The very thought of Sir & Lady Beckham makes me itch.

by todays standards he's probably not worse candidate really
at least he never started a war
they will have to give blair one, do you reckon?

it shows up 'honours' system up for pile of kack that it is
i wouldnt to call anyone lord or lady ..mr, sir, mrs but not that..

.well, its not the middle ages & am not a serf......

I think Peter Andre deserves one. So does Jade Goody, the female equivalent anyway.

if he was knighted after captaining a winning world cup team I could understand it.

But otherwise the thought makes me want to cry (kind of).

he doesnt live in this country or pay taxes AFAIW so no, he shouldnt be given one.

I do object to honours being handed out to people who have already been richly rewarded for doing something they love. Honours should go to people who give of themselves to the community and society for no financial reward.

Hang on, there's chance yet isn't there as Tony Blair will have a resignation honours list. Don't celebrate the lack of a title for Lord and Lady Beckham just yet

Oh god, can you imagine Lady Posh?
<<shudder>>

I know, what a horrifying thought as she's already intolerable with the fame she's got!

Hands up who's going to leave the country if she becomes a Lady?!?!?!

i think most of them are - is there any celeb who doesn't get one?

I bet that two year old with the Mensa ranking gets one next year
