Sirs a plenty

Remember the fuss about honours for Olympic athletes and how the responsible Whitehall committee could only recommend one knighthood per year for gold medal winners?

Well, surprise, surprise.  Cameron managed to find four knighthoods at once.  The Independent reports:
Knighthoods have been handed to four MPs who lost their jobs, –Nick Harvey (formerly Defence minister), Jim Paice (Defra minister of state), Edward Garnier (Solicitor General) and Gerald Howarth (Defence minister).
What was all that about honours only going to those who had done something above and beyond their normal duties?
