This man should get a Knighthood. If we give a Sweaty one for riding a bike how come this 14 times World Champion has not got one? Finally Brucie should get get one as well.

Well., if knighthoods are being given for having a complete lack of talent, Bruce should certainly get one. I've never met anyone who could say they actually liked him.

At least darts makes a change from football dominating mainstream sport news, abeit for a short while. Darts should be included in 2012. Apparently a new sport is included for every Olympics. Lets all vote for darts.

Who is Phil Taylor? Why shouldn't we all have knighthoods. The Greeks ended their aristocracy by making everyone a lord (or lady). Lord Lemmy of Kilminster seems to have jumped the gun on this.

I think the guillotine will be more satisfying in the long run. Set up by the war memorial.

Today knighthoods and othere things like OBEs are largely no longer a part of the traditional aristocracy . It now a means of recognising people. I may disagree with some of the choices and the method of selection but by and large it is a good system with historical relevance. Also keep the Royal Family the alternative systems (Presidency) are pointless, just as expensive and the possible candidates to frightening to think about.
