Beckham Reveals EU Vote
Have you decided yet on whether you want the UK to ‘Leave’ or ‘Remain’? We’ve only got until Thursday until the big EU referendum. Now David Beckham has nailed his colours to the mast by saying he wants to live in a “vibrant and connected world” and will be voting to stay in.
In a post on Instagram reported by the Mirror, dubbed his highest profile intervention in politics, he said: "I played my best years at my boyhood club, Manchester United. I grew up with a core group of young British players that included Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, Nicky Butt and the Neville Brothers. Added to that was an experienced group of older British players such as Gary Pallister, Steve Bruce and Paul Ince."
But he added the team was improved by having a Danish goalkeeper, Peter Schmeichel in goal, as well as Irishman Roy Keane and Frenchman Eric Cantona, and he'd been privileged enough to play for teams across Europe, and with teammates from all over the continent. "We live in a vibrant and connected world where together as a people we are strong," he said before stating he wanted his children and grandchildren to be part of a connected world, where problems can be solved together.
