  1. That is excellent news, congratulations to Michael!

  2. While I'm sure he deserves this 'honour', I'm not sure that celebrating monarchy or defunct empires really is the way to go.

  3. Michael is a friend. And I'm thrilled for him. That the "honours" system is a farce and that monarchy/empire are bad things hardly needs stating.

  4. Congratulations to Michael: truly well-deserved.
