Warsi and Twigg: Strip Sir Fred Goodwin of knighthood

Shadow education secretary Stephen Twigg and Conservative Party Co-Chairman Baroness Warsi have backed calls from backbench MPs for Sir Fred Goodwin, the former boss of Royal Bank of Scotland, to be stripped of his knighthood.

Sir Fred was honoured for services to the banking industry but there has been a growing consensus that he should be stripped of the honour in the light of the bank's near-collapse in 2008.
