Michael Cullen got a gong for services to the Australian Shareholders Association (Railway sub branch) which to be frank was a bit of a shocker but this is on a whole other level.
He is the architect of David Cameronâ€™s eye-catching shift to the left.
But critics have questioned why Lino Carbosiero, the hairdresser responsible for the Prime Ministerâ€™s side parting, has been given an MBE.
The crimper to the stars, who has also styled Madonna, Adele, Sir Paul McCartney and Amanda Holden, was recognised for â€˜services to hairdressingâ€™ in the New Yearâ€™s Honours last week.
His Twitter page is now full of congratulations from colleagues calling him â€˜an inspiration to the industryâ€™.
It is understood that he was not nominated for the honour by the PM. Â
Last week Mr Cameron was accused of the â€˜worst kind of cronyismâ€™ after a number of people close to him, including a City public relations executive he has holidayed with and a former deputy chairman of his local party, were given awards. Apprentice star Karren Brady, who introduced George Osborne at the Tory party conference, got a CBE.
Mr Carbosiero has been cutting Mr Cameronâ€™s hair for the past five years, having been introduced by the PMâ€™s wife Samantha.
He was credited with creating a slicker look for him, moving his parting from the right to the left, with shorter sides and more height on top.
He said last night: â€˜I just did what felt naturalâ€™, adding: â€˜David Cameron is an amazing guy. Both he and Samantha are family people and really nice.â€™
