To the editor

I see that, once again, I have been overlooked in the Queen's Birthday Honors List. This is after nearly 30 years of monitoring, speaking on and writing about the murdering quacks of the medico-pharma mafia, the planet-killers of the petro-industrial complex, the spivs, half-wits and quarter-wits who have managed to slither their way into Westminster and the ignorant, lying, cowardly, corrupt, incompetent, derelict-of-duty, impossible-to-insult, Establishment-lackey trash-hacks trying to pass themselves off as national media journalists. Where am I going wrong?
