Let's all laugh at Prescott:
Meanwhile, in the light of revelations already made , and those that seem likely to reach the MSM, how long can he last? As a doer
, received opinion is that he is utterly useless, and I'm not going to start defending him, but he has served as a shield for Blair, who can claim that there is at least one working classs member of the cabinet and thus give the old class warriors that make up much of the activist caste some belief that the New Jerusalem might come along one of these days. Which it won't. However, as and when he does go, this will leave TB more exposed , and mean one more disgruntled ex minister on the backbenches.
I'm torn between my desire to see Blair's long overdue and richly merited Gotterdammerung and the fear of a nuclear winter under Lord Protector Gordon, and I suspect that that which is bad for Blair may well be good for Brown unless the latter gets enmeshed in this. Along with doubtless many others I have heard all sorts of interesting tales about Gordon's predilictions, which I will keep to myself. However, the gullible (?), paranoid (?) etc will find all sorts of strange things being said on alt.politics.british.
