Quite surprised the writer of Let England Shake has accepted an award from the government but not surprised Cameron's a fan. No doubt his first choice would have been Morrissey and Marr - but we know that THEY think of him!

Miss Harvey, 43, said: I'm very happy that my name has been put forward by the Prime Minister to the Queen.

I think she impressed him when he met her on the Andrew Marr (the other Marr).show. Before then I doubt whether Cameron knew who she was, although his wife seems to be a fan..

Thanks for the link as I hadn't seen it. I have a feeling that most of the songs on that album might sound better live.

After having been a fan for 20 years, I am so outraged by this that I am going to go burn all my Polly Harvey records tonight.
Or maybe I don't give a ****. She can have a whole alphabet after her name gifted by every member of the Tory party and the only thing that'll bother me is: whens the new album out? Will it be any cop?

Sarcasm is lost on you, it seems.

Maybe, I was just ready for the ''sell out'' comments so was poised to act

Agreed - definitely the most important questions. Doubt We'll get one this year (although White Chalk came out of nowhere so who knows).

Second question - Is the Pope Catholic comes to mind!
