Victoria broke ranks and should lose OBE

Victoria Beckham broke with tradition, etiquette and protocol - and, in my view, manners - by revealing in advance that she was to receive the OBE.

I can't imagine what this lady may have done to deserve the OBE but, in any event, to protect the dignity of such awards it is clear that it must now be withdrawn from her after her premature revelation.

In 1965 people handed their honours back when The Beatles received theirs. But in their case the MBE could not have been more deserving. To be handing out the OBE to the likes of Mrs Beckham just does not make sense to me.
