A Knavish Knight!

The Daily Telegraph this morning concentrates on the Bromsgrove Bimbo and a Tory Knight, Sir John Butterfill, who it reports "was knighted in 2003 for his services to Parliament" ... read the report here and you will probably reflect that most of the services seem to be to himself. All within the rules, Sir!! It would seem timely to remind my readers of what this blog had to say about dodgy knights on the last day of last year, linked here:

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. Know a Knight - Watch your Wallet!
