|Steve Jobs’ Honorary Knighthood blocked
Wednesday March 2nd, 2011Apple’s CEO, Steve Jobs was reportedly blocked from receiving a Knighthood from the Queen after the former British Prime Minister, Gordon Brown blocked the application.
It is claimed by a former Labor Party politician that the offer of an honorary Knighthood was blocked by Downing Street after Steve Jobs declined an offer to speak at the Labor Party conference.
He was put forward for the Honor, which as an American citizen would not have allowed him to be known as Sir Steve – by the former Labor MP in recognition of the company’s consumer electronics.
According to reports, the proposal reached the final stages of approval at Downing Street before being blocked suddenly.
The former MP was told that the decision came as a direct result of his decision not to speak at the political rally. Having Steve Jobs appear as a speaker at the conference would have been a considerable PR coup for the Labour party, and Gordon Brown in particular.http://wirelessfederation.com/.....reless+Federation%29
