And you would have to rate him right up there with the no 2 man in the government........
And it looks as if the Government want to use him in the EU Constitution campaign - quote from a news feed:
"Beckham snubs pro-Constitution campaign
Pro-Constitution campaigners claimed this week that David Beckham was set to be signed up as the face of the "yes" campaign. A "senior government source" admitted that "the last thing we want in the campaign is politicians like Tony Blair, Charles Kennedy or Chris Patten sitting on a stage."
The report claimed that the pro-Constitution campaign would be using "Celebrities, supermodels and sports stars", including David Beckham, to reach out to "younger people" (Mirror, 16 October). However it was later reported that Beckham is set to "snub" the pro-Constitution campaign. One of his advisers said it was unlikely that Beckham would join the campaign and added that he had "not received an invite" (Sun, 19 October)"
