My Lord Two-Jags

My Lord Prescott, the two-fisted ship’s steward from Hull, has followed the path of so many other professional socialists and now sits clothed in ermine in that other place.

It is the pay-off for his years as the working class smokescreen behind which Tony Blair and Gordon Brown fought like ferrets in a sack and sold out the Labour Party.

Throughout his time in Parliament he was a media treasure and who could always be relied upon to quicken the slowest news day.

His love of stately residences enthralled the nation as did his colourful private life filled with interesting relationships.

He is now the senior UK Representative in the Parliamentary Assembly of Europe so that his remarkable command of English and expense accounts will live on.
