    I agree really. Getting one of these gongs or not doesn't mean they are more or less amazing. They are both incredible with or without a nighthood

    I not a fan of the award system, peerages and knighthoods are often tainted with cronyism or sleaze.

    At least the medals CBE,OBE, MBE are usually awarded on merit and earned by doing good works for a charity or community in general

    In my mind they should be regarded as a higher award than peerages or knighthoods because they have been earned

    The 'honours' system has always focused predominantly on the posh sports dominated by public school types.
    He's not the Messiah, he's a naughty boy.

    Make me laugh those “services too” awards. It’s literally his job that he’s paid to do and likely overpaid at that. If he’d done it on his free time or at any great cost to himself then maybe but everyone should get one based on the current approach.

    Maybe “One Pint” is more in touch with reality than some of the politicians.
    Nice sentiment from him.
