By contrast we see rewarded with knighthoods and peerages those who grow rich in the pursuit of their distinctions or donate their shareholders' or trade union members' money to political parties. We see dameships and knighthoods given to excellent but part-time, short-service regional health authority chairmen; senior health service administrators cream off the CBEs.
As one who has done as the Prime Minister seems to wish and drawn attention to exceptional service, I am frustrated by failure to see this contribution rewarded by some honour. How will what is proposed by the Prime Minister change this most unsatisfactory state of affairs?
