No need to be insulting towards Bob and his contributions ...civility costs nowt. Regarding SOURCE singers......they're O.K I suppose !!!! But maybe you prefer H P......higher pitched !!!!

I'm not a fan of the honours system, but if I were, I think Martin Carthy MBE should be at the head of the queue. And while we're at it, Richard Thompson OBE as well!

There's a whole shower that accepted "honours" including Jimmie Maxgregor and Archie Fisher.
Notably Hamish Henderson and Marion Blythman refused.

Knowing something of Bob's politics, I think that if he had been offered any sort of government award - especially one that had EMPIRE as part of it; he would have told them where to stuff it.

It reminds me of the day when Hamish Henderson was nominated for an award in the days of the Thatcher government. In protest of the Thatcher government's nuclear weapons policy, he publicly turned down an OBE.
This led to one of my favourite front page banner headlines. This is what The Scotsman made of it -

HAMISH HENDERSON NO B E

Wouldn't it be great if, instead of this sort of lip-service, the establishment gave the respect due to many of the the recipients by supporting what they represented in more practical ways ?

Indeed. So if the ranking goes MBE, OBE, CBE, Knighthood, then giving Mr Davenport a knighthood suggests his contribution to folk music is several degrees of magnitude greater than Mr Carthy's; I think not!

I would have thought a possible guideline could be the esteem of the EFDSS award system, firstly?

Should the likes of John Kirkpatrick, Martyn Whyndham ~ Read, Nick Jones, Dave Burland and others come into consideration ~ or will we simply see the crop of current young thruster trump the lot?

Who cares what the establishment ahinks or says about our music?

A more positive step would be if we all stopped being bitchy about each other. If we could manage being courteous and respectful of each other's life's work - from Jasper Carrot to Bob Copper (all artistic endeavours with a folk club genesis) - maybe, just maybe,   the rest of the world would start to take us seriously.

At least Hamish was nominated ~ reasons for refusal to accept were a different matter! Would he have accepted other than the fact that MT was PM?

Roy Bailey sent his back I believe

Gongs are nominated by individuals from all areas of UK followers and groups ~not sure what happens after that

A local headmistress got an OBE when I was a kid. For ages, I believed it stood for 'Orrible Bleedin' 'Edmistress - my sister was the source of this information

Harry Cox was asked how he felt about being awarded the gold badge (as they still were in those days - they are now gold plated) of the EFDSS.
He said that was very nice but a small pension of 10 bob a week would be more useful!

Bob now has the O.B.E.
   Taffy Thomas once said to me Bob's good pal Ted Poole had the O.B.E.- I was a bit surprised as Ted was not a likely candidate (!)

No, not the usual O.B.E       OVER BLOODY EIGHTY
