A Knighthood for Alasdair Milne sign now

We the undersigned request that Alasdair Milne be given a Knighthood.

Alasdair Milne was the Director General of the BBC from 1982-1987 and is regarded as the last decent Director General the BBC ever had. Alasdair took over the BBC at a difficult time following the Falklands War but the programmes that went out during his time as the Director General were a damn sight better than todays output there is no question about that. The trouble with todays bosses is 1) they haven't being trained in life specifically like the older generation have 2) their attitudes towards people are disgusting and 3) they couldn't care less about the output that they let go out on the screen where as in the old days people like Alasdair Milne and Bill Cotton took pride in their work. Alasdair was also the last Director General of the BBC to take the licence fee bloody seriously and he is the only Director General from the old days that has never being Knighted. It seems very unfair that he has being left out when it comes to honouring people for their services especially when certain other people were Knighted and didn't deserve to be. By this I mean that BLOODY John Birt who destroyed the BBC with his methods and yet he was made a Sir and eventually a Lord. How this came about I don't no because honouring John certainly wasn't on merit I can assure you but there again he has plenty of cronies in the political world who will no doubt put in a good word for him. Its common knowledge that the Birt years at the BBC from 1992-2000 were loathed and how the corporation survived for eight years under him god only bloody knows. John Birt is also regarded as the worst Director General the BBC has ever had and the day he arrived at the BBC to take control was the day the corporation started going downhill and the corporation has never being right ever since John Birt was appointed as the Director General but yet he gets honoured and poor Alasdair Milne who I get the impression is one of us and has the British public's interests at heart is overlooked. Alasdair was a far better Director General than crackpot John Birt and its time he was rewarded for his services to broadcasting.
