Petitions for knighthoods.... Can't Post

I've noticed that there's a trend of starting a petition to support causes close to one's heart (*cough*PJ for The Hobbit*cough*).

Today, my attention was brought to this site:

http://petitions.pm.gov.uk/sirbean/

In case you missed it, fans of Sean Bean were looking to petition to have Sean bestowed with a KBE (Knight of the Britsh Empire).... mmm... Sir Sean.... *sigh*

*ahem*

Anyway, this brought up a past peeve of mine.

Why is that they can bestow a knighthood on a Rolling Stone and a Beatle, but not on a Wizard/Vampire?

If I were a Brit, I'd definitely start up a petition to have Christopher Lee given a KBE... I think he's certainly earned it, if not for acting, I think his indurance of being typecast in the same old, same old type of roles and doing so with a sense of humor certainly warrants it.

Any Brits here agree with me?
