    Re: Ted Kennedy to receive knighthood from Queen Elizabeth

    The same Queen that gave Mugabe an award some years ago, before again revoking it some time later.

    Who cares who this woman thinks is "worthy" of receiving her knighthood? It's like saying we should care what the Pope thinks on political issues in such-and-such country. They are monarchs of an old, dead order.

    The Queen is a lower standard.

    The image of a long sabre heading towards Kennedy's booze soaked skull is delightful nevertheless.
    It's nothing more than X's and O's.

    This is New Labour's choice and what do you expect from them?
    Thanks. I didn't know this.
    Does the Queen perform the act, and if so, can she refuse to preform it?

    I think giving it to Kennedy is wrong and actually cheapens the Honor, but of course that is just my opinion.
    Do you think he deserves it by England's standards?

    But then again, did Colin Powell actually deserve the Honor by England's standards?

    Excuse me, before you rant at my monarch you should probably remember:

    The Queen does not make the choices, the PM does.

    It is Brown who is to blame not her.

    You are Canadian and you have some connection with the Royal family but it is looser one and it your choice is you want to support it. In Britain we are very attached to such ancient institutions and we don't take kindly to such attacks. The Queen is certainly a hell of a lot better than President Blair. We certainly care what the monarch thinks, she is the simple of our nation.
