to love John Prescott's article in the Mirror?

Didn't bother reading all of it because the bits I glanced out were the obvious hypocritical bollocks as I expected, but just a couple of examples...
Under Thatcher, inequality increased
Inequality was at an all time high by the time Prescott's government were voted out of power.
Manufacturing collapsed under her strategy of deindustrialisation
More manufacturing was lost under new Labour than ever was under the previous conservative government.
The man really is a turd, let's not forget he was maxing out his food expenses then cried bulimia when pulled up on it, and cast scorn on titles and the house or lords while in government, then jumped at the chance of a peerage when he quit as MP.

He comes across as really rather unworldly, and a bit simplistic. He and his son (with the Hull-based property empire) have certainly made much out of little talent or intelligence. His first comment is so sexist, it makes me uncomfortable seeing it printed in a national newspaper. Substitute the word "woman" with "white" or "black"...
Not someone I'd consider a role model of any sort.

Utterly vile waste of space. Ignorant chancer who sullied the offices of state he occupied. Should have remained a ship steward or whatever he was,but Blair had to have someone who looked traditional working class in his government. Thick and graceless and such an embarrassment to Britain when he was in office.
