Cumbria's Lord Lieutenant has called for an end to the use of empire in honour titles.
Have your say
Just abolish what I think is a method instigated to keep the general public in their 'place',i.e. the class system is alive and kicking, and should be kicked out entirely.
It seems an entirely appropriate proposition considering the "Empire" is very much moribund. Get rid of the whole shambolic system and have something like the Order of Windsor (in the gift of the monarch) or the Order of British Merit? Just a thought
Why are people hell bent on destroying our history.If ethnic minorities object to our history they would be better off staying in their own country.We have a great history in many ways some good and some bad but its ours and should not be deleted.
