Another one for the ‘You couldn’t make this s*** up!’ file. Dave’s (male) hairdresser has been given an MBE in the New Year’s Honours List, presumably for services to hiding his ever-expanding bald patch:
It’s a rare thing for us to quote Labour MPs, but in this case we’ll make an exception. From the article:
Labour MP John Mann said the award to Mr Carbosiero took ‘cronyism to a different level. It devalues the honours system. Anyone who the Prime Minister knows gets an honour.’
Fellow Labour MP John Ashworth said: ‘He deserves a gong – after all, it’s a tall order to make him [Mr Cameron] look good.’
Contradictory points, but both are well made.
