Withdraw Brian Souter's Knighthood

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.

  • Andy Rock 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.

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

  • Anonymous Soutar and his hate fuelled homophobia, his ignorance led sex education and his shonky business practices DO NOT represent me on any way. The man is a buffoon
