Submission + - Hawking, Lording it up..

Quietly_Confident writes: "A petition on the official UK government 'Number 10 Downing Street' web site is inviting British citizens or residents to impetrate the conference of a life peerage on Prof. Stephen Hawking. The petition suggests that; "Professor Stephen Hawking, one of the greatest minds this country has and has had, who should have been Knighted a decade ago should actually be conferred a peerage [Lord Hawking]".

A life peerage would entitle Prof. Hawking to sit in the House of Lords should he wish to. With recent honours for cash scandals, it would be a breath of fresh air if a truly Great and deserving Britton was honoured appropriately, possibly in the Prime Minster's Resignation Honours List."
