Deputy Prime Minister, the obese and Jag loving John Prescott was accompanied by Alister Darling and yesterday lashed out at a middle-aged questioner in Edinburgh whilst the voter was going about his Saturday shopping trip at Tesco (a major Labour Party supporter and donor).
The local thought it relevant to ask if Deputy Prime Ministerhad seen reports in that morningâ€™s papers that Lord Birt, the former BBC Director-General and close adviser to Tony Blair, was touting plans for a new nuclear power station.
“First of all, letâ€™s dismiss John bloody Birt,” spat Prescott. “He might walk in and out of No 10, he might whisper in ears…. there are thousands of advisers like that. He obviously thinks he is a bit more important. That is what advisers do – but they donâ€™t make decisions.”
It appears that Labour’s efforts to keep the fat, ignorant bastard from putting his foot in it is failing yet again.
To add insult to Edinburgh and show his total ignorance of anything Edinburgh or indeed Scotland, two jags put his foot in it earlier when he said “You have a Liberal Democrat council here. I know about Liberal Democrats, we have them in Hull. The first thing they do is put up the council tax and cut services.” It was inspiring stuff – even if Edinburgh City Council is controlled by Labour. He was of course right about [his party] putting up the council tax and cutting services.
Prescott was recently the butt of an internet joke called Googlebombing. He was GoogleBombed for the word “fuckwit”.
