no more dopey david beckham

Well a news feature’s just come on the radio to confirm that David Beckham’s had a private meeting with Gordon Brown PM this evening. I’ve really got to admit that the young lad from the East End, with a squeeky voice and very little education has done bloody well. I’ve no issues whatsoever with his move to the States: it’s not top level football but he’s not capable of playing it consistently any longer. But he’ll make an absolute fortune out there and might just make the Americans think again about the world’s most beautiful game.

He played an instrumental part in the success of the London Olympic Bid out in Singapore – we were at the same party at the Governor’s residence out there (don’tcha know) – and his impact hasn’t gone unnoticed clearly. This is a guy who can make things happen and if the UK’s going to win bids for major events – like the World Cup and the Olympics – and host successful events then David could be a key player on the world stage. A bit like a Beckenbauer but with huge celebrity cache thrown in too. He might just become the world’s most famous, recognised and well-respected sportsman/politician that the world has seen since Ali, possibly bigger.

And to think we used to smile at his awkward, nervous appearances on Parkinson etc. They ain’t smirking now. Even PMs need his help these days. What a success story, eh. Good on yer David.
