Complete 2019 New Year’s Honours List

The 2019 New Year’s Honours List was published today, on 29 December 2019, and in case you wanted to see the full list, without it being in a PDF, I’ve published it below – minus all the ads and other slowness that mainstream news media will surround their honours list content with.
