Do any sports person deserve a medal one or Knight hood for doing what they get paid for

You can make the same argument for a significant percentage of honours.

Why stop now, just when I'm hating it

Lieutenant Colonel Jones earned and deserved his posthumous Victoria Cross medal.

Sportsmen and Sportswomen do not deserve or earn Knight hoods/medals.

Nobody should be given a Knighthood or such like, It's archaic Royal nonsense bullshit.

My Father had a profound influence on me, he was a lunatic.

It was created circa WWI to give ordinary people a chance to be valued, thanked etc.

It’s now been devalued to a glorified employee of the month award IMO.

Edit: created in 1818 so i was only 100 years out!

Not until he pays his taxes in this country.Not just him,but anyone who avoids paying their share in the land of their birth while continuing to want to claim they’re still British.
I could understand it if the tax rate was over 90% like the 60’s and 70’s,but he’d still get to keep 55% of the millions he earns every year,and the millions he’d pay would do a lot of good in these dire times.

Why should he be given a Knighthood for driving the equivalent of a sports car against a load of Morris Minors.

Well, I'm still British like it or lump it due to birth. Left the country decades ago though still pay UK tax due to my penchant for investing in things over that side of the pond. Oh, you're welcome to my part pension or whatever I paid into, I'm more than grateful for the education.

Edit, if someone wants an OBE I'll pass on your name when they come calling.

Well I'd say it's a bit late to exclude sportsmen and women now. If you've set the bar at Beckham and Murray then I think Hamilton has done enough.

I guess you left for reasons other than just to avoid paying tax on your vast income though mate.Thats the difference.
I’m not sure they give out gongs for driving a truck so I think I’m safe for a while.
