I'm not one for Honours Lists- but if we are going to hand out knighthoods lets give them to people who really are outstanding in their fields.
Like the brilliant David Suchet, an actor whose performances range from excellent to out of this world.
Or comedy writer Jimmy Perry-who has given us such comedy gems as Dad's Army and It Aint Half Hot Mum.
And what about the incomparable Richard Briers?
I think all three people mentioned above have contributed rather more to the happiness of mankind than Lord Paddy Pantsdown- the former Imperial High Consul 0f the Puppet Republic of Bosnia-Herzegovina- who has received yet another ill-deserved honour.
