New orders

Have your say

There has been no discussion about the honours system in a future independent Scotland. There would have to be changes.

Clearly the words “British Empire” would have to go. A humbler perspective would need to apply.

May I suggest OBG – Order of Bens and Glens. MBG, CBG, KBG (No Russian connections) and DBG would complete the set.

KG could become Knight of the Galluses and OB could become OB(F) – Order of the Bath (Fortnightly).

CH would easily translate to CHH – Companion of the Happy Hour and the Order of the Thistle and Order of St Patrick could be combined to become the Order of Patrick Thistle.
