Sign this petition to get Galton and Simpson knighted.

Postby PhilGlass » Mon Feb 14, 2011 12:40 pm

I have created an official online petition, through a system that has had many enforced, to bestow a Knighthood on Ray and Alan. This is long over due.

Please help out if you believe they deserve this. PLEASE ONLY SIGN IT ONCE - Any name appearing more than once, or false information will have this petition VOID.

Please help out - my reasonings are stated clearly on the petition - all I ask is a moment of your time to read a few sentences, and enter your name.

Airse Sir Raymond, Arise Sir Alan!

Thanks mate.

We have the main Hnacock society behind us too, who will be promoting it on their site and informing every member. It's early days, but we have a long time yet.

I am often appauled by the people who get Knighted - so many undeserving people, so it is annoying that these two men have not been.

As I state in the petition, as far as I am concerned Galton and Simpson are as much a part of British Culture as Charles Dickens and William Shakespeare. And I do not doubt for one second that their work will last just as long!

Thanks for the signature, much appreciated!!

Thanks everyone - today I received a lovely unexpected email from Tessa LeBars expressing her delight in the petition (and also informing me the Galton and Simpson website will soon be re-designed so keep checking people!).

We teach Shakespeare in schools now (though why stories of murder and paedophilia are seen as appropriate I don't know) but in 500 years time it will be Galton and Simpson who are studied. Their impact on the world of entertainment will last forever.

A shameless thread bump!!

As we have a few new members recently, you may not have seen this - it doesn't matter if you're from England, The UK, America, or Mars. Anyone can sign it. Please support this cause if you believe in it. Thanks.
