“It is astonishing and hypocritical that Theresa May introduced the Domestic Abuse Bill as her last-ditch attempt at a domestic legacy while also approving a knighthood for a man convicted of domestic abuse . . .” - @ManduReid.

If abuse and subsequent conviction no longer disqualify someone from a knighthood, I look forward to seeing Sir Gary Glitter in a few years. An absolutely shameful decision by @theresa_may.

Geoffrey Boycott: ‘I don’t give a toss’ about criticism of knighthood.

Andrew Strauss probably deserves a knighthood, put it this way he deserves it much more than Boycott!.

Geoffrey Boycott: I don’t give a toss about knighthood criticism.

@andytoots Yeah, the switch was telling. “Unless you want to talk about my knighthood or cricket I couldn’t give a toss” - pretty disgusting bloke. no one is THAT Yorkshire. Except a monty python character..

Geoffrey Boycott a knighthood for services to women? Really? Really ..... and by a nominal woman too .....

Why was Chris Grayling overlooked for a knighthood? This travesty must be corrected at the first opportunity. #honourslist.

The company you keep tells a lot. Giving knighthood to abusers says all you need to know about a majority of the Conservative party. Remember, Jimmy Saville was a proud Conservative!.

Exactly! I struggled to express my thoughts eloquently regarding #Boycott’s knighthood. @anandMenon1 nails it..

“What’s that sir you battered your wife ?” “Yes” “Oh here’s a knighthood”.

@markaustintv My Father turned his Knighthood down as he did not believe in a class system. 40 years of volunteering was his reward. He did not agree on *celebrity* awards..

@Jackson_Carlaw @theresa_may The same system rewarded a convicted wife beater with a knighthood. Says it all really 🙄.

@WEP_UK @ManduReid Might abuse a woman etc not that I want a knighthood or anything lol there u go Geoff, the decent thing to do would be to admit your not worthy.

Geoffrey Boycott’s knighthood is a scandal. His values are not those of modern Britain. This is from The Observer, 7 March 1982..

Geoff Boycott knighthood criticised by domestic abuse charities Jail rather than Knighthood might be more appropriate..

@vicderbyshire I absolutely object to @theresa_may giving Geoff boycott a knighthood. To honour an abuser in this way is a disgrace. At the same time the proroguing of Parliament loses the domestic violence bill. Tory values..

@LeaveEUOfficial @GeoffreyBoycott KnightHood really? Wonder if he would try it with a man like that #Coward #Pussy.

Geoffrey Boycott says he ‘couldn’t give a toss’ at knighthood backlash.

This actually makes me feel sick. These are the kinds of people given a knighthood by our most senior politicians in Great Britain..

Boycott is a nasty little man. That @theresa_may saw fit to give him a knighthood today is unbelievable..

@JimMFelton I see the Geoffrey Boycott defenders are out already after his interview with Martha Kearney. Who thinks Anne is a real person and not just a bad faith account trying to manufacture consent for awarding a knighthood to a man convicted of domestic violence? 🤔 #BlockTheBots.

GEOFF BOYCOTT???Convicted of beating up his girlfriend and offending West Indian cricketers with crass racist DO YOU GIVE A BULLY AND A RACIST????A KNIGHTHOOD# DISGUSTED.

Like May, I’m a fan of Boycott’s cricket, but the domestic violence conviction should surely preclude a knighthood..

The Club would also like to congratulate Sir Andrew Strauss following his knighthood for his significant contribution to English cricket.
