong or not.

The first two automatically devalue the last, so I don't personally give a monkeys either way.

With my council estate republican heritage, I can't quite see them offering me anything in the forseeable future. Even though I did once give a stranger £10 to get a taxi home ... 2004, I think it was. ;) ;) :biggrin:

 They won't offer you anything. You have to get people to nominate you.

Honours should be awards for long service only or acts of bravery. A retirement gift if you want.

A group of us TRLers could nominate you and if successful, with your council estate republican heritage, you could tell 'em where to stuff it.

Can we nominate appropriate three letter acronyms for the honour to be bestowed?

Many decline honours; a tedious few decline them as noisily and publicly as they can, to feed their need for self-aggrandisement.

The honours system is bent. Surely it's best to undermine it in as loud a fashion as possible.

You've just noticed something was bent. 

You're off form tonight.
