And I knight you...

Salman Rushdie aka (Harry Potter when he gets older if he dosent look after himself) has been knighted for his service to literature. Yes that guy who wrote the controversial book The Satanic Verses published sometime in the 80s.

And numerous other books including Midnight's Children, The Moors Last Sigh, the Ground Beneath Her Feet, etc.

He's the leading exponent of magical realism. Won the "Booker of Bookers" and is possibly in the running for a Nobel prize unless politics stops him.

Sadly, Blair probably ignored all this and knighted him just to get at muslims..

They will knight anybody over there, it's pretty embarrassing.
