    Everyone loves a flawed genius.

    I think Cook thoroughly deserves it.

    Any thoughts on John Redwood? Is it easier for politicians to get knighted than those who have excelled in other professions?

    The old school tie brigade will always be on the list. It's how the system works. What has Redwood done to deserve a knighthood? Just happens to be a career politician. I guess the majority of the list though is made up of unsung heros and if an honours system is going to exist it should be aimed at them. It was only recently that two from this church won for services to fell running, and well deserved it was too.
