Just heard it in the radio - John Prescott will announce that he will retire at the same time as Blair. Now I have been pretty sanguine about Blair's departure, not least because his replacement seems far worse, and I can't take another hectoring Jock south of their border. But the chance of speeding the departure of Blair's sinister yet comical in-house cretin is one which means I for one will be agitating for a speedy and calamitous night of the long knives for Blair every time Gallup or MORI get in touch for another one of those opinion polls. And no... I can't be arrsed to find a link.
