Rolf Harris OA
Rolf Harris collects honours like other people collect postage stamps. First he got an MBE, then an OBE, then a CBE (Member, Officer, Commander, of the Order of the British Empire). He has also been appointed a Member of the Order of Australia (AM). Now, in the Queen's Birthday Honours List 2012, he has been made an Officer of the Order of Australia (CLICK). I wonder, is that OA or OOA? I've guessed OA. In case you're a bit sniffy about Rolf's art, take note that the Qatari royal family paid $56 million at auction for this Rolfaroo cartoon (1974). As Britain no longer has an empire, shouldn't our honours be renamed Order of the Commonwealth? That would be more suitable.
