I'm surprised that he's actually going to accept it.

I just saw this on the Ceefax headlines, OMG! That was the last thing I expected to see!

Haha, how weird that the press will probably be calling him Sir Bono from now on!! As if he needed another boost to his ego... :D

Seems like they give those things away like Crackerjack prizes these days. ;) But good for Sir Bono, merry Christmas.

Argh, 'Sir Bono' is too weird.

no Sir Bono

To introduce clarity into the issue.

Citizens of countries which do not have the British Queen as their head of state get "honorary" british awards.

In the case of knighthoods, the holders aren't able to use the title "Sir".

So we won't really have Sir Bono :)

Recipients of honorary awards who later become subjects of Her Majesty may apply to convert their awards to substantive ones.

Yeah, but that never stopped them calling Geldof "Sir Bob" all the time!

Yeah. If he wants to continue harassing Blair and all those world leaders with his mad ideas about helping others, he'd better accept what they're giving him ;)
