    They all said "Hallo," and felt awkward and unhappy suddenly, because it was a sort of good-bye they were saying, and they didn't want to think about it.

    Was on the Radio this morning explaining how his conviction for beating his wife occurred because of the UK being a member of the EU.

    Couldn't have anything to do with the fact that he was convicted in France of course.

    What a wanker.

    This was Teresa May's departure list and she's heavily into cricket. God knows who Boris will give the gongs to when he gets the boot next month.

    Well, he promised one to Stokes - https://www.independent.co.uk/sport/...-a9006996.html

    Shane Warne a favourite imo.

    Does the British PM have the authority to give a knighthood to an Australian? I could well be wrong, but would have thought this would be the prerogative of the Australian PM.

    It is clearly and self-evidently not the prerogative of the Australian PM to give out British knighthoods.

    But yes, the UK PM does have the competency to award an honourary knighthood to a non-British person.

    That is not what he said, he said he was convicted because in France you are guilty unless you prove yourself innocent and that it is hard to prove innocence in a foreign language.

    Giving a knighthood to someone with that conviction is not good.

    Number of english batsmen averaging in the 40s and getting knighted are getting mindbogglingly high. It has been decades since they produced a 50+ averaging batsmen.

    Not disputing that these are good to very good cricketers by the way.

    He explicitly mentioned his conviction as a justification/reason for leaving the EU.
