The Honours’ List is beginning to age badly. Time to retire it.
Felicity takes a good old look at this years New Year’s Honours and the predictions listed for 2013 Contrastingly Felicity also examines the Queens Birthday Honours and the type of people considered for these honours, suggestions, and submissions.
Then Felicity puts light on the results of the 2012 Olympics, the Team GB in the London Olympics, Olympic medallions, book deals and now knighthoods?
Felicity does many things to construct her case for example you will find out about “Sir Wiggo” in France and how he tapped into the system through friends in pretty high places.
From all this I am sure you will be a lot wiser about the subject than before you started reading it.
