This Writer has previously suggested that Mrs May’s response to David Cameron’s corrupt, crony honours would help define our understanding of her.

And it has.

If she thinks ending the cronyism that has tarnished the honours system would “set a very bad precedent”, then her understanding of good and bad is perverted.

She is just as corrupt as Cameron was.

Theresa May will not intervene in the official process of approving David Cameron’s resignation honours list because it would “set a very bad precedent”, Downing Street has said.

The prime minister had been facing calls to block honours for No 10 “cronies” after a leaked list revealed that her predecessor has requested knighthoods for party donors, pro-EU campaigners and political aides.

Labour and Liberal Democrat politicians called for an overhaul of the system as it emerged that one of Cameron’s last acts in office was to propose rewards for more than 40 allies, including four cabinet ministers and donors to the Conservatives and the EU remain campaign.
