It is high time that our recently discredited system of dishing out mostly
"honours" was consigned to the dustbin. If it is to continue (as I am sure
will) there must be
hundreds of people far more deserving of these baubles than the odious
Jeffrey Archer, his fragrant wife and their ilk. I agree that Shearing and
McPartland would be a step in the right direction.
