I think Nigel Farage should be honoured officially.
Run your compliments through a mangle to make them flatter.

Congratulaions to Sir Cololnel Tom, the only well deserved knighthood I can remember of recent times.


It's a shame he is now in  the company of stupid pop stars, sportsman and failed bankers who make a mockery of the system  These honours should be saved for true national hero's and at last we have one.

Brilliant ... Congratulations Sir Tom!....an honour bestowed because of the right reason.

Allow me a nit-pick - a knighted military officer is Colonel Sir etc. in this case, as the colonelcy is an honorary one, his title will be Captain Sir Thomas Moore. Depending on the precise nature of the knighthood the title may then be followed by initials

Yes, he's brilliant for his age but BBC news did go on about it for too long this morning.  Other famous people were nipping in just to get their face on the tele again. 
Everything I can't find is in a totally secure place.

Don't worry about - it's hardly likely to affect either of us (and in the case of a lady, it would of course be Rank Dame xxxx)

This is good news, I thought they were going to leave it at the Colonel promotion.

I also think Nigel Farage should be knighted, but unfortunately it will never happen.

I think Nigel is sufficiently secure within his own estimation never to be bothered what anyone else thinks of him. Good for him.

Whereas David Beckham is obviously upset never to have received an honour.
Rules are for the guidance of wise men and the blind obedience of fools.
