New Years Honours List

#4
Doctors and Scientists i can understand, but 'For contribution to the Beauty Industry'? For fucks sake, wheres mine 'For contribution to the Masturbatory Arts'. What a load of old pony!
 
#5
And still nothing for Bruce Forsythe!
I will of course be outraged, write to the Daily wail, and be starting a Facetube page to ensure this man,no,this colossus of the light entertainment world gets the regognition that he richly deserves.

Fully deserved.

Professor Keith Porter, the consultant responsible, for co-ordinating care of British troops injured in Afghanistan, is knighted.

A consultant at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham and the UK's only professor of clinical traumatology, Prof Porter has been leading the treatment of complex battle injuries.
His work has led to improved survival rates and more rapid recovery for injured service personnel.
He said: "I am privileged to be the civilian lead over a service that is highly-tuned and fully engaged in the care of injured soldiers.
"I am proud of the efforts of the military and NHS teams that work side-by-side to deliver excellent outcomes for patients who previously had non-survivable injuries."
Prof Porter, 61, explained that in his work he deals with injuries in military patients that bear no comparison with normal wounds.
"We are seeing multiple injuries from firearms and explosive devices which require multiple operations and critical care."
But the prognosis for many of these patients, he says, is much better than it would have been.
"In Birmingham there are cases of patients surviving when they wouldn't have three years ago," Professor Porter said.
He was involved in looking after patients in the first Gulf War and admits that military care, from wounding to discharge and rehabilitation, has improved dramatically.
"Our patients come back here now, about 36 hours post-injury, invariably in the best possible physiological condition they can be."

New Year's Honours for Service personnel and Defence civilians is here

Ministry of Defence | Defence News | History and Honour | 2011: New Year's Honours for Service personnel and Defence civilians

I like the following from the FCO list :)

Charles Sydney TOBIAS MBE
Chairman, Pusser’s Rum, British Virgin Islands. For services to the Royal Navy and to the community of the British Virgin Islands
Good spot. A generous-hearted character indeed:

Wikipedia said:
...In 1979, nearly a decade after the Royal Navy abandoned the custom of the daily tot of rum, company founder Charles Tobias obtained the rights to blending information associated with the naval rum ration and formed the company to produce the spirit according to the original Admiralty recipe, a blend of five West Indian rums without colouring agents. The Royal Navy Sailor's Fund, a Navy charity, receives royalties from the proceeds of each bottle of the rum sold, and that is now the charity's largest source of income apart from the founder's original bequest...

Shame there are so few non-commissioned ranks in the military list. As usual.
The problem being that with the demise of the BEM (the other ranks medal) the only honour open to them is the MBE and they have to compete with Commissioned officers (who write and vet the nominations) for it.

So much for John Majors classless society :grin:

Agreed: the nasty little man also did for the DCM and the MM. Back on thread - I noted that this chap, Maj Nicholas Paul Mott Welsh Guards, hooked an MBE. Purely out of interest, would anyone know if he is related to the GSM?
