    So Harry Kane gets an MBE...for what exactly? Services to people who speak like they have cabbage for a brain?

    Southgate's gets an OBE for services to waist jackets.

    John Redwood gets a knighthood for services to 'will you please now vote my Brexit deal?'

    I can let the first 2 go...but Redwood....jeez that stinks to high heaven.

    For services to doing your job.

    In the case of entertainers, generally pretty well.

    In the case of politicians, generally pretty mediocrely.

    A small quota of minor gongs for the worthy.

    Disgracefully, my doormat is still light of a letter from her Maj confirming my KBE.

    Robbie Savage, too, feels uncomfortable with the Honours System.

    Why should a professional sportsman get an honour for doing something they enjoy?

    It’s like their hobby.

    Doesn’t Moor Park Richard have ‘some letters after his name’?

    Honours inflation: gongs for losing a semi-final.

    The whole thing is a farce and should be scrapped. Go and bow before some old silver spooned witch in the footsteps of colonial butchers.

    To be fair, it wasn't an Olympic year and no one watches F1.

    Sixty years to honour someone who saved a life, possibly more at Munich and then dish them out like sweeties to heaven knows who.
    Michael Palin apart.

    Makes Moose look like Mogg.

    Idle’s book hugely disappointing.

    Comes across as a shallow name dropper.

    Too long in America perhaps?

    Was sentenced to many years at an appalling orphanage boarding school in Wolverhampton which I fancy left deep scars.

    Comes across as needy, not that funny & easily dislikeable.

    And that’s Idle’s side of the story!

    A bit of a Roger Waters feel to him.

    Palin isn’t too discreet about avoiding him at all costs.

    The honours system is such an outdated, obnoxious, antiquated load of b ollocks.

    Strip all current 'honours' and abolish the whole thing

    And the monarchy while we are at it

    Apparently Ariana Grande turned down an honorary damehood in this round. Says it all.
