CBE for cartoonist Brookes in honours list
The Times political cartoonist Peter Brookes has been appointed CBE in the New Year’s honours list.
Multi award-winning Brookes, 73, becomes a Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) for services to the media.
Brookes, a six-time winner of the Cartoonist of the Year award, has been satirising politicians and public figures for The Times since 1992.
He said: “I am glad to live in a country that recognises cartoonists in this particular way.
“There will be those who wonder whether Theresa May and others can justifiably say ‘we have got him now’. My feeling is very much that they haven’t. I am not going to stop hitting hard.”
• Celebrated conflict photographer Don McCullin, 81, who spent 20 years working for The Sunday Times Magazine from the 1960s, received a knighthood in the honours list.
