I never thought I would say this, being quite a traditionalist, but I rather too many honours have been given out and with no real explanation or clue as to why the individuals are receiving them. It reminds me of handing out the tin of Quality Street on Christmas Day.

George Osborne becomes a Companion of Honour

Quote:
David Cameron's final honours list has been denounced as "a sorry legacy" after it was confirmed he has dished out gongs to political allies in a move that critics claimed amounted to cronyism.

The former prime minister created 13 Tory life peers giving the Tories 207 - one more than Labour - in a round of rewards that has been described as "so full of cronies it would embarrass a medieval court".

Tory treasurer Andrew Fraser, and political aides Gabrielle Bertin and Camilla Cavendish who both worked at Number 10, are all being given peerages.

Knighthoods have been given to Cabinet ministers Michael Fallon and Patrick McLoughlin and former ministers Oliver Letwin and Hugo Swire, while former chancellor George Osborne becomes a Companion of Honour.

Andy Murray Knighthood?

So with Andy Murray closing in on the number one spot, do you think he will get a knighthood if he makes it? I thought he might have got one in the 2016 list. He is one of our best sportspeople for a generation,

I'll be beyond stunned if he doesn't get one in the New Year's Honours and that's regardless of Andy reaching Number 1 in the next few weeks. Winning his second Wimbledon & then defending his Olympic Title in Rio should be more than enough for him to become Sir Andrew Murray.

That's all JMO of course. 😊

Nowadays (knowing about all doping scandals) it's safer to wait the end of sportsman's career

I would be fairly stunned if he did get it this year. He has an OBE already and typically it seems like the KBE and GBE go to people far older than Murray is now. And that's even without considering his somewhat controversial pro-Scottish independence stance during the referendum.

I damn well hope not, and fail to see why a Scots Nationalist [who voted for the dissolution of Britain] should receive [or accept] ANY British honour..

Andy could not actually vote in the referendum because he lives in England.

If he did not vote it was SOLELY because he had deserted the Country he claims to support.. Either way he expressed his support for the dissolution of Britain, so does not warrant any British Honours [imo].

Yeah, I think you're right. Who else do you think is a shoe-in for the next list?

This is an interesting point that may well count against him. Personally I don't think people should be punished for expressing their opinion though. I think that the honours system would survive any dissolution of the UK too. the Royals would still be monarchs over both countries even if Scotland became independent.
