There is only one Labour politician who has benefitted from the Lord Levy arrest - and that's the Deputy Prime Minister John Prescott. He was shunted off to Turkey on another jolly so he could be out of sight, out of mind, but the Sunday newspapers haven't played ball and he features again in most of them.
But it's to the Mail on Sunday that I feel duty bound to turn.Their full story of John Prescott's repeated visits to the house of Health Minister Rosie Winterton is laid bare HERE. The fact that the Mail on Sunday has printed such an article and that they have gone to the trouble of interviewing neighbours of Miss Winterton raises a number of questions. The neighbours have revealed that Prescott has paid "dozens" of visits to her house in the last couple of years and that her neighbour's cat has befriended one of his security officers. Nice to know that these visits are being paid for by you and me, isn't it? Each time, he's driven there in his government Jag and followed by a BMW. And, it seems, the Mail on Sunday.
On the same page, former Prescott press officer Tricia McDaid reveals Prescott slept with her sister (although the sister denies it), and she had to wear trouser suits to avoid his groping in the office. She's now issued a law suit against him.
