Happy New Year Everyone …
Posted by Big John on December 30, 2012
… and I’m sorry if I have been a bit slow with my blog comments lately, and please forgive me for taking a short break from posting due to
important family busi… me being a lazy bugger at this time of year.
However, I’ve just got time for a quick rant about that annual ‘medieval’ nonsense which must give people living in the rest of the world a bloody good laugh.
Yes, it’s time once again for the New Year’s Honours list to be published, and this year, of course, it’s overflowing with Olympic
heroes athletes and the like: and can you believe that some skinny bloke who won a French cycle race has been awarded a knighthood, and is already being referred to by the dignified name of ‘Sir Wiggo’, while a 92 year old World War II veteran codebreaker, who saved thousands of lives by helping to shorten that war by possibly two years, has had to wait for more than 65 years to receive one of the lowest ranked honours, the MBE ! .. Doesn’t it make you …
… proud to be British ?
