looking at his wiki page nothing so remarkable so as to warrant a knighthood when compared to other Sirs .

He did shove a turnip down his pants on Blackadder, that would count as a Knightood!  Roll Eyes

Iam rerluctant to say this ,as no programme outside of sky has publicised the hobby of metal detecting in way time team has...We hear the Arkies on the Time Team saying that detectorists remove artefacts out of context (while standing next to a J.C.B..LOL) But the general public i talk to ,who watch this programme are very much in favour of our hobby..As for his title ,i think there is more worthy people in the queue for a gong Huh

I wonder if he hadn't expressed an ant-detecting view whether this thread would even exist Huh And his "detectorists cause damage by removing artefacts out of context" is I'm afraid totally true.
The whole thread smells of

i dont think its sour grapes more a case of fairness that the recipient is worthy of the award ,which he clearly is not.
other sirs are professors that made important discoveries that benefited mankind or VIPs of global renown .
can you compare tony robinson  with sir elton john or sir mick jagger ?no
once on a time team prog i had a chat with the gent and hes a reasonable bloke ,caught him reading the Sun

the nighhood was meant for stuart hall but for obviouse reasons they had to give it to someone else.to be fair the queen has had a lot on her mind being as the duke of ediburgh's arse transplant went wrong because the doner arse rejected him like.

when you scan the list of Sirs going back many years you admire them for being so impressive at what they did ,and say to yourself 'well done my lads' you deserve your knighthood for exemplary service to the realm , but in all honesty i cant say that with old Baldrick. he isnt a Ralph Richardson or a John Gielgud ,he is a nobody who suddenly got very lucky ..
like trevor philips actually .
thanks for the mods for allowing this discussion ,we need some human interest around here too y'know...
