He has sold millions of records and achieved world-wide acclaim as the frontman of supergroup Coldplay but frontman Chris Martin could be set for his greatest accolade yet - the Freedom of Exeter.

 

A campaign is gathering support for Chris' homeicon1.png city of Exeter to recognise his achievements.

The bid that was launched on facebook under the banner 'Chris Martin for Freedom of Exeter Award' and has attracted nearly 200 likes in just a few days.

 

Those behind the campaign have attempted to enlist the support of Exeter MP Ben Bradshaw, the Lord Mayor Percy Prowse and other members of Exeter Cityicon1.png Council.

 

The page states: "Chris Martin, lead singer of Coldplay, is yet to be recognised by his hometown. Please like this page so we can bring it to the attention of Exeter City Council."

Chris Martin was brought up in Whitestone near Exeter and returned in 2009 for a special home-coming concert at Exeter Castle.

The award dates back to the 13th century and recent recipients include civic dignitaries such as David Morrish, who stood down after 50 years in 2011, historic figures such as Lord Nelson and military regiments with links to the city.

I'm sure he would love to have the freedom of Exeter, and (if like London) that will mean he can avail of these amazing privileges:

 

.An 'impressive sealed certificate

.The right to drive sheep and cattle through the city

.The right to a silken rope, if hanged

.The right to carry a (his) naked sword in public

.The right to be sent home in a taxi and not arrested if found bladdered out of his head

 

Pretty nifty prizes I reckons :wacky:
