Marcus Lush puts questions to John Key about reports that he referred to English football legend David Beckham as "thick as bat shit". The Prime Minister says that the report has come out of a private conversation in a Dunedin school's staffroom. "That's that person's characterisation of what they think they overheard me saying," he told Marcus. "In the end that's what that person thinks they heard." The story made headlines here over the weekend after British tabloid newspaper The Sun ran the report as a story on Saturday.
