Darlings of the industry

My sincerest apologies for the headline, already used elsewhere, but it was simply irresistibly poor. The story? Codemasters founders David and Richard Darling have been included in the Queens Birthday Honours.

When SCi woman Jane Cavanagh was unfathomably included in the 2007 New Year Honours, I suggested the Darlings as more worthy recipients. Which means that the Queen basically does what I say. I also mentioned David Braben, so he must be next.

A key point though: the Darlings are both CBEs, whereas Jez San, Peter Molyneux, Ian Livingstone and Jane Cavanagh are all lowly OBEs. The Queen’s obviously a fan of Dizzy.
