Withdraw Brian Souter's Knighthood

6,404 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) 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

    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

    Everyone is entitled to his/her opinions, of course. But hate-sppech should not be rewarded by becoming "entitled". The honors system loses credibility if honors are left with or awarded to those who prey on the vulnerable, exploit the weak or are messengers of intolerance. To a degree Souter is each of those. Stripping it is too rare and that is to the detiriment of the system. Please remove this anti-personal-liberty bigot from the UK Honors System, where he has no place.
