Knighthoods become badges of shame in Brown's Britain

Twice this month I have found myself commenting on this blog how the title "Sir" before a name in a newspaper report nowadays increasingly foretells the reporting of some form of skulduggery in one form or another. Now on the last day of the year we learn that one of the prime villains in the financial betrayal of the nation, Treasury Chief and Big Buddy of the gormless PM Gordon Brown, Nick Macpherson, who at 49 is already pulling in a salary of one hundred and ninety four thousand pounds a year while organising the financial destruction of the country. Even The Times seems to find this a bit shameful according to its report on the matter, linked here.
