Selfish, selfish Prescott

He's going to stand down when Blair does, thus ruining much of the fun. Not a good 24 hours.

It means he is still around for us to ridicule for a few months yet, by Blair's reckoning.

That was my previous post!

The publication of the letter sent to the Met by George Bathurst and Norman Baker and not leading to "further enquiries" would heap more embarassment, I think.

praguetory - What letter?

Anyway, of course Prescott's going when Emily goes. His ridiculous non-job is in Emily's gift. What choice does the fat slob have?

Verity - I thought he might want to hold on to the job. After all, if you had a sinecure worth 6 figures (and a couple of nice residences) which required neither talent nor effort to hold down, would you be in any rush to resign?

Vikki - it just seems a more interesting way of saying 'places that link to me which I visit'. You are very welcome here, by the way.

"Peter Hitchens" had posted a wildly amusing but immensly libellous comment about Pauline over at Guido's. Mr. Fawkes saw fit to delete it, alas.

But in a way, I shall miss Prezza. 'Tiny' John has occupied high elected office and enriched himself at our expense for nigh on 10 years and achieved quite literally ....nothing. Prezza is, as he has always been a man of colossal inability, an embittered class warrior, an ignoramus, a serial fornicator and a disgrace to every Cabinet position he ever held. And the Labour Party Conference applauds him as a conquering hero....

Peter is waging a one man campaign to add to the gaiety of the nation, and I think he's doing admirably.

Back on Prescott, someone noted at Guido's (?) that a clip of Prescott's punching of the Mullet Man of Rhyl got wild applause. Says a lot about the 'Tribunes of the People', doesn't it? Still, it will be fearfully dull without him. Imagine getting stuck in a lift with the Cabinet...

Verity - letter is referred to in a recent Guido post. My internet time is up. Bye.

Yes, Peter is immensely entertaining.

Croydonian, but even if Prescott wanted to stay on after Emily leaves, he would get the axe from whomever succeeded Emily. Can you imagine Alan Johnson sullying himself with that as his deputy? I think not. Or Gordon Brown in the highly unlikely event of him getting the premiership?

It most assuredly is not his choice to go, which should afford us all some pleasure.
