I see Mr Beckham isn't too popular as he thought he might be by giving his wages to charity... but being very crafty by leaving the wife and kids in London and only signing a 5 month contract not 18 months as was thought.

It means that he isn't classed as resident in France and therefore avoids the higher tax rate on the rest of his £20m a year income from other deals in his worldwide income....
