Arise Sir Vince and Sir Danny?

Newspaper speculation about forthcoming honours lists is often wide of the mark, but here is the Mirror website this evening:
Ousted Lib Dems Vince Cable and Danny Alexander are due to get knighthoods in a move that will spark a fresh honours row. 
The two former Coalition Cabinet ministers are believed to have rejected offers of ­peerages from ex-Deputy PM Nick Clegg in the ­dissolution honours list. ... 
Two more of Mr Clegg's allies, former MP Annette Brooke and film producer Pippa Harris – a friend since his university days – will be given damehoods. 
Mr Clegg also nominated Lib Dem donor Anthony Ullmann for a knighthood, sources claim. 
Veteran politicians Sir Menzies Campbell and Sir Alan Beith are also tipped to be among up to 10 Lib Dems in line for peerages.
