Next morning -- slow burn

But must nevertheless point out supreme irrelevance in that non-argument. Elected presidents, dictators, & all other heads of state confer honours, under advice from the committees appointed in their countries for the purpose, who will not necessarily have any more knowledge of the details of all the achievements, contributions or 'services' for which they were awarded than will a hereditary monarch. So the fact the HMQ happened to have been born to the job rather than achieving it by any other means, is most gloriously irrelevant to JMcL's own point

isn't it?

Silly kipper!
