The PM is being taken to task by many, most who dislike him anyway, for allegedly suggesting that a football player who happened to marry a chick who made a successful career, as a modern star of the music scene was slightly deficient in the brain dept.
David Beckham has been a very talented kicker of an inflated round ball.
He indicates a seriously above average foot / eye co-ordination.
He married a more than useful shielagh.
He will have a cotiere of advisers who will be always planning to maximise his earning potential.
He has leant his name to a few good causes.
Nothing he has done outside of the list above indicates any significant intellectual ability.
Many of those that the MSM raise to godlike status because of an outstanding ability at an entertainment activity, invariably eventually display by a subsequent pursuit to gain further rewards, actions that clearly indicate a lack of what passes among the peasant classes as thinking ability.
O.J.Simpson, George Best, Wayne Rooney, Craig Gower, Jesse Rider, Lance Armstrong, Ben Johnstone, Ostapchuk,and many many more.
Had the PM talked, as he is alleged to, about anyone other than Mr Victoria Adams would anybody have cared, seriously.
