Looks like David Beckham will be knighted as Sir David and Victoria will be Lady.

Do you think this is right?

Good grief, no.

And I didn't think this was happening anyway?

Mark you are doing it again. The word KNIGHTED is past tense and implies that it has already happened. He has not been knighted. There is a suggestion that he should, that is all.

Perhaps a thread title like Should Beckham Be Knighted? would be more appropriate?

The whole honours system has been totally devalued during the Blair years anyway- SIR Elton John, MBE's for a cricket team winning two matches.But a knighthood for "golden balls"Beckham?? What a joke.

How about Sir Robbie Wiliams,Dame Lily Allen, Lady Madonna.

I can understand Elton getting one after all he has achieved amazing success during his career ans also he does a lot of good work for Aids charities.
But Beckham? what he heck has he ever done, England have won stuff all for years.

I quite like David Beckham but feel it's a bit early for a K.

ern, it'll be for services to football and the country. Surely he's more worthy than some F.O. suit who planned the destruction of a people's lives in a foreign country?

Perhaps its for services to tabloid journalism. I suppose he is as worthy as some who get gongs but most aren't knighted.
