Untitled[edit]

I dont think the link to "list of people who have declined a British honour" is appropriate for this article, in Britain people tend to refuse honours that are givin by the goverment of the day like OBE, MBE and the like, but the Companion of Honour is givin by the monarch without ministerial advice and people like Harold Pinter and Paul Scofield who refuse goverment awards have taken the CH. Also the link to "list of people who have declined a British honour" is not included in the OM, KG, KT articles but it is in the CH. Here is a link to a BBC report about Pinter being awarded with the CH, Pinter given royal honour

The upshot of all this is that I have taken the link out. Stevenscollege 8/7/05


Im wondering if we need the links mentioned under the "See Also" heading, that are also mentioned in the "Table of the British honours system" box, I dont think we need two seperate links to the same page. Stevenscollege 10/7/05


Who is Sir John Smith in the list???--218.103.208.130 07:45, 21 October 2006 (UTC)

Canadian quota?[edit]

What's the reason behind the lack of a Canadian quota? (I am not Canadian.) 202.89.159.211 09:28, 19 September 2007 (UTC)

Quotas in general[edit]

Not sure if there is any quota. I have researched this pretty extensively on the web and the only references are to Wikipedia. I do know, however, that New Zealanders are no longer eligible for the Companion of Honour. http://www.dpmc.govt.nz/honours/overview/history.html

You know, if you dispute something you are well within your rights to delete it (WP:BURDEN). I too have only seen references to WP. 118.90.44.104 (talk) 11:10, 21 June 2009 (UTC)

Postnominals[edit]

Instead of directing to list of post nominal letters why not use the post-nominals template - such as CH

Onora O'Neill[edit]

I do know Onora but I hope people won't think it a CoI if I change her from "author" to "philosopher" which is what she is known for (as per her Wikipedia Article) and give her FRS as well as FBA. I've also added Peter Higgs's FRS. NBeale (talk) 16:01, 5 January 2014 (UTC)
