Yes I know it's a joke and I shouldn't let it annoy me but Clegg, a knight. A useless prick who destroyed the Liberal party? Actually that's probably why he got it, a thank you from Theresa. Thumbs Up

I haven't really looked at the rest but I'm sure there are a few more to get me riled up. Evil or Very Mad

I can't see why polling expert John Curtice deserves an award, let alone a knighthood. Is polling a valuable service to the nation?

Given the awful gaffes made by Cameron and May, accurate polling would be a valuable service to career parasites.

Reminder: Clegg's book "How to Stop Brexit" was voted (anonymously) as the book of the year by Parliamentarians. And yet Farage, the man who did more than anyone to allow us proles to express our (wrongthink) opinion on the EU gets nothing, again.

The contempt for us is almost palpable.

Anti-discrimination campaigning was laid out as a priority in the 2018 honours list by the Prime Minister, whose repeated pledges to abolish inequality of outcome have been branded “dangerous and divisive”.

Dawn Hill, chairman of the Black Cultural Archives in Brixton, south London, was appointed Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) for ‘services to culture’.

To mark 30 years of Black History Month this October, Hill’s organisation put on an exhibition at Downing Street purporting to show “over two thousand years of black history in Britain”.

Celebrating the occasion, Theresa May urged the country to “recognise the enormous contribution which African and African-Caribbean people have made to life in Britain.”

LGBT campaigners were also honoured, including Jane Owen from transgender organisation Sparkle.

The Very Reverend Professor Iain Torrance, meanwhile, will be given a knighthood for his work in “enabling the Church to perform same-sex marriages as well as paving the way for the institution to formally apologise to gay people”.

A range of police “champions of diversity” will also be honoured for their work promoting identity politics, including Deputy Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police Craig Mackey, who will receive a knighthood.

The top officer’s key achievement was overseeing a “radical transformation of the [force’s] diversity approach”, according to Police Professional, which singled out his initiative to cut back the use of ‘stop and search’ for special praise.

Activists and campaign groups funded by globalist billionaire George Soros had condemned stop and search as “racist” because ethnic minorities were more likely to be targeted — although some unfashionable senior officers insisted it saved black lives.

(Following the large reduction in searches which resulted from Mackey’s efforts, crime statistics for England and Wales showed a 26 per cent rise in knife crime, with London reported to have become more dangerous than New York City.)

Another police figure to be honoured for services to diversity in the community was former Chief Inspector Norman Pascal, who has been appointed an Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE).

Pascal, who Police Professional reports as having spent most of his 30 years of service working for the Black Police Association, dedicated his last two years before retiring this year to helping Avon and Somerset Constabulary increase the proportion ethnic minority officers in its ranks.

The Twitter page for the force — which covers 98 per cent white Somerset, 95 per cent white South Gloucestershire, 95 per cent white Bath, and 92 per cent white Bristol — now has as its header an image in which four out of six of the featured officers are non-white.

I had noticed Neutral There was a black woman honoured (the BBC highlighted) who had done some mentoring for kids or something... she didn't look that old. Normally they honour ordinary people who have worked for 20+ years at helping people, regardless of their colour.

Now you are honoured BECAUSE of your colour.

Of course the fact that 99% of people will see it as that rather than because the woman did good things (which I'm sure she did) has reduced it to another joke award.

Well it kind of was already with the celeb' element, but the argument was always look at how many proles we recognise. Now that appears to be redundant as well.

In fairness some of the celeb ones must be for charidee mate® (easy when you're a celeb) or for the money you've brought to the country through sales of music or whatever.

Maybe I've missed the point of them then. An actor, sports person, musician etc. has been rewarded through their field, be it financially or with other awards.

Someone who has worked (for example) with disadvantaged kids for 20 years would ordinarily get naff all, except if they convince their peers to nominate them Wink

I was making the point that "celebs" (hopefully) aren't rewarded just for being celebs, they have supposedly gone further. On the other hand, as I said, it's easy to get involved in charity work when charities seek you out for your celeb status and make all the arrangements to put you tearfully between a camera and a mud hut. Long-serving lollipop ladies have been nominated and received awards too. Neither seems appropriate but what do I know.

Knighting a pollster makes no sense to me because if we waited a month or so we'd know the true result anyway, unless he's being awarded for swaying the vote, which would be outrageous.

Maybe we mean different things when we say celebs Smile I mean anyone you're likely to have heard of, ie not some lollipop lady not from Hull Razz From what I can gather charity work seems to be quite lucrative, so they've probably benefited as well.
