Is Prezza for real?

I read captions to my wife from the story in the Daily Mail today. We couldn't help but laugh at some of his excuses. Dislike the man I do but there's an endearing entertainment quality to him that makes me smile. I still say he's a useless fat cnut before I receive some incoming.

'Why would he make this up - generation of pity??'

A little matter of his memoirs being serialised in the Sunday Times next month (although the News of the Screws might be more appropriate) and releasing snippets like this might encourage joe public to put their hands in their pockets and stump up for it.

Also, a few weeks ago, Prescotts' expense details were revealed for 2004-2005, including £4000 for food. Maybe he's trying to justify that amount of wedge by claiming 'well, whenever I ate anything, I brought it back up'.

Interestingly, this report appeared in a number of papers (although it didn't deserve the coverage that it got - particularly from the BBC) and very few of those posting had any sympathy for him at all.

Although I usually take the Sunday Times, I am seriously considering switching to another quality Sunday for the duration of this serialisation - such is the contempt that I feel for him and most of his colleagues.

Unbelievable..

He was a piss poor Politician / Deputy PM and judging by the look of the fat cunt he was an even more incompetant bulimic...got the eating part spot on just forgot to throw up..

Don't get the idea that all people who suffer from eating disorders (and bulimia especially) are painfully thin stick insects, they aren't and many look as normal in weight as anyone else.

On the face of it I don't think he's made it up. I can't see any reason why he would, given that there was never going to be a great deal of sympathy for him, with the obvious pie jokes etc.

Whenever any senior politician's memoirs are published there's usually one headline grabbing bit, " I had an affair with John Major" being probably the most memorable of recent times.

To a point, but generally when you are sick you only throw up a small portion of what you've eaten/drank if any period of time has past. If you feel ill at the end of a night out you generally don't throw up all ten pints.

Precisely - so why has he come up with this story- is it to give his fantastic (yawn) life story some sense of humanity or is he just a twunt?
He is serialising his 'memoirs' in the Sunday Times. You need something interesting to write before someone is willing to pay you to write it.

No doubt, there will be a book soon, and all the "he so brave to be going public with this" soundbites from 'friends' (eg see today's The Politic's Show) etc will create buzz and help him flog his book.

Whether or not he is bulimic really is neither here nor there. He can claim he is, who is to say he isn't.

What is fact is he is an obese, uncouth, parasitic layabout who ate too many pies.

Arent bulimics supposed to throw up what they eat therefore staying skinny. He must have forgot the second part typical prescott doing a half arsed job
Not necessarily, tho some/lots may. That's more normally associated with anorexia along with limiting calorie intake, over exercising etc etc. Many (but not all) of the funding requests I see for bulimia treatment are for people with 'normal' or slightly high BMI figures.

Bulimia is more about maintaining a weight than being skinny.

Edited to try and avoid confusing people!

Whichever, I bet that all of this publicity has boosted his book sales.

Odd how all of his shame and embarrassment :oops: are forgotten in the chase for the filthy lucre. How could you ever forget he's a politician eh!

It's worth noting that symptoms of bulimia and anorexia are often very similar and whilst making oneself sick can be a bulimic symptom some people don't, though I'm sure Prezza claimed he had.

He's more likely to be suffering from Binge Eating Disorder. It's a very new diagnosis and in many ways is bulimia without the purging, vomiting, etc.
