Is Lewis Hamilton MBE now a Sir????

8
Found 19th Mar 2009
I was talking with my Dad the other day and we got talking about Lewis Hamilton getting an MBE and if this now made him a Sir or not and if it did how rediculous this was.

Due to the fact he has done nothing but his job and get paid loads of money for it, then to top it off he lives outside of UK waters so he doesnt have to pay UK taxes!

If an MBE doesnt make you a Sir what exactly do you have to get to be knighted and be called a sir, i've searched the net and can't see where it states what's what?

The orders of the British Empire are in order
Knight Grand Cross (GBE) or Dame Grand Cross (GBE)
Knight Commander (KBE) or Dame Commander (DBE)

Commander (CBE)
Officer (OBE)

Only the two highest ranks entail admission into knighthood,

Thanks for that, thought it would have made a mockery of it all if a 23 year old was now a knight for driving a car and getting paid millions :whistling:

If you have this problem again there is a thing called google and wikipedia... i recommend them lol
You need to have been the former useless Chairman of a failed bank and bring misery on the nation to be called Sir.
to be knighted and therefore to be called sir, you need to shove a lot of money at the labour government
