Sir War Criminal

10 senior politicians were hanged for "Planning, preparation, initiation or waging of a war of aggression or a war in violation of international treaties, agreements or assurances" in 1946 at Nuremberg.

Tony Blair however gets a knighthood. Not just any knighthood (like, say, Sir Jimmy Saville's KCSG), he is given the KG, the most senior order of knighthood in the British honours system, outranked in precedence only by the Victoria Cross and the George Cross.


The official Parliment petition website (which can get petitions debated, unlike etc) has rejected all petitions demanding Bliar be declined his knighthood (see left).

So instead please sign this one at

Petition description:

Tony Blair to have his "Knight Companion of the Most Noble Order of the Garter" rescinded

Angus Scott started this petition to The Prime Minister

Tony Blair is to be knighted with the highest possible ranking in the new year honours list, Buckingham Palace has said.

Sir Tony, who held the keys to No 10 between 1997 and 2007, will be appointed a Knight Companion of the Most Noble Order of the Garter, the oldest and most senior British Order of Chivalry.

Tony Blair caused irreparable damage to both the constitution of the United Kingdom and to the very fabric of the nation's society. He was personally responsible for causing the death of countless innocent, civilian lives and servicement in various conflicts. For this alone he should be held accountable for war crimes.

Tony Blair is the least deserving person of any public honour, particularly anything awarded by Her Majesty the Queen.

We petition the Prime Minister to petition Her Majesty to have this honour removed.
