Debate on the UK Honours System

To coincide with the announcement of The Queen's Birthday Honours List, I was invited to debate the merits of the UK Honours System by the Speaker's Corner Trust, in partnership with the British Library.

The debate format is untraditional in that it is presented in an on-line written format of Proposition, Response and Conclusion.

The debate ("Honouring the Twenty-First Century") may be read at this link:

The Speaker's Corner Trust, which was founded by its current director Peter Bradley, is a registered charity which promotes free expression, public debate and active citizenship. Former Czech President Vaclav Havel is the founder patron, and the The Rt. Hon. Jack Straw MP and Sir George Young, Bt., MP. are amongst the members of its Advisory Council.
