I didn't say that the system worked or that gongs were given to the right people. What I said was than in a debate as to whether Stanley Johnson should get one, his history of domestic violence is relevant.Have you seen some of the people who have received honours in recent years?
The first and most recent that jumped immediately to mind was Gavin Williamson. Other dishonourable recipients are available. They are often bungs for pals and past favours/donations.
It would have also been relevant to point out how corrupt the system is, and that honours are often given to those who sell arms to countries that arguably shouldn't be allowed to buy them, cronies and sycophants.
