Honours insult


BORIS JOHNSON is said to be nominating his father for a knighthood in his resignatio­n honours.

What has stanley ever done to deserve that title? That’s nepotism beyond all belief and further confirms how corrupt and disreputab­le the honours system has become in recent years.

Isn’t there anything that can be done to stop this?

R. FRENCH, Brentwood, Essex.

WHEN I heard Keir starmer sounding off about Boris Johnson putting his father up for a knighthood, I thought: ‘What a hypocrite!’ He has convenient­ly forgotten that Tony Blair received a knighthood against public opinion.

Blair took us into an illegal war and I hold him responsibl­e for the deaths of thousands of innocent people.

Whatever Boris Johnson did, he’s a saint by comparison.
