Sir Brucie - at 83, it was about time. Now he can retire from Strictly Come Dancing!
Henry Cecil's Knighthood was long overdue in comparison who else already got it.

2012 Royal honors granted to criminals
The British society would begin 2012 with fraudsters, family members of convicted murderers and scandalous political donors walking the streets with royal honors.
Queen Elizabeth II's list of honors for the 2012 New Years featured several people widely known among people for their misdemeanor.

Fred the Shred got stripped, like Mugabe & Ceaucescu. Not quite comparable but well deserved. The whole honours system is kind of a joke, really.

I was surprised at Jean Marsh just now getting the OBE. I do so love her voice and she has had a long, lovely career.

I just found this on the Portrait page. It is a lovely likeness but also a great representation of Order of New Zealand and the Queen's Service Order. Nice!
