"March 3 (Bloomberg) -- U.S. Senator Edward Kennedy is to be
given an honory British knighthood for his services to U.S.-U.K.
relations and his work for peace in Northern Ireland, Prime
Minister Gordon Brown’s office said.
Brown will announce the award in a speech to both houses of
Congress in Washington tomorrow, his Downing Street office said."

An honorary knighthood for an misogynistic, apologist for
terrorists, whose past has been tainted by scandal and allegations of
witness intimidation and whose livelihood owes much to nepotism. How
transparently New Labour.

I loath that family: we should be banning them entry into the UK not giving him a knighthood.

Discuss

I think a knighthood for the Green job Cpl who stood up to him at a VCP in the 70's would sound an awful lot better.

Oh, and a proper investigation into Chappaquiddick (sp?)

How about we keep the British honours system to the British.

If it is felt he made such a wonderful contribution then I am sure there is something else that could be done. Like a nice letter to his boss!

Kennedy is an abomination of a man. His father was just as bad too. He is totally self-serving and has been found to be totally lacking in moral fibre and has no idea of the truth or what it stands for.
There is no way he should get an honoury knighthood he should be made a life peer and business secretary. Oh bugger we gave that one to the last immoral .......

Hope our Betty runs the cnut through with the investiture sword. She is immune to prosecution, isn’t she?

I wouldn't sell him the steam off my s..t.
Mary Jo Kopechne for starters. This is just Gordon Brown sucking up to the Democrats. Kennedy? he has the family traits. He's corrupt and supports the IRA. Further more, I don't like him!

What do people think of this?

"Create a petition on 10 Downing Street website:

We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to...repeal the knighthood awarded to Senator Edward Kennedy.

US Senator "Ted" Kennedy is completely undeserving for the honour of a British knighthood, through his overt support, for decades, of Sinn Fein/IRA. He actively campaigned (both in the US and the UK) against British Army efforts to defeat terrorism in Northern Ireland and continued to raise funds for the IRA (through NORIAD) during the IRA's bombing campaign in mainland Britain. His knighthood would be an affront to all British servicemen and women and all British subjects who fought against terrorism."

For those more eloquent than I (pretty much everyone) please amend.

make us feel better though - the time when good men just keep their heads down and pretend it's not happening is the time it's all over. We don't do apathy.

Send it to The Sun. The media can do more damage than a petition that can be largely ignored.

The honour is for services to Underwater Secretary Fighting Instructing.

He has a PhD with double honours in it you know.
