If he was major contributor to a political party he would have got it decades ago!
Nice to see it, to see it..
What's he been given this for?
Is it for presenting crap like Play Your Cards Right and Strictly Celebrity Something for vast sums of our money?
My apologies. That was a bit grumpy of me, got out of the wrong side of the bed and it was the first item on the radio news. Plus saying MPs had campaigned for it. Then he goes on about how hard he's worked. The undue importance of it annoyed me! Then it was on here! Rarrrrrrrrrrrr
The whole award system has got out of hand and it should be assigned to the history books. How on earth does an entertainer or sportsman get it when there are people who contribute to our society far more than these hangers on do!.

They also get awards, you know. My late father got an MBE and he was neither a sportsman nor an entertainer - neither was he famous.
If you know someone who you feel is deserving, all you have to do is to make a case for why you feel they are worthy of an award and then submit it to the right people.
Or is it easier just to sit back and moan about 'The System'?
I'm really pleased for him, he's been making me laugh all my life, I haven't always liked all of his shows but at the end of the day he came from a poor background, has worked hard all of his life and is still working at 83 and has finally gotten some recognition for entertaining the public for all of that time, good game good game!

Absolutely. Details, including a form you can download, here.
So far as I know every country has some sort of honours system. And it is not unusual at all for entertainers and sportspersons, the world over, to get them - along with others who are not high profile at all. If you look on the honours list which has just come out, I'll bet you will not have heard of 95%+ of the people on it.
CB, stop agreeing with me! This is starting to be a habit and it's very worrying....
25% of honours are given to Civil Servants...in reward for doing a job for which they have already been generously paid for.

Yes I do realise this and they get it deservedly so, its the others I refer to who - how on earth did that Elton John become a Sir - well maybe I can think of one............ 3
I work with a woman who was awarded an MBE and I can't think of a more deserving person. She works flat out and is inspirational. Can't say I'm enthused by the likes of Bruce Forsyth in the same way somehow.
Just goes to show how pointless the awards system has become.
