Sir Andrew Motion.Poet Laureate. Ex. UK.

It’s not often British poets get knighthoods, though nowadays they tend to dish out the honours list rather lavishly to say the least. Our dear old Benji Zephania refused outright his CBE for political & moral reasons, as well as poetical, he reckoned such type of honouring destroyed the soul of the poet. But at least we can say about our Andrew, he’s a true blue academic & didn’t flinch when his turn came.
