London, 15th June 2013: Edgar Venal has paid requested me to inform you that he has received a knighthood in the Queen's Birthday Honours.

The citation reads: "for services to the advancement of the good name of the legal profession".

Responding to the honour, Edgar Sir Edgar modestly said: "My knighthood confirms my superiority over all you riff-raff. Not that I want to boast about it."

Sir Edgar has asked me to say that reports that he paid for the honour are entirely without foundation and that the name of anyone suggesting this will be passed to the Venal & Grabbit Defamation and Extortion Department.

Regarding the fact that Sir Edgar's name was not mentioned in the Honours List, he said: "as everyone knows, I am a modest man. I therefore requested that my name be omitted from the List".

He concluded: "I shall uphold all that is good about the honours system. My knighthood changes nothing. Just so long as you address me "Sir"."
