Iain Duncan Smith has been knighted. I am also an incompetent prick, yet I remain unrecognised, possibly because my incompetence doesn’t have much impact on the most vulnerable members of our society.
Normally, i am indifferent to the perennial honours system debate, but this really makes me mad, coming hot on the heels of the elevation of Goldsmith and Morgan to the Lords for services to their chum in Downing Street.
The question is, what can we do about it? The electorate have rejected the other potential governing parties. The good people of Chingford seem happy to be represented by the awful Duncan Smith. So do we just shrug and cue up the next Beatles podcast? Or is there, somewhere, revolution in the air? As Bruce so sagely put it, “you can’t start a fire without a spark,” but where’s the spark, readers?
