I intend to call for an inquest into the death of David Beckham. I know he's not dead but he will die eventually. If we wait until he does snuff it, then we'll be stuck with another decade of tabloid and lawyer-driven lunacy. My own theory, for what it is worth, is that the soft-spoken soccer superstar was the victim of a conspiracy involving Alec Ferguson, Jose Mourinho and that weirdly camp BBC weatherman. The piano that fell on him was provided by Elton John.
