The Bloated Cost of John Prescott's 'Vanity Politics'
No one really knows what John Prescott does anymore. He may be called the Deputy Prime Minister, but it's difficult to see what he's actually for. However, despite that, figures out today reveal that he's costing you, the British taxpayer close on £2 million a year. It funds the worst kind of 'vanity politics'. Why do I call it 'vanity politics'? Well, if you pay for a book to be published yourself it's called vanity publishing. Creating your own government department merely to cling on to the last remnants of an abused patronage is its political equivalent. The tyragedy is, that Prescott should have been remaindered months ago.
