    Campaigners have expressed outrage after the last British "Dambuster" was snubbed in the New Year's Honours - but David Cameron 's cronies were rewarded.

    George "Johnny" Johnson, 94, was a bomb aimer on Operation Chastise, Guy Gibson's famous mission to destroy the Ruhr dams, using Barnes Wallace's innovative "bouncing bomb".

    Friends had launched a campaign to reward him for his bravery and charity work over the decades with a knighthood.

    This is the state of the British new years honours list. IMHO its not worth anything anymore.
    At least you have the respect and admiration of the people you served George "Johnny" Johnson.

    Respect and a sharp hand salute to you sir
