I can understand Twiggy to a degree, been around for yonks and done a lot of charity stuff over those years...but Harry Kane!!!! It's laughable and completely devalues the honour system. That lollipop lady deserves it more and that's saying something.

Some honours are given by nomination/approval, and others are directly bestowed by the monarchy/state. MBE's are the former. Anyone can nominate someone for an MBE. Historically there are loads of these awarded to transiently 'important' people, for many reasons. If a nominated individual has loads of public support, that will affect their chances of getting the gong.

Harry is a decent enough chap but he is only doing his job and is 24 years old! Become England captain = MBE

I am sure there are plenty within the game currently more deserving.

Alistair Cook another joke really, I rarely agree with Piers Morgan but he is right about Cook.

All those people out there who work tirelessly to help others. Even someone like Rod Temperton, a true master of his craft, didn't get a sniff of an Honour.

If we had won the World Cup it would have been an OBE....

Southgate would have been made a Sir... The rest of the squad MBE's...

Look at Rugby WC 2003 or more pathetically the 2005 Ashes squad for the precedent....
2018/2019.... Keep Calm, no matter the season, we'll follow our team.....
