Or: Lord Cameron of Wherever?
Anyone remember Sir Fred Perry? I thought not, because Fred wasn’t knighted for winning Wimbledon three successive times back in 1938. He didn’t even get a *BE. Perhaps Neville Chamberlain had a better sense of proportion than our current Prime Minister, who is on record as believing that he ‘can’t think of anyone more deserving of a knighthood [than Andy Murray].’
I can, but I’m not going to start the list here, because that would be to open up a can of all sorts and sizes of worms.
I wouldn’t dream of denigrating Andy’s achievement, he’s a superb athlete and may well turn out to be one of the greatest tennis players ever. But to be awarded a K for being the guy who broke a 76-year record of failure isn’t the marker I’d want to put on my CV.
Especially if I were to acquire this honour for being the guy who broke the Curse of Cameron.
Still, a Mail headline is worth a few thousand votes, innit?
