    Lord Coe

    Just been watching the 1 year to the Olympics presentation.
    Seb Coe (nothing against the guy), was he knighted, I can't remember, but why is he Lord and not Sir

    He was knighted and he wasn't.

    he got a KBE (Knight Commander of the Order of the British Empire) a life peerage and became a Baron, therefore Lord Coe

    He should be more famous for his comment in 2008 regarding a possible GB football team for the Olympics, when told the Scots and the Welsh might object he said "Fuck'em"

    Worth a baronetcy on its own

    Cheers Tel, so a KBE trumps a knighthood, he must have done a bit more than run quick to get that.

    Successful, rich, titled, well connected etc, so obviously I despise him with a vengeance - but overall I think he does a pretty good job.

    FFS man it's the 21st century, just come out and let someone give Ffyon (don't know the spelling but I know it's welsh so probably involves spitting) the seeing to she deserves

    Quite.

    What is it with "celebs" or attaining "celeb status" in this country? It appears to be a quick way to feather nests and earn fame or notoriety at the expense of many deserving people who in all probability do more for their fellow human beings and get nothing for it. Just a well connected ex-runner who somehow elevated himself to some sort of sporting and economist expert claiming all sorts of victories for the country, and stamping all over those who opposed him.
