New Year's Honours
Buckingham Palace has published the New Year's Honours list. These are people whose services to the country have been officially recognised and they will be summoned to the Palace to receive their gong. It's also that time of year when self-indulgent left wingers start objecting to references to the British empire and royal patronage.
