My auntie and my late headteacher had one for services to nursing and education respectively. I think it's more impressive for us plebs than the elite but I think it also impresses people from other countries when they meet a 'sir' or 'lady'. I wouldn't turn one down if I was nominated for one for dedication to education.

Think it's a load of self-important shite myself.

If they posted it or emailed it then fine. But it seems a lot of hassle for something that means nothing.

It’s the thought of  billionaire “Lady” Green sitting on her yacht in Monaco sipping champagne all paid for by now redundant BHS employees and penniless pensioners, she never having paid a penny in U.K. tax that gets my hackles up, not the care worker, foster parent or 100 year old poppy seller.

Can't be arsed rising to my genuine, but deliberately provocative, opinion?

Fair enough. Saw me coming ;)

Exact process is P.M. submits a list to Palace for approval, like every other matter of government she just rubber stamps it, the nominee then receives a letter from the palace along the lines of "we are minded to award you....whatever award....if we were to award you ....would you accept. Etc.” If the nominee says that they do not wish to receive it then no more is said .
Having been involved in the collation of supporting information for such an honour, I can tell you that the honour was applied for. The honour can be applied for by the person themselves or by someone else.

It is much more than submitting a nomination to a government group who then suggest it. The supporting information needs to be quite substantive and for the best results you should have a Lord as part of the supporting cast. Someone from a governing body helps too. Easy when nominating Dalglish or the likes. Not so much so when nominating a nurse or head teacher.

People apply for their own honour? Takes a real level of arrogance that

Hahahaha no mate. If it's your opinion, it's cool by me. I'm a filthy royalist (sort of) and love the pomp and ceremony to a point.

No it's applied for, on your behalf, by someone else who thinks you deserve it.

In this case the Hillsborough families I read.
There are only two things I can't stand in this world. People who are intolerant of other people's cultures... and the Dutch.

I'd imagine if you were so arrogant to nominate yourself you'd be pretty disappointed if your application was turned down.
A disappointment that would then lead to a resentment of the whole process.
