Beckham at Royal Wedding. Why not Blair?

1 May


Someone asked me here [in Ghana] how was it possible for a footballer like David Beckham and a failed film director like Guy Richie to be invited to the Royal Wedding when someone like Tony Blair who had led the nation with some degree of success for 10 years was left off. I had been listening to the commentary on the international feed from London and heard the commentators pondering the same issue.

The answer is simple, Westminster Abbey only has 900 seats so in making a selection it was those who have a Knighthood or similar title that were given priority. So far as I am aware Blair has none. -Jay

    Blair got the feel good factor going for a while, A bit like Wilson did in the Swinging Sixties. Guy Richie has made some truly awful films but is more famous for being Madonna’s house pet for a few years. His ex wife has now become paranoid about the loss of her looks and dresses like a prostitute on Sunset Blvd when performing on stage. Its all very sad really when the rich and famous, unable to cope with the march of time and nature, resort to the kind of tactics that keep us mortals amused.

    I thought Becks could at least have had a damn SHAVE – and Posh’s hat looked like it was beaming the ceremony up to a SATELLITE!

    Sad to say I wasn’t watching Posh, Becks, Guy Richie or Sam Cam. My ENTIRE attention was (and boy am I glad the wife didn’t notice!) focussed on Philippa Middleton’s ARSE!

    Wow, what a spectacle!

      It’s reassuring to know I’m not the ONLY person who noticed that!!
