| people with knighthoods are not knights, modern knighthoods have nothing to do with knighthoods awarded in the middle ages.|
knighthoods and other british empire ( ) aards do not reflct englands curent status in the modern world.
they also do not recognize the value contribution people have made if they are anti monarchy and pro republic.
hundreds of these awards have been rejected by various british citizens as they are outdated and conflict with their political ideology.
this whole farce must be scrapped now.
Go on, tell us how you really feel.
Just because it is highly unlikely that YOU will ever be offered recognition at the level of the Honours List, doesn't mean it is useless, or outdated, or unwanted, or unmerited.
Sure, some stupid sods are ungrateful enough to first accept one, and then return it as a political statement, but that just shows how little they actually deserved the recognition in the first place.
