Prescott, Reid and COBRA.

Apparently the increasingly absurd Prescott is "incandescent with rage" at reports that he is out of the loop on yesterday's events, and the the BBC is reporting Reid's attempts to soothe Prescott's bruised ego. So far, so not particularly interesting.

This, however, is the kicker: "Mr Prescott did not go to either of the initial meetings of the government's emergencies committee...Mr Reid has chaired three sessions of the Cobra committee since late on Wednesday night and will head another meeting later on Friday. Mr Prescott missed the first two meetings but attended the third".

What, pray, could have been so important Prescott that he would not clear his agenda? I'm sure we'd all love to see his diary for the week.

Either cherchez la femme or he has been kept out by not being informed of when the meetings were to take place. I think the latter. I think the Cabinet have ganged up against him.

I would hope they've deliberately excluded him - can anyone imagine that even the Speak your Weight Machine that is Des Browne would think that Prescott might have something insightful to say on the issue?
