Prescott Does It Again

Text settings

It was vintage John Prescott on the Today programme today. Utterly incoherent, but the man just never, ever gives up.

The way he dismissed the recent snipers was just so vicious. Only a party at war with itself could produce quite this level of high-class bitchiness. David Blunkett, it turns out, had refused to join Prescott's Go 4th tour because he wanted to go to a football match. And as for Charles Clarke, well he was never a campaigner anyway, says his old Cabinet colleague.
