It's a corrupted system, corrupted from the very start of it so why the outrage every time then nothing? Anyone complaining actually send a letter to their MP or perhaps PM about it? Ever?....
I used to write to my MPs probably every few weeks (maybe 10'ish times a year averaged out). Can't remember the details of each issue raised but he never replies, never acts, just a safe seat and he just votes along with the (Conservative) whips/party so no thought involved - all in the complete 110% confidence that he'll be re-elected next time round.
Have you raised the issue of the honours system?
It's highly likely it makes no difference contacting your MP in many cases but we're moving to an area with an active, constituency MP who does act for constituents, even when he ran his party!!! If you're unlucky to have a party pr*ck who does nothing then what about the relevant minister, PM or committee? I don't know but anything other than moaning about X, y or z crony getting a gong every time the party you dislike is in power and uses the system for their own benefits.
This kind of thread comes up with regular pattern that coincides with another round of honours. What a surprise?!!!! Can a moderator not just tag this one onto all the others?? Has this thread added anything other than a new name to moan about getting an honour? Anyone bothered looking up last honours system threads to check? Perhaps the op could have done that first? See if he's adding anything new, if not just add to the last thread or the first one.
Sorry if I'm cynical about these cyclical complaint threads. They're just a little pointless IMHO.
