Antigua: Sir Stanford?

Talk Antigua thinks “it is unfortunate that steps have been taken to revoke Stanford’s knighthood.”


  • Unlike you and many others, I think that the Pirate of the Caribbean… should never have been knighted. It was always clear to anyone who looked at his activities would have had questions… serious questions. People – many of them decent people – were so glad to open their pockets and politicians were so eager to back-up their pick-ups that they did not take the time to notice that he was busy picking people’s pockets – worldwide!

    If it was wrong to bestow the honor on him… then it is right to revoke… rescind… yank it away from him. Mshaka @

    Sir Allen exemplifies the essential and quintessential Antiguan culture and identity.
