Prescott Demands (and gets) BBC Right of Reply
The Deputy Prime Minister is not a happy bunny. He rang up the BBC this morning ranting and raving about the coverage of his, er, coverage in today's Sunday papers and demanded the right of reply. He is apparently accused of waving through planning permission on a controversial project in the City of London and in Croydon which were the brainchild of two Labour donors/lendees. So he rang the editor of the Politics Show and demanded to go on live. And you know what? The BBC naturally said 'yes'. I guess you can't really blame them, as we all know what can happen when Prezza gets a little narked.
