What has he done to de­serve hon­ours?

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Notice To Benefits Claimants -

Just about every­body I know is sick at the way the hon­ours are thrown around like con­fetti. What have the likes of au­thor Jackie Collins, OBE, done to de­serve hon­ours? Th­ese peo­ple earn vast amounts of money for some­thing they en­joy do­ing. Do they re­ally qual­ify to be hon­oured? And, lo­cally, which joker nom­i­nated Paul Carter, the leader of Kent County Coun­cil, for a new year hon­our? He hasn’t ex­actly en­deared him­self to the peo­ple of Kent; is paid an ob­scene salary, along with his other cronies, for do­ing a high-paid job poorly. We hear he likes to drive fast cars in his spare time and is a fig­ure­head for some lo­cal as­sem­bly no one’s heard of. Does all of this qual­ify him for a CBE? I don’t think so. Sounds more like the old pals’ act. Peo­ple who work all week for lit­tle money in char­ity shops are more de­serv­ing. James Kelly, Ash­ford
