Sir Fred should keep his title

It would be unfair if Sir Fred Goodwin were deprived of the knighthood awarded in 2004 (Janet Street-Porter, Comment, January 24).

The honour was bestowed on the basis of a career of service prior to that time. Granted, things went belly-up later, but if, for example, a theatrical knight or dame turned in a lousy performance now, would that justify calls for their honour to be revoked?
