Walter Mitty style “Master Martial Artist” awarded MBE by award committee

Probably the funniest story for a while; a Walter Mitty like fantasist is being awarded in the Queen’s honors list. Which just goes to show how well qualified you have to be to make the grade.

Not only isn’t Professor Alan Stanley Thornton a “professor”, he’s also 10th Dan of a form of Karate that nobody has even heard of.

Oh, and he’s already claiming the title “The Most Noble the Duke of Clermont de Tornesse” which he claims was awarded to him by “a friend”. 

Needless to say, the Cabinet Office is looking like a bunch of tools.
