Kiwi Prime Minister is idiot for dissing Becks
DO you know who the Prime Minister of New Zealand is?
He may well be the regular contact from NZ to chat with Her Majesty once a month but he is an idiot. Why? He's slagged off David Beckham. It gets even better. He criticised David Beckham while our hero was In his country acting as an ambassador of footballing goodwill. Nice touch Mr PM.
It turns out the Prime Minister spoke "off the record except it wasn't off the record" to a Radio New Zealand reporter and said about Becks "he's as dumb as bat &*%*"….A little harsh?
But you know the response DB came back with? The killer quote? The words that ruined a Prime Ministerial legacy…? Nothing. Absolutely nothing. Not a single word. Genius.

Wanna know why? Well quite possibly because he's a gentleman. Quite possibly because like the rest of us Becks hasn't heard of the Prime Minister of New Zealand…Or quite possibly because our footballing Olympic hero knows it's just best to turn the other cheek. A genius PR move
He's stood firm (and silent) when I and many others would have been dying to fire back with "Hmmm New Zealand. Be nice when it's finished", "Australia's ugly sister" or "why did we spend 26 hours non stop on a plane to get to a carbon copy of Scotland?" The insults go on.
Not for Mr B though. He has the satisfaction of self confidence. Knowing he has the sympathy of an adoring UK crowd who'll back him all the way and perhaps more importantly the sympathy of a nation of good folk who have been rather embarrassed by some pretty silly comments by someone who is now better known for criticising a decent fella than being a decent leader
I'm not saying I'd chose David Beckham as my phone a friend on "who wants to be a millionaire" but when it comes to leading a British Olympic delegation to Singapore in '05 to win the bid then I'd want him. When it comes to needing a massive British icon to drive a speed boat up the Thames and look a million dollars, well guess who?
David Beckham showed a level of intelligence not seen too often from so called celebs these days. In the face of some pretty nasty words from someone who ought to know better he turned the other cheek.
Oh and by the way the 38th President of New Zealand is a Mr John Key… Though I doubt he will be after the next election.
