Why he is not Knighted is one of the deepest mysteries of modern history… Well, he’s a Sir in many a book.

  1. And he is most certainly a “Sir” for me.. an exceptional man.
    I have been helping to campaign for a K for “Sir John” for years.. every time a new campaign steps up.. here we go.!
    God bless him.. as an outstanding sportsman and an outstanding Englishman, he has not been forgotten or ignored.. he is not fashionable. It really is that simple.
    And to the eternal shame of the UK establishment and the airhead population who are too much bothered by tv and movie elements.
    Tragic.
