The world needs more unification, not isolationist policies – that’s the message ex-football star David Beckham is trying to promote as Thursday’s ‘Brexit’ referendum looms over the UK.
Beckham, who is also a UNICEF ambassador, said that Britishers must not act selfishly, but rather, think of their future generations before rushing to oppose staying in the EU, as international exposure can only be good for young people. He said the UK “should be facing the problems of the world together and not alone.”
From his experience as an international sportsman, Beckham said, he learnt the importance ‘of a vibrant and connected world’.
The football superstar has represented his native England 115 times, and has won accolades playing for Manchester United, before moving on to Real Madrid and LA Galaxy.
Remembering his playing stints abroad, Beckham added that he was privileged to play and live in Madrid, Paris and Milan, with teammates from around the world. “Those great cities and passionate fans there welcomed me and my family and gave us the opportunity to enjoy their unique cultures and people,” he said.
Meanwhile, Victoria Beckham who also supports the ‘Stay’ campaign, is mad at ‘Leave’ supporters who have dug up and are sharing anti-Europe comments made by her twenty years ago. David should ‘listen to the missus’, they say.
Well, the missus has changed her mind, and as any married man knows, the missus is always right!
