PM endorses Christian MP to be the next James Bond

The next James Bond could be the Christian MP Stephen Crabb, the Prime Minister has suggested.

Entering the discussion about who should be the next 007 David Cameron said the Welsh Secretary would make a fine Mr Bond.

"You've always got to have a second career in politics Stephen, so..." He said.

His comments came after James Bond car maker Aston Martin announced it is opening a new factory in South Wales, creating more than 750 jobs.

Mr Cameron hailed the "fantastic" investment and said "there is a lot to be proud of" in the country, and a Welsh 007 would be another great achievement.

Speaking to a packed Downing Street reception to celebrate St David's Day, Mr Cameron suggested his young, bearded minister bore a resemblance to Hollywood heartthrob Russell Crowe, making him the perfect contender.

He said: "I think Stephen is absolutely right to mention Aston Martin, I think that is a fantastic investment for Wales - 700 jobs.

"We are now going to have the James Bond car built in Wales, all we need now is a Welsh James Bond.

"I always say to the Secretary of State, he looks a bit like Russell Crowe."
