For some reason it was actually on a trip to a school in Auckland when John Key insulted poor David. "Handsome, a really nice guy - but thick as bat shit" - is how John Key described him. In fairness that is accurate but let's look at Beckham.
Now John Key
Yeah, he definitely doesn't give a fuck. There can't be much to do for the PM of New Zealand. I actually met the mayor of Invercargill last year and ended up getting drunk on free wine and singing "you look wonderful tonight" with him at a Rugby World Cup art exhibition. That's New Zealand politics folks.
When asked if he really did say that, he said "That is someone that thinks they have overheard a conversation I have had, I am not going to engage in that because otherwise I am engaging in every conversation that someone thinks I have.' Which is a really long-winded politician's way of saying, "yes I did say that."
