No takers eight years ago, but reduce, reuse, recycle and all that.

Lawlsie - 27 Dec 2021 19:55:53 (#2 of 141)

Chris Whitty has been knighted.

QuattroComeAllYeFaithful - 27 Dec 2021 20:06:55 (#3 of 141)

It's the very least that could be offered considering he's had to babysit Bozo at briefings.

<channels Hancock - T not M ffs>:

They’ve missed me out again. Same every year.

ReverendBlueJeans - 27 Dec 2021 21:51:13 (#5 of 141)

A tad harsh on Gormley all those years ago, FG.

FGBFGB - 27 Dec 2021 22:07:18 (#6 of 141)

In retrospect, you are right. Those were my days of being an Angry Middle-Aged Man.

JohnIlly - 27 Dec 2021 22:56:04 (#7 of 141)

Boris Johnson is benighted.

FGBFGB - 27 Dec 2021 22:58:27 (#8 of 141)

There's a thought. The Queen 's New Years Dishonours.

Narcissistic twat Antony Gormley gets a knioghthood for services to self-obsession

I skim read and thought for a split-second that Antony Worrall Thompson had been knighted, which seemed a step too far.

bailliegillies - 28 Dec 2021 16:05:22 (#10 of 141)

I thought you bought honours now, or rather the government sold them.

YuleNeverWalkAlone - 28 Dec 2021 16:08:15 (#11 of 141)

Lord Ker-ching of Pourboire-sous-table begs to differ.

Arjuna - 28 Dec 2021 16:17:48 (#12 of 141)

I thought it had forever been that way

solomongursky - 28 Dec 2021 16:22:12 (#13 of 141)

Penelope Keith? What for?

bailliegillies - 28 Dec 2021 16:26:03 (#14 of 141)

I thought it had forever been that way



Some governments more than others.

ReverendBlueJeans - 29 Dec 2021 22:19:08 (#15 of 141)

Marvellous Bonzo Johnson, so articulate and cool!

I expectorate on those who call you 'fat fool'.

You wrestled us from Europe so now we're free!

Oh, and is there any chance of a wee OBE?

ReverendBlueJeans - 29 Dec 2021 22:23:05 (#16 of 141)

I've been good, I've been really loyal and keen

I thought you were right to lie to the Queen.

All the Covid flak is just bitterness and row.

OK - suppose I slip the Party two-fifty though?

Lawlsie - 29 Dec 2021 22:24:08 (#17 of 141)

No OBE but how'd you fancy being poet laureate

ReverendBlueJeans - 29 Dec 2021 22:26:42 (#18 of 141)

Poet Laureate? That's a peppercorn thirty quid or so a year, intit? That's an insult.

OK.

Lawlsie - 29 Dec 2021 22:33:51 (#19 of 141)

You get a case of something special too once a year. And lots of kudos.

Tomnoddy - 29 Dec 2021 22:46:50 (#20 of 141)

A butt of malmsey?
