Surely he must get a Knighthood for that spectacular opening of the Olympics.

I may have been forced to pay for the rubbish but at least I had the option not to watch it.

Maybe I'll be sent to a re-education centre for my thoughts.

It was really impressive - I'd love to see a documentary on it, as I'm sure I missed loads of teh details. Some sort of special recognition for it would certainly be in order, think.

As a right-on communist he would only turn a knighthood down......wouldn't he?

shove the honours and shove the politics as well , he done a magnificent job of showing Britishness? to the world.I think he'll be happy with the acclaim he's got off the public.

I just think the opening ceremony played so much on the country in the late 19th and earlieth 20th century, its like this is how good we were... speaks volumes.

If he got paid to do the work then why should he be honoured, lots of people work and get paid , why should he be given a knighthood for just doing a job.

Lots of peple get knighthoods for 'just doing their job' imho I think he deserves it in this instance.
