Marvellous - now you tell me who's got more class? Margaret Beckett also pulled off a nice curtsey but only gave a slight bow of the head to the Duke of Edinburgh. Very strange.
I wonder if Cherie will make Tony refuse the peerage that's usually offered to ex-PMs.

Don't be silly! She isn't that principled!

Oh we can be sure that Baroness Blair will lap up her role as Lady of the Manor. Odious woman.

I don't think they even have a manor! She could never be mistaken for a Lady either!

Perhaps HM could bring in new rules and exclude them.

Oh I don't know - have you heard how much the place in Connaught Square cost? I'd love HM to say in a public address, "Thank God those two are going because they've really got on my boobies for the last 10 years".

No. He was conspicuous by his absence. Edward was in the Falklands which was an odd choice so I'm not sure where Andrew was.

Maybe they invited the Earl of Wessex because of his title and not because if he fought or not. To me it makes more sense that Andrew would be their too.

The Queen's Birthday Honours are out so prepare for a barrage of anti-monarchist crap. A link to the honours in full;

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/shared/bsp/h..._hons_main.pdf

Some highlights are:

Ian Botham - Knighthood
Salman Rushdie - Knighthood
Barry Humphries (Dame Edna) gets a CBE
Stephan Poliakoff gets a CBE
David Starkey gets a CBE
Jane Tomlinson gets a CBE
Joe Cocker gets an OBE
Ryan Giggs gets an OBE
Peter Sallis gets an OBE
Bill Pertwee gets an MBE

Sylvia Sims also gets an OBE - she played the Queen Mother in "The Queen". Sadly, June Whitfield and Liz Smith were not given anything this year (I'd signed petitions for both to get Damehoods) and Barry Humphries loses out on a Knighthood which I would think was far more appropriate than a CBE. Oh well.

Vice-Admiral Timothy Laurence was also made a CB in the Ministry of Defence list.

Would he have been made a "Sir" or would "Dame" Edna finally receive a lawful title?

Well, there was a spell when Edna didn't use her Damehood. This was during the Republic referendum and she put herself out as "Mrs Edna Everage" but now she seems happy to use the Damehood again.

BTW - did you realise that "Dame" Edna is in fact a "Dr." Edna? I was not really surprised but impressed to see that in the list (am still a believer in academic merits...).

I had no idea that BH had a Doctorate or that his name is John and not Barry! I'm glad he got a CBE to add to his AO but I think Sir Barry Humphries would have been nicer.

Companion of the Order of the Bath. I'm pretty sure it's related to his new rank and position, since it's in the military division of the Order.
