    It’s always good to see recognition for talent, or services to the Arts. Makes a change from the money men and aristos.
    Best wishes, Pete. x

    I’m glad they realised Billy deserved the honour before he dies.

    What a stellar group, Sarah. I wouldn’t have recognized his name, but with your write up — of course! Hugs.

    I haven’t looked through all the names but unlike previous years, I certainly agree with the top honours in my profession. You will, I’m sure, have seen Connolly as John Brown in Mrs Brown with Judi Dench as Queen Victoria – if not, it should go on your list! Sadly, he has Parkinson’s now.

    Sad indeed. That movie is well worth revisiting. .

The Stuff They Won't Include in Any Tourist Guide: The Real England

The Real England is a concise, direct, and not-so-gentle window into the depths of the leftovers of the world’s once greatest empire. It is told from the perspective of one lone (or not so lone) long term visitor. It informs one of the dregs of the country and helps to explain quaint British oddities such as the crack addicted chav.
