Jeremy Corbyn is considering letting voters pick who Labour recommends for gongs in what critics have dismissed as an “X-Factor style” shake-up of the honours system.
It is understood a review commissioned by the Labour leader into how the party puts forward names will look at giving voters the power to nominate people for the awards.
Critics fear the change would trigger a spike in populist choices like celebrities and sportsmen being picked at the expense of politicians and business leaders.
Fewer gongs for politicians. Tragic, eh?
