The Queen's Birthday Honours List

A number of notable people earned Honours from the Queen today, including the philosopher Myles Burnyeat (Cambridge) earning a CBE and the classicist Martin Smith (Durham) earning an OBE. No academic in political science earned honours this round.

In other news, I was delighted to see Christiane Amanpour from CNN and Liberty's Shami Chakrabarti both earn CBE's, and the great footballer Ryan Giggs earn an OBE.

A full list of the Queen's Honours can be found here.
