Robert Smith Nominated for UK Honour by US citizen
Here is a picture of an official confidential nomination of Robert Smith for a UK Honour http://www. myspace.com/carinatootle/photos ( http://a2.l3-images.myspacecdn.com/images02/143/d3eb0b71ec784e6cbf6c4e635cba0ddb/l.jpg ) Time for you all to write letters of support or nominate him yourself. You do not have to be a British citizen to participate. Info about how to do this at www.direct.gov.uk
Note: Sorry Robbie if you don't want the award but it makes sense to me that you get nominated if you haven't been already. It is, after all quite standard procedure for the British Monarchy to award British artists. That the Monarchy is sleeping on many of its talented may be an actual fact. Out of those many, I chose to nominate you for some reason. Sorry also for calling you Robbie. American artists are not known for great etiquette. The form states not to notify the nominee for reason of disappointment if the committee does not accept the nomination but I think you can handle it. Historically some artists have refused the honour but I think C.S. Lewis might accept it today. The British Empire is, afterall, now but a small island although a great one. The actress Helen Mirren, I read, recently almost refused the honour but was persuaded to accept by her colleagues. Best Wishes.
