New Year's Honours

[ #1836 ]

Arghh!

Sade (warning: constant music on this web site) has won an OBE[1]. For services to the recording industry. Why do people buy her records? They're all terrible!

[1] Is an OBE higher or lower than an MBE? Does anyone know? Does anyone care?

  • lower than Member of the British Empire (MBE) as MBE is the highest civilian honour that can be bestowed by the Queen. The Order was created by King George V in 1917 to reward those involved in WWI whose service merited recognition.

    Why did Sade receive one? Well, I imagine quite a few people enjoy her music, maybe even the Queen :)

    • Officer is higher than Member and the Order in descending order is as follows;

      • The Sovereign
      • Grand Master: The Duke of Edinburgh
      • Five classes with Military and Civil Divisions
      • Knights or Dames Grand Cross (G.B.E.)
      • Knights or Dames Commanders (K.B.E.or D.B.E)
      • Commanders (C.B.E.)
      • Officers (O.B.E.)
      • Members (M.B.E.)
      • Medal: (B.E.M.)
  • I really dig Sade. A great vibe and phenomenally fantastic pipes. Even the occasionally good song ... :-)
  • Who on earth is going around awarding out-of-body experiences, and what do I have to do to get one?! ;)
