Remove Queens Honours for individuals convicted of child sex offences
This petition had 69 supporters
I do not believe it is acceptable for individuals who commit child sex offences should retain the Queens Honours. Any individual who commits such atrocious acts should be stripped immediately of their award.
Derek Eaglestone MBE was convicted of child sex offences and has yet to have his award stripped; nine months after conviction.
Rolf Harris received many awards yet it took over a year before his awards were rescinded.
Why is the Cabinet taking so long to remove these honours when a conviction should be sufficient. No one should be allowed to retain an award if they commit a crime.
