Knighthood to see you.....

Early day motions are parliamentary graffiti, a chance for MPs to sound off on the Commons order paper on the big issues of the day.

More than two dozen backbenchers, including Roger Williams and David Davies from Wales, have signed one of these motions today calling for Bruce Forsyth to be knighted.

(He is already a CBE, one step down, although that doesn't have the same cachet as Sir Brucie).

The man himself may wear a rather dodgy syrup, his jokes are older and cheesier than he is but you have to admit anyone who can entertain family audiences across generations probably deserves whatever gongs are going.
