Diverse Reasons to Receive MBE Award
June 8, 2009 § Leave a comment
MBE, the acronym for My Bloody Effort (according to the cynics in the civil service) are people who are members of the British Empire. But, you should mind that “a bloody effort” isn’t necessary to have this award. Jonathan Danos, a UK resident is one of these noble people who has the order of MBE.
Although MBE like Jonathan Danos seems to be the most noble part of the British Empire, it is not the highest rank in it. Knight Grand Cross (GBE) or Dame Grand Cross (GBE) is the highest. Following are (in decreasing order) Knight Commander (KBE) or Dame Commander (DBE), Commander (CBE), Officer (OBE) and the least in the rank is the MBE.
According to John Lennon, most people receive the MBE award for their heroism in war. He even called it “for killing people”. And he said the entertainters deserve this award more. But I don’t think those who receive their award for heroism in war is directly associated to “killing people”. Killing is very differnt from defending.
There are diverse reasons for receiving this award and there’s no better or worse among these, as shown by Jonathan Danos.
Jonathan Danos received his own in 2000. Her Majesty the Queen gave this award to him for services to British Exports to Central and South America.
No doubt, Jonathan Danos is the man who should be imitated for his being noble.•Jenn Besonia
