It is the last day of 2016.
It has been one hell of year.
It may have been one hell of a year for you on a personal level.
The UK now has an unelected Prime Minister at the helm steering us into uncharted BRexit waters; a PM who initially tried to appeal to many claiming she wanted to unite the UK and be there for all of us.
It was of course just spin or lies or both.
Think back to "trousergate" and those £1,000 leather trousers Mrs May thought appropriate for a photo shoot.
But if you need confirmation that May is just more of the same Tory trash take a look at her New Year Honour's list.
Take a look at one David Ord.
The Guardian writes "A company boss who has given nearly £1m to the Conservative party and long-serving MPs from across the Commons head the list of political figures who receive a knighthood in this year’s New Year honours list. David Ord, who becomes a knight in the new year, is a co-owner of Bristol ports and a member of the Conservative party’s Leaders’ Group, who were granted exclusive access to cabinet ministers under David Cameron and George Osborne. He has given more than £930,000 to the party since 2013. Ord, a major opponent of the Severn Barrage, was once embroiled in a donations row after it emerged in 2014 that Bristol North West MP Charlotte Leslie had failed to declare the port owner’s donations to her local party on time, despite making numerous parliamentary interventions about the project. She apologised and was cleared of wrongdoing by the parliamentary watchdog."
How do you view that "honour"?
Surely it highlights government and policies for sale to the highest bidder.
The farcical honours system probably has always been rotten to the core but at least at times it was not so obvious.
The New Year's honours list has the usual celebrity mixture with a few strange ones in the mix. Victoria Beckham is awarded for fashion? Veteran comedian Ken Dodd is awarded even though at one time he faced tax dodging accusations?
In 2015 Dodd was still sticking two fingers up at taxpayers. The Liverpool Echo report at that time was titled "Ken Dodd jokes about tax evasion case at awards bash and says it shouldn't stand in the way of a knighthood."
But hey Doddy remains a loyal Tory supporter and was a firm fan of Margaret Thatcher.
At least one person has refused to take part in this year's honours pantomime.
"Lynn Faulds Wood, the former presenter of consumer affairs programme BBC Watchdog, has turned down an MBE in the Queen’s New Year Honours, saying the system has to be dragged “into the 21st Century”.
The Scottish television presenter said that she would be a “hypocrite” to accept the honour for her work on consumer safety."
Kudos to Ms Wood.
Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn has accused Tories of ‘making a mockery’ of the system.
Mrs May is continuing the Tory tradition of spitting on British democracy.She previously promised to shake up the honours system. Now she is accused on cronyism.
And sadly too many people just will not see it for what it is-a disgrace.
