  2. New Sick Kids hospital scandal

    What's people's thoughts on his knighthood? I think what he did was inexcusable, and his failure to accept his guilt since should mean that he is not the right sort of person to be knighted. Let's face it though, he is not the only tosser to be honoured by the Queen, so is this as much about...
