Billy Connolly is a comedian , actor , musician and proud Glaswegian who today has been awarded a Knighthood in Queens Birthday Honours List , Billy has been making the country laugh since he left the Glasgow shipyards in the 70s to embark on what has become a phenomenal career of both stage and screen , now he is an international Star and a Knight of the Realm and it couldn't have happened to a nicer bloke.

My first encounter with Billy was in the late 70s when I went to our local cinema to watch his documentary film Big Banana Feet , back in those days he was big , brash and unpredictable , very blue but funny as hell.



These days in his 70s Billy is a little calmer but no less funny and still a little blue.


Congratulations Sir Billy , top bloke and true ambassador for Scotland.

Well done Billy.

Not bad for a man that said "Phuq oph" In front of the queen.

Really glad, a great comedian and he seems so down to earth.
I nearly bought his old house in Windsor a few months ago but was beaten to it

Manufactured distraction, like Brexit, the fire, various terror attacks...

I would imagine she's used to it from her husband.

"Good morning Philip"

"Is it? F*ck off"

Anyway, congrats Sir Billy. You've earned it.

If you'd approached the Big Yin back in the 70's or 80's and asked he'd accept a knighthood from her Maj he' possibly have told you to g'way. 'n'$hite, he sold out long ago though, I still respect him as a comedian and of course he's scottish as well...

Sigh... These awards are arranged weeks or months in advance.
The announcement of this particular list is tied to the Queen's "official birthday", which happens every year at about this time.
You can't label everything that happens as a distraction. Life is so full of events that some of them necessarily happen at the same time.

I don't see it as selling out mate , it's an honour he's earned and I doubt he'll be lording it up , no doubt he'll have the piss ripped though.

Sigh, if its in the media, its mostly distraction.
