Gilbert & Sullivan comic opera lives on with the announcement today that Prince Charles is to be made Field Marshall, Admiral of the Fleet and Marshall of The Royal Airforce – the highest military ranks.
The luvvies are doing their best to see who can be the most self-deprecating about their ‘Honours’… the BBC reports
The British Empire Medal makes a come back. But no ‘Empire Comeback’ – Ingerland beating Sweden at the footer is good, but not quite in the same league.
Honours & Awards – harmless enough I suppose – an opiate for some, desired by the self important – I prefer the style of the many who turn them down. They don’t need awards… I don’t quite see why anyone needs one.
Anyway.. to my question:
Question: In the two pictures above – who is the odd one out?
Answer: Trick question. There is no odd one out. They all have honours they have given themselves or been given for being ‘Royal’…. and why would I be against such a thing? Haha.. I’m not.. I regularly award myself geegaws and baubles.
Fancy being a Lord or Lady? No problem… just make yourself a duke or buy ‘nobility’ from the internet
