Some folk come across as really impressive with a demeanour, attitude and articulacy to admire:- the husband of Jo Cox has really conducted himself remarkably well......a fitting husband for the equally impressive late MP.

Am struggling to think of many others, certainly not among politicians or celebs. 

Ideas? Eddie Howe? Greg Rutherford? Justin Rose? Tom Hanks? Kevin Spacey?

You have to have principled, open minded, intelligent without being condescending, show humility whist not being weak, have a sense of humour and think of others before yourself. Not many people are capable of all of those things and even fewer amongst politicians and those in showbusiness where a me first attitude is generally a more prominent characteristic.

Absolutely not Obama. He's just another politician, but one who has (almost), successfully glossed over his weaknesses and faults. 

Although showbusiness people were ruled out of Nicks post, they are sometimes the ones who are in a position to help charities, either directly or indirectly.
Impressive people for me are all the charity workers who help, regardless of what is required.
Can't really think of an individual, but I do like how Prince Harry goes about things.

I think Kevin Spacey is a great actor and has done wonders for the Old Vic but part of his appeal is that he brings a slightly submerged sleaziness to his characters which doesn't quite gel with the persona you characterise - and I think it's bubbling away just under the surface when he's not acting.
He comes across as a very sound guy but somehow he'll always be the guy wanking in the shower in American Beauty or the devious Kaiser Sojay in Suspects.

I hear what you say about Obama, Glos, but his speeches are full of humanity and decency, delivered in dignified tones.....a huge contrast to the nasty rhetoric of the "man" set to replace him.....basically, one is civilised and the other just an excuse for a human being. Obama will eventually be missed when he's gone.

I know you like him Okocha, from earlier comments, which is fair enough, everyone to their own. 
I don't hold him in as high esteem as you, because I feel he's missed great opportunities to improve the lot of many more people, not just Americans. The first black president who had massive support, from all communities.  Admittedly, he's come across as a fair and decent man, but I feel he's also flattered to deceive. I hold nothing against him as a person, I'm just disappointed with his political life.

No comments about Brendan Cox? If I was ever in a similar position, God forbid, I'd hope that I could maintain a response as utterly impressive as his, in front of the media in the most dire of times. You get the feeling that he will say and do all the right things for his children.

Are you for real? I'm no united fan but even i could see what pulling on an England shirt meant to him. If we had a starting eleven half as passionate add he was we would be taken a lot more seriously

Limited talent? Right ok. If you say so.

He was a dead ball specialist. Other than that he was pretty average

Let's just get this straight then.....

David Beckham, late of Man Utd, Real Madrid and England (100+ caps) had "limited talent".....?

In your desperate attempts to "make funny" every time Whittam posts a comment, you really are making yourself look a right cunt.

Friendly advice: Give it a rest before you complete the job.

Job competed if you ask me. 

On the field he was a great captain, motivator and led by example.  All three of those things are a talent alone.  Free kicks, crosses and he got stuck in.

What proof do you have that he is shallow and superficial?

All I've witnessed since he retired is charity work, a strong family life, and keeping himself to himself rather than falling out of clubs at 3am drunk as a skunk.

Whether he was a good footballer or not is totally irrelevant in this thread.

How much have you raised for charity this year WGO?

Yep, Beckham is impressive. He has transformed himself to rise above his limited background and volatile temperament into a respected, articulate role model, able to argue persuasively for the Olympic Games etc. How much influence has Victoria been? He doesn't look out of place mixing with politicians, the media and royalty, but has remained grounded and humble.

From the opposite end of the social scale, Prince Harry is an excellent shout too.
