Tony Robinson and Rowan Atkinson in Blackadder Goes Forth
 
This year's list of honours to mark the Queen's official birthday includes awards for two stars from one of the UK's best-loved comedies.


Tony Robinson, who played Baldrick in the 1980s TV comedy series Blackadder, has been given a knighthood, while Rowan Atkinson, who played the eponymous hero, has been awarded a CBE. 

Sir Tony's award has been made in recognition of his public and political service. He said: "I'm thrilled, flattered and a little gob-smacked to have received this recognition from my country. I'll use my new title with abandon to highlight the causes I believe in, particularly the importance of culture, the arts and heritage in our society, and the plight of the infirm elderly and their carers.

"I also pledge that from this day on I'll slaughter all unruly dragons, and rescue any damsels in distress who request my help."

Rowan Atkinson said his CBE "came as a genuine surprise and is a great honour."

Sir Tony Robinson?  Grin

It's a joke, surely?

The mans a blithering idiot. Just demeans the whole honours system.

I think Rowan Atkinson is more deserving....and he's known the world over.

And Adele!

Ok she's a good singer, but has only been in the public eye for a mere blink.

I think you'll find that while Rowan Atkinson has been more financially successful his career on and off screen/stage pales in comparison to Tony Robinsons.

apart from being on T.V  or singing or riding a bike what have these people done to
deserve Knighthoods. These awards should be given for bravery in action and the likes.
O.k give the O.B.E. etc for lesser things to show recognition, but Knighthoods no way

That's why we have medals Wink Unfortunately Generals get the knighthoods but the lads who do the dirty work just get a medal Undecided

Talking of medals, I had the T.V. on in the back ground but wasn't actually watching. It was a program about the lost film footage of the Vietnam war. They were saying about how those who survived were all awarded a bronze medal and as soon as the ceremony was over they threw them away in disgust.
