No Honours For Marr

BBC presenter and Queen Elizabeth biographer is no knee-jerk republican, but he's got it in for the honours system as Roy Greenslade reports.  I rather like Marr's reasoning - we all know that the system became farcical long ago, not least for its ritual rewarding of well paid celebrities who needed no further recognition and were already doing something many would give their eye teeth for.  Mind you, I'm not sure Marr was close to getting an honour in the first place, but this will certainly ensure he doesn't need to get out the court dress just yet.
