New Year Loony Honours

Once again, we in the caring sharing party have deemed it appropriate to bestow a twinkle of Loonyness on some well deserving people of our fine isle.

Lord Mike Batt – Minister of Bright-Eyed Wombles & Rabbits
Lord Batt is one of the finest musicians and conductors of his or anyone else’s generation. His Watership Down song ‘Bright Eyes’ is regarded by Paul McCartney as one of the best songs he never wrote. This song was performed to stunning effect by our Lord Tiswas Bunny, aged 5, back in 1979. Lord Batt’s first OFFICIAL Loony duties will be keeping Lord Tiswas Bunny in check . . . good luck with that task m’lud.

The Nolans – Ministers of Happy Family Mood Dancing
Multi chart topping, biggest girl group of the universe have longed been overlooked in the annual gongs . . . not any longer, they are now ‘at home with the loonys’, a series that you can watch on catch-up on QuestRedTV

Finally, we pronounce our first corporate honour to all the people who have served us in the shops. Like our wonderful NHS and other key workers, they have ALL been in the front line during this pandemic, but seldom receive any recognition for the valuable service they have provided . . . we salute every single one of you who are now our Ministers of Valuable Counters & Service.
