Petition Reform honours forfeiture and mandate automatic forfeiture for racist recipients
The Honours Forfeiture Committee works in private and does not publish its decisions. The process must be made open and accountable.
Additionally, recipients of honours who incite or encourage discrimination do not face automatic forfeiture. This must change.
Honours bestow credibility and prestige on individuals as a reward for bravery, achievement, or service to the UK. Some recipients later prove unworthy.
To maintain confidence in the honours system, the Honours Forfeiture Committee should deliberate in public, and its decisions be published and subject to judicial review.
Britain also prides itself on our laws against discrimination, and individuals who have incited or encouraged discrimination must be automatically stripped of their honours.
