Have another job Mr Prescott...

#1
From today's on-line Telegraph;

A new Government department, employing 18 staff at a cost of more than £1 million a year, has been established for John Prescott, even though he was stripped of his departmental responsibilities in May and plans to quit next year.

Mr Prescott, now regarded as Deputy Prime Minister in name only, will have more staff working directly for him than the chief executives of some leading companies.

He still draws a full Cabinet salary of £133,997 and is based in the offices at No 26 Whitehall which he occupied when he held wide-ranging Cabinet responsibilities for local government, planning, the regions and housing.

Eighteen staff ? Eighteen ? For a useless, fat, jobless tw@ like Prescott ? How the f*** can anyone justify that ?
Need an expert on the FOI act here - as these are public posts, I understand that they should have been advertised, even if only as transfer. I'm sure that being the political animal that he is, that our John, wouldn't have done anything wrong here - so, 'nuff said.

Eighteen staff...

Four to follow him around and make sure he doesn't punch/seduce anyone;

four to carry his wallet;

the remaining ten to carry the pies.

Seriously though, can anyone come up with a half-way plausible explanation as to what he is for?

Holy God Lucks...have a thought for my blood pressure will you?

I swear you only posted this to give me apoplexy.....

As i've said, I met a guy on Sir Galahad who was old enough to have served with Prescott when he was a seaborne waiter...his verdict?

What a waste of oxygen and space this man is. Just think the 2M that he is costs could add another 65 quid to the deployment bonus for the 30K or so service folks deploying somewhere more dangerous than his Hull constituency making it up to 2300 quid! :x

Seriously though, what are the 18 for? What is it that they'll do they he couldn't do before? Is this all for show to keep up with the (Whitehall) Jones? Waste.

He's been a liability for years.

Our former ambassador in Washington really laid into Prescott in his book DC Confidential. Described him as a 'political pygmy' among the massai warriors of Washington politics.

He apparently insists on meeting the US Vice President every time he visits Washington as he regards himself as the VP of Britain. After the meetings, the US VP's staff call the embassy for a summary of what happened as the Americans really struggle to understand what he is saying. His top comment was stating that RAF Harriers can drop bombs from an altitude of 15 feet!

Why has Blair kept him for all this time? The leadership thing wasn't an issue until recently. Is he just a token to placate Labour's hard left or is there more to it?
