Just to correct a few errors in the first post.

1. Palin was not awarded an honorary doctorate on this occasion. This happened a number of years ago.

2. The event was organized to mark the centenary of the Institute of Geography (University of Edinburgh) not the centenary of the RSGS.

3. The talk was at the Assembly Hall (not the Assembly Rooms, which is on George Street).

Well, speaking personally, I would rather Michael was given ANYTHING rather than JEREMY CLARKSON (phteuch) who has an honorary degree from somewhere.

I couldn't agree with you more. Any awards (honorary or otherwise) which have come Jeremy Clarkson's way must have been a terrible mistake and should be forfeited immediately and given to the homeless and the orphans in Malawi. ;)

imkgeo - Ken, who actually attended the event, couldn't have got his facts wrong, could he? Not our dependable Ken? Surely not!! It would be the end of civilization as we know it!!

imtego: In My Terrific, Excellent, Great Opinion.

Nah. Maybe it means something to the person who uses it as their screen name.
