British intelligence has taken a bit of a battering over recent years - the large rock used to collect information in the middle of Moscow, for example, and the tired old rubbish copied off the internet and passed off as first-hand knowledge of Saddam's weapons of mass destruction that fooled nobody. Well, apart from Tony, of course. But now, there is hope: David Beckham and Robbie Williams are going to spy school.

Okay, it's not the real thing - it's one of those stupid things rich clueless men do because you don't get a special spy badge if you just read a book - but it's a start. We hope that the pair do so well they get picked up by MI5. We're sure Robbie would love the chance to serve his country by going on a long, dangerous mission somewhere.

On the other hand, neither are exactly going to be first choice for someone who would keep their true identity secret, are they? You can picture Robbie, having been given an elaborate backstory and a false name to trick his way into the Chad Embassy, unable to resist dropping hints about who he really is - whistling Angels; blubbing on about how difficult it is being him, and so on. Robbie simply couldn't live a lie, claiming to be somebody other than he really is. He just doesn't have it in him.

Still, lets hope he and David have fun playing at James Bond. Maybe they'll go to Chuck-E-Cheese after.

As a cover story he could pretend he was gay. Which he isn't, so nobody would guess.

Wasn't there a rumour of a gay James Bond film in the works featuring Rupert Everett? And didn't Robbie mention that he wanted to one day be Bond?

Hollywood could be calling for Mr W.

I read that as battying, and thought "oh no, not with our Robbie, nothing even remotely like that for our RW"
