Nonentity Celebrity

I confess I have never understood the handing out of medals and honours to Civil Servants and actors. For the most part they have always been very well paid to do what they do, the main difference, of course, being that actors generally do it well and the Civil Servants ...

Friday's Royal wedding list had some strange invitees, though these things are usually diplomatic occassions as well as weddings. The strangest was David Beckham, honoured under the Blair regime for playing football occassionally at vast cost to his club and its supporters. Blair and his coterie handed out MBEs (Member of the Most Excellent Order of the Britsih Empire), OBEs and Dame and Knight of the same to all their actor chums (Labour's Luvvies) and to dustmen, housekeepers and hordes of civil servants for doing their jobs. And to the likes of Beckham.

Who paraded himself yesterday wearing the decoration on his right lapel. The moron doesn't even know which side of the chest to wear a medal...

What an insult to all the men and women who have actually earned it by doing something way beyond what they were paid to do or indeed, needed to do.
