At one point you were made a “sir” after defending the monarch/princes on the battlefield but it’s all gone downhill.
You can now be “knighted” if you are a large donor to a political party, cack singer/actor, floor cleaner/washing machine inventor (Dyson) who then took his production abroad for cheaper labour.
And now, apparently, you can get the award for giving the heir apparent and his wife bed and breakfast.
But nothing for the pioneering surgeons/heart disease research.
