What you want - a medal?!

No disrespect to Bradley Wiggins - he's a nice bloke and c'mon: the man looks cool, almost too cool. But knighting the fella because he can ride a push bike reinforces the annual tradition of  the British public saying with one voice: Hasn't the New Year's Honours list become a laughing stock...?

That said, there is one lady worthy of the BEM she has received. Agnes Leask the longstanding Shetland crofter, is a lady who truly deserves a medal. The people who work the land the world over are true heroes. Traditional farmers, like the Scottish crofters embody a way of life most compatible with National Anarchism. The communities they help shape are the sort National Anarchists most desire.
