Winner shuns 'toilet-cleaner OBE'

"Film director Michael Winner has said he turned down an OBE in the Queen's 80th birthday honours' list. He told the Sunday Times newspaper, for which he is a columnist: "An OBE is what you get if you clean the toilets well at King's Cross station." "
You've got to hand it to Michael Winner. He certainly adds to the jollity of nations with these sorts of comments. People normally turn down honours because it might compromise their values or professionalism (eg French and Saunders - allegedly) but this is the first time I have heard of someone turning down an honour because it wasn't grand enough for them! Hilarious!
"But when you look at the rubbish who are getting these awards and the absolute non-service they have given to the nation... you say, 'What company am I in?' "
Calm down dear...
