I'm a royalist, or at least an anti-republican, but honestly, sometimes the decisions made in Honours Lists baffle me... http://www.news.com.au/story/0,27574,24858967-5018541,00.html I can live with Robert Plant, he was making great music before Lewis Hamilton was born. And Pratchett, bless his bizzare mind, likewise has earned his stripes. But Lewis Hamilton??? For God's sake, he's done precisely, what??? Sir Stirling Moss has done more for motor sport than any of these over-paid show-ponies, and he had to wait till he nearly had a foot in the grave for HIS gong. It's a disgrace, and it GREATLY devalues the knighhoods of those who've done their hard miles and earned their recognition.
