ted Kennedy to get knighthood

#1
To further cement our special relationship with the septics our glorious leader has awarded that well known car driver off bridges an honorary knighthood.
No doubt, the family of the young girl he left in the car will be suitably impressed.

Is there a source for this award to a man who succored and supported the Terrorist who were killing our citizens, the IRA.

If true, no wonder I have total contempt for awards.

Apart from Brown trying to wheedle his way into the septics good books, did they say why he "deserved" this "honour", any citations etc

Even for Gordon Mugabe this is an obscenity, and gives the lie to any boast of his that he respects our Armed forces.

The only glimmer of humour in this emetic piece of news is that presumably this is an honorary Kinghtood of the British Empire of which the Kennedys were such staunch supporters, and the only glimmer of relief is that this odious terrorist fund-raiser has not been made Lord Kennedy of Chappaquiddick and Warren Point.

Honours for cash?

And having fcuked up the UK he is now telling the septics what to do

Gordon Brown will urge the US to "seize the moment" to "make the future work for us" when he addresses a joint meeting of the US Congress.

The most imaginitive ploy yet by Labour to discredit the Honours system. Bearing in mind what the original Orders of Knighthood stood for, it is particularly "strange". It can't be for all the favours that the Kennedy pack have done for Britain over the years!

The unfortunate girl's name was Mary Jo Kopechne.

On the other hand, would people rather have or prefer knighthoods given to arrse licking Party Donors, Union bosses and Bankers - or even Tony Bliar ?
They gave one to Mandelson too !

When all is said and done, these things don't really mean much to any except those who think they are the bees knees.
The Honours system has been so misused and corrupted, perhaps it is a fitting honour one of the Kennedys.

This stinks on a considerable number of layers.

The whole Family have done nothing for this country, his Father was the @rsehole who told the President NOT TO SUPPORT UK during WW2.

Mind you I expect the family of Mary Jo Kopechne. are totally impressed.AAAAAAaaaaaaaaaaaaaaGGGgggggggghhhhhhhhhhh

What is it with this obsequious approach by our politicians to the Yanks it's beginning to make me feel bilious? Thatcher/Reagan, Blair/Bush, Brown/ Obama. They, the Yanks even have the paranoid cheek to fingerprint us Brits when we visit their country why are we not doing the same to them when they visit the old country?

It is possible to be an Irishman and support the ideal of Republicanism, but without achieving it through the use of violence, as demonstrated by the PIRA... :thumright:
