I can't help but wonder how some people qualify for honours. I like Jo Public getting stuff for working hard; a milkman, a shoeshine bloke who is 80, a few people who've done loads of community work. This keeps awards from appearing too elitist and these people are often unsung and unrecognised. They will also really appreciate them. Rod Stewart? Well I suppose he is at the top of his game and has been for some decades. However, I would have thought that the multi-millions, the models requiring humping, the drink, the drugs, the fame, the adoration, the groupies etc would be more than enough reward. His work has hardly been selfless; he has been handsomely rewarded throughout his career. Still, he is something of a national icon so I can see some sense. But June Sarpong. JUNE SARPONG!! Have I missed something? Whilst I've been on TELIC has she saved an orphanage or something? As far as I am aware she is a low profile, second or third eleven pop TV presenter. Vernon Kaye has moved on - she hasn't. I've seen 18 year olds expose themselves to enemy fire to cover their friends. What in the name of God has June done?
