It's bad enough getting e-mails crowing about people being "honoured" by some queen or other, but when I reached the "Right Hon Sir" John Redwood I just threw up my breakfast all over my screen. So, all's right with the world then. And a happy Brexit to you too.

Hello I think that should be headed '2019 New Year's Honours ' not Queen's Birthday Honours'! Kind regards Trudy Watt

Peter Atkins
I expect I am the 94th person to point out that it is the New Year's Honours list, not the Birthday list.
Peter Whipps
I'm sure you've found by now that the headline reference to "Birthday" Honours is not quite correct!
Janet BROOKS
I am delighted to see that Philip Pullman is being honoured. His books are a universe unto themselves to which his readers are privileged to escape. My life would have been the poorer had I not discovered them.
Ann Currie
Do you mean new year’s honours? If not, this is a serious leak. Neither of the Queen’s birthdays is near
James Gibb
I was a bit surprised to see this list advertised as the Queen's Birthday Honours list. It looks rather like the New Year's Honour list. The Birthday Honours appear in the summer, or have done for a very long time.
Peter Davies
Presumably the New Year Honours List not as shown in your headline.
Roy Waters
The newsletter states "Queen's Birthday Honours" but the list itself is headed and correctly so, "New Year's Honours 2019". The Birthday Honours are published in May / June around the time of the Quenn's oficial birthday.

We apologise for the error concerning Birthday/New Year Honours....and thanks to all who noted it to us so promptly...
