I reckon the Guv would decline any such honor in the tradition of David Bowie, Paul Weller and John Cleese. Of course, those gentlemen refused only one honor - "The painter LS Lowry never wanted to be seen to rise above his station, declining first the OBE, then the CBE, then a knighthood, then the Companion of Honor (twice). He holds the record for turning down the most nominations."
Speaking of Cleese, I note the recent passing of Andrew Sachs (long-suffering Manuel of Fawlty Towers).
Speaking of honors, Jeff Lynne will ascend to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, making him the last Traveling Wilbury to do so! A pity they probably won't put Roy Wood in the hall for ELO as he was on just the first LP. Replies:
