Interesting

I see Ted Kennedy is being knighted for services to the IRA. Or is it perhaps for his services to driving or life-saving?

Can anyone enlighten me?

Update: I see it's for killing the Queen's matchmaker.

I thought it rather an amusing aside that recently, when the Obamas bought a puppy, he was first to congratulate them on the breed, owning two himself.

The breed? Portugese water dog! ;)

No its because hes dying Its a consolation prize for never being President like his brothers. Remember Brown is over there at present and is currying favour.

Personally I think its a shite way to drum up business but then you know that if its brown flush it down

If Ceaucescu and Robert Mugabe can receive honourary knighthoods then I suppose Kennedy can too.

It's a recognition that of all the Kennedy brothers he was too useless to bother shooting.
