Hang on.*trying REALLY hard not to mention the latest round of honours*
These aren't the honours given out for attainment. You won top score in your sport. You raised bucket-loads of cash from your community. You have been an outstanding example of what a good person can be and you need to be rewarded for it.
The so-called Queens Honours are "proposed" by the government of the day. They tell 'Er Maj who to give a gong to. She has no choice in the matter! Boris (or more likely Cummings) writes down a list of those "worthy" of honour - usually those who've contributed to their party or need a boost in their portfolio (such as Dido Harding) - and 'er Maj' (gawd bless 'er) signs off on it. The Queen actually has no choice.
These aren't 'honours' handed out by the old duck.
These are handed out by the current government as nice little earners for lining pockets and being bastards!
