It appears that ‘honours’ are now handed out like confetti. The latest is a knighthood to comedian Lenny Henry for his charity work and a CBE to 38-year-old Benedict Cumberbatch, son of actress Wanda Ventham, for services to drama.
I, along with thousands of others am still waiting for my honour, having done my 50 + year stint in the workplace, always giving to charity and always causing drama, especially on The Star’s letter page. Maybe the powers-that-be have lost my address.
