"I'm not quitting, says Prescott
John Prescott says he will not quit as deputy prime minister despite pressure over his meetings with the man hoping to turn the Dome into a super-casino.
He told BBC Radio 4's Today programme: "I will get on with doing my job and I'm not leaving it."
Well surprise surprise (as Cilla would say).
He apologised for his affair with a secretary but refused to say whether he had had other affairs.
Er… shall we take that as a yes then?
"There was no truth in much of the stories written about him in newspapers and internet blogs, he said. "I know there is a media storm against me - they don't like me and to be honest, I don't like them," he said."
Look Fatso… get this through your fecking socialist skull will you? With the exception of the Guardian, and probably the Socialist
The fact that you are still in office, still screwing your civil servants, still jetting off to discuss the Dome is selling papers faster than a cure for cancer could be sold at the same price.
The media’s only interest in your resignation is going to be if it harms their readership by supporting you. The public hate you so the media are market-bound to follow suit.
"Mr Prescott says he was not involved in Dome-sale talks with Philip Anschutz. "
Bollocks, just plain bollocks! Philip Anschutz is a billionaire businessman. Guttersnipe is self-employed and can’t even have his parents over without talking shop, do we really think that the subject won’t crop up?
Why else would a billionaire entrepreneur invite Prescott over to stay? Do we even remotely think he phoned up and said: “John, why not bring over a few civil servants and we’ll have a chat about slavery abolition… possibly the odd game of croquet”?
You’re havin’ a larf….
Prescott insists on blaming the media, the bloggers, the mystery conspiracy and the Tories for the mess his career is in and the fact he is a political laughing stock. The fact is Two Shags neither the media, the bloggers or the Tories:
- called Tracey Temple into their office and said “How’s this for a right honourable member”
- went on a free American junket at taxpayer’s expense
- Sat spending their office time playing croquet
That nice Mr. Dale commented:
“"Prescott's friends would be well advised to desist in their efforts to defame various bloggers including myself. Blogs have played a major role in exposing Prescott's activities and I make no apology for that. There are no dirty tricks. No one is pulling our strings. Prescott's own incompetence and sleaziness has ruined his reputation with little help from me. If there are further revelations to emerge, no threat from Prescott or his lackeys will stop the truth coming out."
Wise words I’m sure you will agree. Iain Dale is a well educated, thought provoking writer of the highest standard. John Prescott is a bullying sexual predator who has been the author of his own downfall.
If you really want a blogger conspiracy I’m sure that we bloggers will be happy to oblige. Ladies and Gentlemen, find dirt and publish it.
