For telling them to stick the knighthood up their @rses.
It's surely time the honours system was consigned to the dustbin, as yet again the New Years honours list will no doubt prove!

Why on earth was he offered one in the first pace is the more puzzling question. The recommending committee clearly didn't watch the Olympic Opening Ceremony that insulted our intelligence, as well as presenting an embarrassing reinvention of Britain's past.

''Oh Danny Boyle, the pipes the pipes are calling.''

He must be getting on, that song is as old as grass.

He’s the one responsible for the Olympics spectacular, the show where they dressed up dark skinned people to look like old world English peasants.
When the Black and White Minstrels show dressed up whites to look like blacks, they took them off the air for it.
But he gets offered a knighthood.

I am inclined to agree with benley here, the honours sytem has become a joke and needs to be binned. Selling peerages has brought them into disrepute but almost every prime minister recently has used them as public money bribes to reward sycophants and friends.

EO.  I really really don't.  As I don't read any of the 'celebrity' pages I suppose this eradicates 90 percent of the names that are spouted out. 
There was a top three on one forum earlier and i just wondered who on earth they were on about.
I suppose if I watched all the soaps this would help but as I only watch sport  oh and doc martin and nothing much more
I do have Gold on sometimes and some factual ish progs too.

These peerages and honours are a throwback to the ruddy FRENCH CONQUERERS!!!!!!!

He's a film director. He's done some okay films, Trainspotting, Sunshine, 127 Hours (or something like that) 28 Days Later and the Indian Who Wants To Be Millionaire Film which I can't recall its name.

If he's made the British film industry a few quid, kept lots of people in work and generated a lot of income for the government to spuunk then surely he is a useful addition to society?
