Queen's Birthday Honours List

Maverick multi-millionaires Philip Green and Stelios Haji-Ioannou have been given knighthoods in the Queen's Birthday Honours list. This is the first list since Blair removed himself from the nominations process so no obvious cronies this time that I can see. I'm sure though if there are any dodgy people it won't take long for it to be blogged by someone.

See the full list here.

Update: Well that didn't take long. It appears the CBE for Assistant Commissioner Andy Hayman has caused a little upset. It's true the timing might seem bad, but the guy probably does deserve an honour for his work and the list was probably drawn up and confirmed long before the Forest Gate raid anyway. The Liberal Democrats appear to have jumped on it with expected opportunism.
