i got this from tony blair yesterday.......
 
Bob Paisley's achievements in football were remarkable. It is easy to see why so many people want to see his record formally recognised.
 
This has been underlined by the thousands of people who have signed the e-petition on the No 10 website calling for him to be granted a posthumous knighthood.
 
But this is simply not possible. A knighthood is an honour only given during someone's lifetime. Unlike bravery awards and medals, they have never been granted posthumously.
 
Formally, this is because the recipients of knighthoods are admitted into a particular Order when they attend an Investiture ceremony in person.
 
In practical terms, however, it would also be impossible to decide which of thousands of figures in our country's history, who were not knighted during their lifetimes, should retrospectively deserve such recognition.
 
For example, there are already similar e-petition campaigns for posthumous knighthoods for football managers Bill Shankley, Brian Clough, Jock Stein and Bill Nicholson.
 
But strong cases could also be made for many other high-achieving sports figures as well as authors, scientists and others who were not knighted during their lifetimes. Charles Darwin, Captain Cook, RJ Mitchell, who created the Spitfire, John Lennon and even William Shakespeare are just a few of those who were not honoured in this way while they lived.
 
The fact they were not knighted, however, does not in any way detract from the contribution they made to this country. Their lives and achievements have each been celebrated and remembered in many other ways. But a knighthood is, however, not possible for someone, no matter how accomplished, who is no longer able to receive it.
 
Yours sincerely,  
Tony Blair

It's OK to give a knighthood to Elton John, Sean Connery, Tom Jones, etc., but not to people who have really achieved something. There were also calls for Johnny Wilkinson to be knighted because of one kick of the ball, and I'm sure the celebrity-obsessed git would have done it had people not said "he's too young".  
 
Both Stein and Shankley were not considered good enough to be knighted (they came from Lanarkshire mining villages, after all), which I think is a disgrace (though I actually think the whole idea of honours is so outdated it should have gone in the days of Shakespeare). I presume that Matt Busby (similar background to Shankley and Stein) was knighted because he was the manager of the 1968 team as well as the one involved in the Munich air crash? At least I hope that's the reason, as Jock Stein's achievements up to the 1967 European cup win were more than worthy of a higher honour than the CBE he eventually received. I'm sure that, if Alf Ramsay had been a club manager instead of the England coach, he'd not have been able to claim that his team won every competition they entered in season 66-67. However, like Bliar, Wilson was a celebrity-obsessed t**t, and would gain a great deal more kudos from honouring the England coach than the manager of a provincial club like Liverpool, never mind that of a Scottish team. Like I say, I presume Busby was knighted for the sympathy factor. Stein should have been honoured in the same way at the same time.
 
I found this bit hilarious: "Charles Darwin, Captain Cook, RJ Mitchell, who created the Spitfire, John Lennon and even William Shakespeare...". Perhaps an historian could tell me the relationshop between Bill Shakespeare and the monarch of the day (Elizabeth I?) and could tell me about RJ Mitchell's background (e.g., was he a grammar school boy or a public schoolboy, and was he well in with the upper echelons of government and society or just an engineer with dirty hands?). As for John Lennon, he was hated by the establishment for his anti-war stance and didn't exactly endear himself to anyone when he handed back his MBE!
 
Bliar is talking  s**t, but, sadly, those kinds of honours are not awarded posthumously. I mean, how can they give big bribes to Labour if they are dead.
 
Bob Paisley, RIP. He truly was a great man.
 
Sorry, missed a bit. I don't know what Bill Nicholson achieved. Any Spurs fans about who can enlighten me?

What's happening about the cash for honours police investigation? I thought they were going to 'fess up late Feb / early March. Perhaps Bliar has bribed them to keep schtum until he's stepped down.

I just don't agree elevating people above others by giving them knighthoods and honours.  
 
And dead people don't have the chance to reject them.
 
I thought the recent actions of Jim Devine MP in trying to get Jock Stein a knighthood was a shallow ploy to win votes. However, I think Jim Devine is alright, he seems to speak out for his principles often, unlike the nameless, faceless, silent bloke that represents my constituency.
