    Yes, what we need here is a flenser, who will remove all the fat to be rendered for fuel! Or, we can rent him to the Japanese to harpoon.

    We could write a song... "How do solve a problem like John Prescott?" a la Sound of Music.

    (Original post by Big Fat Mel)
    Prescott is actually one of the most vocal parts of the grssroots Labour Party. He was largely responsible for engineering labour popularity rises amongst workers and has played an extensive role in housing and development issues. People just think he's fat and funny, this might be true but he's also a real political heavyweight and a legend in his own, Hullish, way.
    I agree that people usually take the easy (and irrelevant) option when attackig Prescott. However, I think his record in office is chequered.
    Transport under him has been a disaster-the Hatfield rail crash happened on his watch. Also the number of affordable homes still seems to be low. The number of empty homes that could be rennovated is also a disgrace. A few are squatted but most just lie empty while some families have to live in hostels.
Black Friday: Yay or Nay?
