I can exclusively reveal that two days after John Prescott's overnight stay with Philip Anschutz John Prescott flew to Los Angeles where he was a guest at a champagne reception hosted by the Chief Executive of AEG Tim Leiwke. AEG is the company which runs the Dome and is owned owned by Anschutz. This man is on record in the Independent saying that "a casino licence is fundamental to the future of the Dome". So if that is so, how could Prescott and Anschutz discuss the regeneration of the Greenwich Peninsula without talking about a casino licence?
I trust my friends in Her Majesty's press will be following this up during the course of the evening. Any further info before my Newsnight interview would be gratefully received.
