Hull East

In Hull, Prescott on January 8, 2008 at 7:52 pm

It seems that the front-runner to replace John Prescott as Hull East MP is no other than Christopher Leslie – lately the MP for Shipley.

He apparently has the unions behind him. Until recently it was rumoured Prescott Jnr was going to inherit his father’s crown.

So, democracy is still alive and well in Labour. Nepotism or the Unions. Take your pick.

Prescott for PM?

In Prescott on October 8, 2007 at 2:39 pm

One of the squaddies I am teaching today told me he had visited Hull Fair. I told him I had seen John Prescott when I was there. I mentioned that he no longer has police protection. He was surprised he had lost his protection as he was the prime minister. He then thought again and said, ‘Oh no. Gordon Brown’s the Prime Minister isn’t he.’ Bless him. He got there in the end.

Farewell Two Jags

In Hull, labour, Prescott on May 12, 2007 at 6:27 pm

A pollster stops you in the street and asks, “Who, in the past ten years, has done more for this country: The Queen or John Prescott?” I think I know your reply. If anyone can think of a single achievement of good old ‘two jags’ then please tell me. And the shame if it all is that he costs more than Her Majesty.

Click here and you can watch him outside the East Hull Labour HQ on Holderness Road. Notice how he never mentions anything he has done. Well if you can’t think of anything John, I can’t be bothered to do the research.

Reminiscing

In Blair, Prescott on May 8, 2007 at 10:11 am

As we all know, Tony Blair and John Prescott will announce their resignations this week. I therefore cannot resist having another look at ‘Two Jags’ (or should it be ‘Two Jabs’) on the election trail in 2001. Just watch his reflexes!
