Giles Clarke given CBE

We know this isn’t ‘news’ as such, but Giles Clarke was named in the New Year’s honours list. We believe he was awarded with a CBE for associating with known felons.

Some might say that we shouldn’t hold one mistake against a man, which is true. It’s all the other stuff as well.

Thanks to David for pointing this out to us. We long ago discarded the New Year’s honours list as a complete irrelevance. No offence to the lass, but we don’t really see the point of the monarchy and can’t get too worked up when its head hands out chunks of the alphabet.

4 Appeals

  1. My wife’s friend got an MBE, for a lifetime of community work done for no other reason than it made things better for people. So I find myself in something of a dilemma. What should I think of the system that recognises the efforts of my wife’s friend while at the same time giving an award to the fat one?

    MBE stands for Member of the Order of the British Empire. Giles didn’t get an M. He got a C.

    If only I could think of a suitable word beginning with C that would suffice to define Giles Clarke in totality.

  2. Curmudgeon?

    • No silly, its cat. Cat, yes. Bert recognizes that there was always something feline about Clarke.

  3. i feel that this photo shows why we should trust him
