Arise, Sir Malcolm*

Gary Barlow and Kate Winslet are very lucky. Not only did they get to meet the Queen today as they received their respective CBE and OBE medals at Buckingham Palace, but they were in the same batch, if that’s the right word, as our very own Sir Malcolm Bruce.

It dawns on me that Barlow and Bruce are quite close to each other in the alphabet so they may even have been sitting near each other.

Sir Malcolm and Lady Bruce enjoyed a celebratory lunch with family and friends after the ceremony.  The picture shows them with his new medal.

Congratulations to Sir Malcolm from all of us at Liberal Democrat Voice.

Our newest knight celebrates 30 years as MP for Gordon next year and is currently Scottish Party President. As current chair of the Commons Select Committee on International Development, he has been travelled the world to challenge deeply unpleasant governments on human rights. As  I wrote in June when his knighthood was announced, it’s a fitting tribute for his years of service as local MP, international statesman and campaigner for deaf people.

*Yes, I know the Queen doesn’t actually say that, but, a bit of a dramatic flourish never did anybody any harm.
