Has honours list ever been right?
REGARDING the story about Lee Pearson missing out on having a knighthood (Sentinel, December 31).
Paralympian Lee Pearson believes he should have had a knighthood due to the amount of gold medals he has won over the years.
Lee might just have raised a good point when you think he has won more medals than Bradley Wiggins and Ben Ainslie put together.
However Lee, whoever said the Honours List has ever been fair?

But it does seem as though Paralympians are not held in the same esteem as able-bodied athletes.
Many people believe the New Year's Honours List is just a farce and awards go to the rich.
There have been over the years many recipients who have left us scratching our heads as to why.
I am not totally against an honours list as long as it goes to the right people – armed forces, police force, all front line services, air sea rescue, lifeboat rescue, etc.
Lee Pearson says he's a bit upset at how the awards are given out and believes he should have a knighthood.
I wouldn't let it get you down Lee.
They can't take away what you have achieved and I know your aim is to set up another riding school.
All I can say is what we say in the bookies – better luck next time.
