Blair Fails to Defend Prescott at PMQs
It's perhaps just as well that John Prescott is on yet another junket, this time to Turkey to attend the opening of a pipeline (er, why?!) because it means he missed PMQs. For those who didn't see it, Tony Blair was asked by David Cameron if John Prescott would be taking over the country in the summer when Blair goes on his
freebie hols. Blair gave about the weakest endorsement to Prescott you could think of. And in a later question from Andrew Robothan he also failed to lavish any praise on the Deputy Prime Minister at all. What does it all mean? I think we know.
