Nigel Farage deserves the greatest honour a nation can offer

I can think think of some, not a million miles from this blog who might beg leave to differ?

It is quite outrageous that idiot Clegg (forgotten but not gone) was honoured but I am sure Niges time will come.

I imagine that the cockroaches that be decided it would be too politically charged to do him now. Besides, let's not forget the entire political estblishment is plotting with the dickheads from bruscles to somehow keep us in - it os by no means a done deal.

As our favourite man would have said , this is not the end, nor is it the beginnign of the end. It is the end of the beginning.

Agree with you completely, but don't expect poor Nige to get anything ever. By the way, Clegg somehow got re-elected in 2015 but was turfed out - frabjous day! in this year's election where he lost to Jared O'Mara, one of the few politicians to make Clegg look almost normal.

I said ALMOST!

I am used to greasers, sycophants and failures being rewarded with honours, but Cleggy's seems deliberately provocative. A slap in the face of the public. Lord Ashdown, former Lib Dem leader said: "I will forgive no one who does not respect the sovereign voice of the British people once it has spoken, whether it is a majority of 1 per cent or 20 per cent. When the British people have spoken you do what they command. Either you believe in democracy or you don't". Of course, the old booby was expecting a vote for Remain but it's an interesting quote isn't it from one ex Lib Dem leader to another. (Comes from Patronising Bastards, David).

Knighting Ringo Starr and Barry Gibb sets new standards in mediocrity. John Lennon, David Bowie, Robert Plant, Robert Morley, Vanessa Redgrave, Aldous Huxley and Henry Moore all turned down the honor. If the pattern holds Farage will be knighted at least twice.

It would have been difficult for Vanessa to accept a knighthood considering she wanted to wipe out the establishment with her Trotskyist revolution. Nigel definitely deserves a knighthood plus bar! for his supreme effort in our brexit. However the British establishment are pro EU gravy train so Nigel will have to wait a while for upsetting them.

Old fashioned I know but Knighthoods belong only to those who put themselves in harms way for the sake of their nation.

They are now totally meaningless.

Bob, if Bob Marley can get a Nobel prize then certainly Ringo and the other nobodies deserve everything they can lay their hands on.
I'm not a fan of any of them and, apparently, neither are you.
Happy thing!

Approaching two bells in the first Dog Watch so 2018 is but seven hours away here in Oz.

Happy 2018 to all on Duffers' site.

Might have a quiet night with a cold frothy and watch replays of the falling wickets in the Test Series.

If ever I am in an unfortunate position to be in the company of Clegg I will address him as “Calamity” as he is widely known.
If I am in the fortunate position to be in the company of Nige I will address him as sir.
I do not recognise the political bullshit of our majesty’s incompetent clowns.

And you lot voted to put these clown-choosers in sole control of Blighty's destiny.

Are you all secretly members of a sado-masochists club?

Another clown-fish from the DT ...

Another tax, this one on raw materials, to unite the Remainers and Brexiteers behind the common cause of the green blob.

Supertastical idea DT, well done, keep up the good work.

Did Marley get a Nobel? Or did you mean Dylan? Either way, your point is good.

Aah, thanks Dom. You're quite right. Shows you how much I know about "modern" music.
