Leave it to David Cameron to knight homophobic arsehole Brian Souter in the Queen’s Birthday Honours.


You’ll know Brian Souter not for his devilish good looks, his kind words or his way with a ukelele. You’ll know him for pouring millions of pounds into a campaign to keep Clause 28, the ridiculous and unworkable bit of legislation that tried to prevent teachers ‘promoting’ homosexuality in school. What does ‘promoting homosexuality’ mean anyway? Giving two for one deals on gays?

So keen was BS to not have anyone help a gay child in school or address the subject of bullying or – heaven forbid! – give any information that might save a child from contracting HIV that he personally funded the first ever private postal ‘referendum’ to guage public opinion i.e. to rally support for his evil bigotry (ooh, we’re quite getting into this. We might go and change into something a bit more military).

‘His support for Section 28 is the moral equivalent of the business-funded campaign to maintain racial segregation in the Deep South of the USA in the 1950s,’ said Peter Tatchell, in that winning way he has with words.

And then David Cameron gets in and gives the man a knighthood (yeah, we know it’s more complicated than that but he’s implicated). Well done Number 10. True colours will out etc. It’s apparently for his services to transport… which we don’t even get anyway. He wasn’t doing it for the public good, he was doing it to make millions of pounds for himself and his anti-gay campaigns. Why reward a person for making a bunch of money for themselves? Surely there’s a lollypop lady out there who deserves it more.

Anyways, if you object to this frittering of public honours on the least honourable people in the country, then there is a Facebook page with a petition you can sign. And you can get to it here.

  1. Knighting Souter for his contributions to the transport and voluntary sector but ignoring his abhorrent social & political actions is a bit like honouring Hitler for being an effective speaker.

  4. Aw. Fhanks! Too many of those damn things are handed out anyway. Not that such honoured folk have to be perfect, they *do* need to be judged en totale for their life’s actions. And I’m rather tired of religion-based cuntishness just being blatantly ignored or dismissed as ‘personal beliefs’ … that get-out-of-gaol-free card has well expired, Missy! You are NOT better than us and you do NOT have Jesus in your handbag.
