Time for a new honours system

Isn’t it an appropriate time to initiate a completely separate ‘Honours’ system? The media would love to promote it.

Suggestions could be, ‘The British Independence Order’ (BIO), or ‘the British Order of Merit’ (BOM), or ‘Order of British Independence’ (OBI) or ‘Knight Commander of the Order of Parliament’ (KCOP), or ‘Knight Commander of British Independence’ (KCBI) and I would suggest that the latter be awarded to Nigel Farage forthwith.

I think it well worth having a few appropriate medallions/ribbons specially made to capture the media’s obvious attention and have an award ceremony.

This situation is unlikely to ever come up as pronounced as it is today with public opinion heavily against Mr Cameron’s outrageous honours list.
