Titles for the Boys and Girls – Elevation of Sir Philip May

Giving a knighthood to Philip May for “political services” is absolutely preposterous given his firm’s dubious connections; instead Count Binface would have been a better recipient

One can assume ‘Brenda from Bristol’ will not be amused at news that Theresa May’s garden gnome-like husband has been given a knighthood and Twitter users reacted similarly.

 

Aside from some highlighting the newly elevated Sir Philip’s company’s shareholding in arms manufacturers that sold £15 billion worth of weaponry to Saudi Arabia during the merciless Yemen assault, it should be recalled that this relationship manager at Capital Group was criticised last September by the father of a Kingsman killed in Iraq. Of the then plain old Mr May, Bill Stewardson remarked:

 

“Leaving aside my son’s death, which is difficult, how the hell can we have a Prime Minister whose husband directly profits from companies that avoid paying tax and make a huge profit from selling arms to Saudi Arabia? How can that be? Why is that fair?”

 

With a vast shareholding in the aiders of electoral manipulation that is Facebook and billions in Russian companies also, many of the Capital Group’s other connections are equally questionable. With some of these organisation’s having been involved in subverting the EU referendum result, the conflict of interest between Sir Philip’s business life and role as spouse of the former Prime Minister has been quite rightly questioned.

 

During the 2017 general election campaign, May himself declared: “I get to decide when I take the bins out. Not if I take them out. I do the traditional boy jobs by and large.” Whilst that just made him sound like an oddball, him now receiving an honour is nothing but rubbish.  Frankly, his wife’s one-time fellow candidate in Maidenhead, Count Binface (formerly Lord Buckethead), would have been more deserving of the knighthood.

‘To Thyself Be True’ – Sir Philip and Lady May (as they must now be called) are akin to characters from ‘Wallace and Gromit’ and now they have a strange coat of arms which features a design that contains what looks like two sheaves of wheat.
Brenda from Bristol will unlikely be amused at news of Mr Philip May being elevated to Sir Philip May.

  1. Sir Philip May? I despair. But then again, we have Lord Peter Mandelson and nothing can beat that.
    I do believe in God but He takes a lot of afternoon naps, don’t you think?
