Knighthood for Steve Jobs Blocked

According to this story, the former British Prime Minister blocked knighthood for Steve Jobs because he refused to speak at a political event. If true, that is pretty damn janky. frown

The then-Prime Minister refused to knight Mr Jobs in 2009 because he turned down an invitation to speak at the Labour Party conference, a former senior Labour MP said. Mr Jobs was put forward for the honour by the MP for services to technology.
