Dat oude bureau werd gesloopt, er werd voor miljoenen een nieuw bureau buiten het centrum gebouwd maar toen men daar eenmaal zat bleek men toch een bureau in het centrum te missen en bouwde men weer een nieuw bureau op de oude plek...
Dat oude bureau heb ik nog wel eens vast gezeten voor verfspuiterij
daarna enkele reis naar bureau HALT, maar dat bleek toch een meer ritten kaart...
Dat kunstwerk loop ik bijna dagelijks langs...
Is in slechte staat, zou wel een nieuw likje verf kunnen gebruiken!
The medal, scrapped in 1992 by Sir John Major, will be reintroduced next year to mark the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.
The return of the award will be announced at the Commonwealth summit in Perth, Australia, today.
Around 300 BEMs will be awarded in each honours list. Mr Cameron said the medals will go to people who do community work that is currently going unrecognised in the honours system because they do not qualify for higher honours like the MBE.
Created in 1917, the British Empire Medal was awarded for “meritorious service” by either civilians for military personnel deemed worthy of recognition by the Crown.
Like other honours, the Order of the British Empire for Meritorious Service was divided into a civil and a military section.
Known to some as “the working class gong,” Sir John ended its use as part of his drive to build a “classless society”.
Critics said the BEM symbolised social division within the honours system because it was frequently rewarded to manual workers and lower ranks in the Armed Forces.
Mr Cameron also announced yesterday that Sir John is to chair a Diamond Jubilee Trust which will support charities and good causes across the Commonwealth.
Plans to restore the medal for the Diamond Jubilee were first revealed in the Daily Telegraph in January.
Speaking in Perth, Mr Cameron said he was “delighted” at the return of the BEM. “The medal will be handed out in recognition of the dedication and hard work so many people devote to their communities.
“At the moment the number of people being honoured for the services they provide for their local communities is disproportionately low. I am determined to change that and redress the balance.”
Mr Cameron’s embrace of a symbol of the British empire is at odds with controversial comments he made earlier this year, suggesting Britain’s imperial role was responsible for many of the modern world’s problems.
A number of Commonwealth countries still issue the honour, whose holders can use the letters BEM after their names.
