Honour and Dishonour

Not being on the Honours List deliciously puts me in the same category as certain other people. They know who they are. A knighthood for Alan Bates is splendid in every way, not least because Ed Davey has cast himself as the nation's friendly neighbour or cuddly uncle. 

Both parties to the Coalition were and are to blame for everything that it did, from the Bedroom Tax, to the war in Libya, to the Post Office scandal, for which Davey was the Minister responsible, to the privatisation of the Royal Mail, which was done by Vince Cable.


  1. Would they get more scrutiny if they were the official opposition?

    1. They got no scrutiny when they were the Government.
