An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
Ted Kennedy, one of the leading members of the family dynasty that dominated American politics in the final decades of the last century, is to receive an honorary knighthood.
Gordon Brown will announce the award today when he becomes the fifth British Prime Minister to give a speech to both Houses of Congress.
Senator Kennedy, who has represented Massachusetts for nearly 50 years, will get the distinction from the Queen for his services to the US-UK relationship and to the Northern Ireland peace process.
Let’s face. I’ve been losing respect for GB for quite some time. This pretty much puts the nail in the coffin….no pun intended.
