Re: Same stunt they pull in any academic setup

"What a bunch of stupid, inconsistent arse the honours system is. FFS - that high-street twat Philip Green has a knighthood."

It's so silly, even the Americans copied it. Although they give medals and Presidential Citations and stuff.

It's not the titles or whatever that are given, it's the recognition or peoples efforts that matters. Whether it's administered in a fair and equatable fashion is another matter. Senior civil servants getting honours just for surviving isn't really a good use of the system.
