Rejected petition Block the Knighthood of Tony Blair
Allow citizens to determine the worthiness of Knighthood candidates
When people with power can chose to whom they extend that power that is a tyranny. When people decide who can weild power that is democracy.
This petition was rejected
Why was this petition rejected?
It’s about honours or appointments.
We cannot accept petitions about honours or appointments, including requests for individuals to be given or not given particular honours.
We could accept a petition calling for the process for granting knighthoods to be changed, so that this cannot happen if a certain number of objections are made against a knighthood being granted.
We only reject petitions that don’t meet the petition standards.
