He's a knob and his wife will never be a LADY, she needs a good scoff down her neck.

I wish the media would stop talking about it - it should be so far beyond the realms of possibility that it doesn't warrant coverage. Imagine the nightmare if it gets so much publicity that it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy.

Ohhhhhh, Christ!

And spot the obligatory sick kiddie. Couldn't he find a black one, like Madonna?

If he carries on his charity work for the next 30 years, maybe. He certainly hasn't done enough yet. This could easily be part of Bliar's 'Going out on a high' strategy, it's the sort of vacuous publicity stunt that has become a mark of this government :x .

No , Its way too early and he is too young for a Knighthood, give another 20 years of charity work maybe.

the way i see it, he doesnt need a knighthood, he is minted and has own house wife, kids and more foreign holidays than you and I can have in a lifetime , what more do you want ?

I thought you had to actually succeed in something to go forward for a Knighthood? I suppose he has been successful in being the losing captain on every occasion when it was important. Chav culture pushed by a chav loving Govnt.


Jade the fat slag will be up for an honoury degree next......

He will probably get it just to continue the mockery this gubment seems to want to make of the 'honours' system.

This is pathetic. If this ever happens, I'm off to Aus or anywhere else that there is a little bit of common sense left in society.

Knighthoods have changed completely. Hundreds of years ago, a knighthood was the equivalent of a commission. Young squires would get it (basically) after completing their military training.

A bit later, it started going to people with money ie rich merchant types.

Now, anyone who gives a bung to New Labour is eligible. Also any popular celeb (like Becks) will be up for one as well.

In ancient terms, this translates to court jesters and the criminal fraternity Warriors don't get a look in anymore, unless they are of extremely high rank and about to retire.

"Knighthood for Beckham?"


....................... NoooooooooooOOOOOOOO!!


Unfortunately, it would be so typical of TCB to trail this then deliver as part of his "resignation" honours.

It seems unusual to talk about Bliar and honours without "cash for" appearing somewhere.
