Its a load of outdated rubbish that should have died out 2 centuries ago.
I agree totally. A footballer gets knighted for his services to.......er..... getting paid 100 grand a week.
Yet somebody who saves lives gets a lesser award - if that.

Good to see Chris Hoy knighted for riding a bike round a track. Still no knighthood for Lennox despite him being only the 3rd HW to become world HW champion 3 times. I guess it is a populist move from the government in light of Hoy winning the bbc sports personality award.

I think Lennox is the type to swerve a Knighthood, but then what do I know.

Bruno would've been a shoe-in had he not got coked up & mentalised.

Kelly Holmes is a black lesbian.
That blows your racist argument out of the water you idiot.

Anyway who apart from you gives a flying fart about who is a 'Sir' and who is not?!?!
I certainly don't give a shite, apart from a select few it is just jobs for the boys and another huge dent in the tax payers coffers thanks to the 'Royal' family. They are all just a bunch of ****ing piss head German losers anyway.

What are the social benefits of being knighted?

apart from having a fancy title of "Sir" at the start of your name

this alone is surely worthless

what are the V.I.P benefits of being a Sir?

**** you bitch face. Holmes is actually half caste whereas Lennox is 100% black. There is a tendancy to ignore the achievements of boxers and that has now been highlighted.

Jobs for the boys ? how the **** is getting knighted - jobs for the boys. Chris Hoy is hardly going to now become the UK's man in Lagos.

You seriously are the thickest ****wit to have ever posted on this thread and I think you should be knighted for that.

Because mixed race people are infamous for getting it so much easier than everyone else in this country.

Having a Knighthood meaning your the Queens servant, I think black people are done being servants to the European Monarchy.

It is very difficult to argue against a Knighthood for Lennox Lewis as he achieved something unique. Great career even the Americans came to respect which they did not always about British and European heavyweights.
