Beckham and the Non-Existent Knighthood Update

The tawdriness of the so-called honours system


I posted this article about David Beckham’s pursuit of one of the baubles handed out by the British Establishment.

Seems the Sunday Times agrees with me. They included this excellent article and this editorial in their 12/02/2107 edition.

The best quote from the article: Another former honours insider added: “The whole thing is inevitably a massive exercise in ego-inflation and self-importance.”
