Sir Tony: ‘My knighthood is for my family, not just me’

No-one could be prouder of Workington MP Tony Cunningham’s knighthood than his family.
Have your say
Well done on your knighthood. We should be pleased that local people are doing well. They don't give knighthoods to just anyone and we should be proud and not jealous or negative!
There are at least three "in favour" comments on Tony Cunningham's knighthood.
It seems that if you are a "Workington lad", not part of "that London lot" and finally "an ordinary person" you would also qualify for this accolade.
Is this all it takes! I was under the impression it was a reward for outstanding work and results. I must have been mistaken.
Can someone please explain what Mr Cunningham has done for his Workington Constituency to deserve this honour? We all know that he has worked tirelessly for his own position within the Labour Party, but his constituency, well not a lot as far as I can see.
