Note that Lewis Hamilton has been knighted for driving around in circles, that I am sure he does it very well. I am surprised that all our MPs have not been similarly knighted as they have been taking us mere mortals for a ride in circles for years.

Note that Sir Chris Hoy who was the son of very wealthy parents and educated at a private School did the same but because he's white he never got any flack.

The Honours System is a joke - Sir Jimmy Savile, Sir Philip Green? Now a knighthood for someone who refuses to live in the UK for fear of paying his full share of taxation. 

Pretty sure anyone with the money he has accumulated would live somewhere other than th UK,You never heard anyone have a go at Sir Jakie Stewart who lived most of his life in Switzerland 
Jim n Phil were given their gongs before they became infamous & Savile lost his the day he died.

Your quote that he refuses to live in the UK is pointless & a joke.He can live wherever he wants.
He still pays taxes in this Country and is one of the top 5,000 tax payers in the UK

I personally think this honours system is flawed and Lewis Hamilton receiving a knighthood come on! Maybe an OBE but knighthood?

So Sir Tom gets a Knighthood for raising £32million for the NHS Then Lewis Hamilton gets a knighthood for hiding £32million from the NHS

I should think so considering her earns £40million a year plus all endorsements! I agree that he should have been recognised for his achievement in motorsport but I do not agree that he should have been knighted. 

What about Chris Hoy or Mo Farrah ?
