Forfeiture of Mistakenly Awarded Civil List Pensions in Science
Petition Background (Preamble):
However, the monarch is very unlikely to be able to judge the significance of scientific contributions and must therefore take the advice of various Royal societies.
Such advice is sometimes ill-judged, and a mechanism should therefore be put in place for removing the award; just as a mechanism exists for the removal of a knighthood.
Behaviours deemed to bring such disrepute might include: promotion of known frauds such as 'perpetual motion', illegal promotion of quack cancer 'cures', the blatant misrepresentation of current scientific understanding and the misuse of legal means to suppress legitimate scientific criticism.
