Regarding those who like the sound of "Sir Richard"... Does the honour involve any pledge to God? Could be a tricky one. Maybe RD could get HRH to use (uncooked) spaghetti instead of a sword?


I thought it was only footballers, pop-stars and so on that get honours these days?

Personally, I would like Prof Dawkins to take a seat in the house of lords! Lord Dawkins has a nice ring to it.

Edit: Do it here! http://www.lordsappointments.gov.uk/

Would we need to bow? online? Is there an emoticon to do that? :-)
