Lovely words from the Big Yin... him and Rikki Fulton... legends.

On his knighthood, he said: "I have an ordinary background and it was never on the horizon when I was growing up that I might get this."

He said his sister Flo, who died last year, would have loved him getting the honour and he wished his parents had been around to see it.

"I'm not big on pride but whatever the equivalent of pride is that is a bit decent, I've got that," he said.

"I'm a little embarrassed but deep within me I'm very pleased."

He should be made King of Scotland , Just imagine it ....... a catholic King Billy.

Learn history mate. The Marquiss of Bute are direct descendants of Mary Queen Of Scots. Jonny Bute is the current Marquiss of Bute who you might know as Jonny Dunbar the racing driver. Think of rich treble plus treble by 10 x that's how poor they are. That is nothing to the Royal Family who are 100 times richer. But f**k me let the peasants burn in their towers

Am I the only one who thinks this is an antiquated, nonsensical waste of money and, even if not, that it has been devalued anyway. Just look at the names on the honours list. Ed F'n Sheeran? MBE? I'm glad I am a Scot who doesn't feel the need to pay homage to some unelected hanger on.

The Marquiss of Bute has never existed. His title is Marquess of Bute.
