Find a foreign buyer for PFC and a knighthood may await

Surely, holding a door open for a member of either sex is just good manners?

LESLEY KEATING: Would you dare hold a door open for a woman?

Have your say

I sometimes wonder what my reaction would be if the Queen ever offered me a gong.

Maybe one of those smaller ones, say a CBE. I hope I’d say no.

But many worthy people merit such recognition for their selfless service to society.

So what about Roger Carr? He masterminded the sale of Cadbury to a foreign buyer, Kraft, that has already cut hundreds of British jobs.

Lord Carr also sold Thames Water to German buyers and the Chubb lock company to a Swedish buyer.

Lord Carr is now senior adviser to the US-owned KKR, which has stakes in Alliance Boots.

Anyone want a knighthood for finding a foreign buyer for PFC? Because that seems to be how it works.
