South West MEP Branded Hypocrite

The South West MEP who was knighted yesterday has rejected claims that he is a hypocrite.

Liberal Democrat Graham Watson is known to have republican views.

He received his knighthood for services to politics and the public from the Princess Royal at Windsor Castle yesterday.

UK Independence Party MEP for the South West, William Dartmouth, has criticised Graham Watson’s decision to accept the honour.

Graham says it is recognition of hard work not just by him, but also by many others in Europe.

    This comes as no huge surprise, does it? Hypocrite politicians are nothing new as we all know. He probably figured that if John ‘Two Jags’ Prescott was willing to accept a peerage, if he accepted a knighthood he would be slightly less hypocritical.

    This is obviously yet another unprincipled politician that does not have the courage of his convictions. It’s lame of him to infer that he accepted it on behalf of others.
