Former British Prime Minister Sir Tony Blair may have his knighthood stripped as a petition to block him from receiving the honor surpassed 1 million signatures Friday.
The ex-Labour Party leader received the honor Jan. 1.
The petition against him cites his role in the Iraq War as critical in making him ineligible for the title, according to a report.

Blair is the "least deserving person," the petition reads.
Every prime minister before Blair has been knighted, and knighthood appointments are solely decided by the queen, according to the report.
The current leader of the Labour Party, Sir Keir Starmer, defended Blair and said he had earned the title.
The petition, first posted by voice actor and presenter Angus Scott, alleges that Blair "caused irreparable damage to both the constitution of the United Kingdom and to the very fabric of the nation's society."

"He was personally responsible for causing the death of countless innocent, civilian lives and servicemen in various conflicts. For this alone he should be held accountable for war crimes," it reads. "Tony Blair is the least deserving person of any public honour, particularly anything awarded by Her Majesty the Queen."
So far, Buckingham Palace has not responded to the petition. The palace previously said it was "graciously pleased" to present it to the former PM.
