I was listening to the radio just now and heard an amusing little story about ex mayor ex leader of the GLC and politician Ken Livingstone.
He apparently turned down an accolade in the form of an OBE (Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire) or MBE (Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire)... which would have been bestowed upon him ceremoniously by the queen.
I find there is something quite attractive about a person who can refuse an award considered so prestigious, plus i appreciate his spunkiness. Though i am surprised they even offered him it considering his political stances and the likelihood he would not accept. I wonder if there were larger games at play.
So i was curious if anyone had any idea of his type??
And what makes you think this?
