This is a normal post You object to Britain's most famous philanthropist being knighted?
Or should we not award anything to anyone on the grounds that they might be a secret paedo?

This is a normal post he wasn't a secret paedo, tons of people knew about it., just failed to do anything about it.
In my mind, accepting a knighthood is essentially accepting that you are subservient to a family of scumbag dictators who are kept in charge by sectarian laws .It is something that I disagree with.

This is a normal post They're not dictators though are they
In that you can vote not to have them. It's just that an overwhelming majority don't want that. But point taken.

Bet you'd take one if they offered it though.

This is a normal post The green party is republican
If you want to abolish the monarchy you can vote for them.
If enough people do then the monarchy gets abolished.
It's quite a good system isn't it?

This is a normal post I don't think it's that simple.

This is a normal post Yes
And hopefully in the United Republic we'd retain some form of honours system recognizing high achievers and the unaknowledged deserving.

Republic or monarchy, you'd still be able to function under the radar.

This is a normal post no, I wouldn't. accept it as it goes against my principles.
the assumtion that I'd accept an honour from an institution that I despise and want disbanded is a tad bizarre
. Let me know when the next "vote them out" thing is going on and I'll get down the polling station and vote for getting rid of the cunts.

This is a normal post Isn't the problem
"famous philanthropist".

The "famous" bit implies that they are very vocal about giving money to charity and are very keen to be called a "philanthropist". He hardly gave so much money that it effected his life as many people do. Likewise, Sir Bono.

Some people having honours seems to devalue the honours of people who deserve them. Lots seem gained because of fame, or because of political support.

This is a normal post I agree with all of that
And if I had my way it would be Sir Monkeon OBE
