The tail end of the furore over David Cameron's honours list has bled

The tail end of the furore over David Cameron's honours list has bled almost seamlessly into a new row over the gong bestowed by France upon the editor of the Financial Times, Lionel Barber, for his "positive role in the European debate" before Brexit. Mr Barber, whose paper tirelessly campaigned for Remain before the referendum, accidentally made public his nomination as a Chevalier de la Lgion d'honneur. Here are some other international honours which have until now remained secret.

The Pierre de Coubertin Medal   Vladimir Putin

For exceptional service to the Olympic movement, honouring its finest traditions of fair play, exemplified throughout the Russian team, whose athletes have also competed in a profoundly "positive" fashion on so many occasions   notably at the women's weightlifting event, though who knows, maybe they're just built like that.

The International Pythagoras Medal for Architecture wholesale authentic jerseys  cheap nfl football jerseys  Bonanno Pisano

For Mr Pisano's design and construction of a beautifully straight bell tower attached at right angles to the ground by the cathedral in his Italian home city of Pisa. And for his positive role in warning of the calamitous consequences of any deviation from the upright, notably with his articles in Pisa Oggi headlined: "Non perpendicular tower will collapse immediately", and "European visitors will shun city forever if we vote Lean".

The Edward Teller Award for World Peace and jerseys cheap the Furtherment of Science   Donald Trump

For his positive role in stabilising global affairs and promoting international harmony, and unstinting devotion to technological progress and the scientific method. By repeatedly declaring "Why can't we use them?" Mr Trump has shown that only through practical observation, measurement and experiment can America's estimated arsenal of 1,538 strategic nuclear warheads, 2,570 non deployed strategic warheads and approximately 500 tactical nuclear warheads truly be perfected.

Ordine al Merito della Blairisma (1st Class)   Jeremy Corbyn

For unstinting devotion to the winning of elections and the perpetuation of electorally successful strategies. For his positive vision of a new kind of politics. Very positive. At least, that's what it says on the note attached to the brick that's just come through the window.

Ordine al Merito della wholesale jerseys Blairisma (2nd Class)   Orlando Bloom

For self promotion on the Italian seaside. Let a Wholesale China Jerseys thousand Blooms flower.

Russian Order of the Empress (with plumes and rosettes, services to Animal Welfare)   Seventh Earl of Cardigan

For his heroic action in the engagement at Balaclava, during which so many horses were so vigorously exercised during the overwhelming triumph that day. As noted by the French observer, one Marshal Pierre Bosquet, "It's magnificent." Unfortunately space constraints mean the rest of his citation has not been included.
