Withdraw Brian Souter's Knighthood

6,405 Signatures Goal: 10,000

We the undersigned are deeply offended that Brian Souter has been awarded a Knighthood in the Queen's Birthday Honours 2011. Mr. Souter ran a campaign of fear and misinformation which was deeply hurtful to the LGBT community in Scotland. The Keep The Clause Campaign increased hatred towards an already victimised group and saw a corresponding increase in violence against LGBT people. We believe that it is wrong for such a person to be given such a high honour by Her Majesty The Queen and call on HM Government to withdraw this award.

    I will continue to fight for LGBT rights and make sure that those who fight against them are not to be rewarded for it

    i) The buses and the destruction he has wrought upon them.

    ii) Promoting persecution.

    *Neither* are traits one should find in someone who is on the honours list.

    Homophobia is simply unacceptable, and has to be sanctionned, not rewarded
