Subject: RE: Eliza Carthy MBE
The honours system confuses most English people, even folkies who often announce they will sing Lord Franklin.
He wasn't a lord although his wife was Lady Franklin. He was but Sir John Franklin.
As for Eliza's MBE - all well and good if she wants it.
But Roy Bailey sings just as well even though he sent his back.
