I almost found myself agreeing with John Prescott

BBC NEWS UK UK Politics Prescott denies calling Bush crap

Its been a long time since I found myself agreeing with John Prescott and find myself dissapointed that John did not have the backbone to stand by his comments on the American President. Personally I felt that our Deputy Prime Ministers alleged comments summed up what a number of British people have been thinking for a long time, far better than anything our actual Prime Minister has had to say on the subject.

All true enough. And it hasn't gone down badly with the spineless ones on the labour benches either. Am I suffering from the general deluge of conspiracy theories, or is it all a bit convenient for Prescott to 'accidentally' criticise Bush like this? After all, Prescott's sole function is to give people who believe The Working Class to be an objective entity a reason to continue voting Labour. A bit of raw populism isn't going to hurt his case at all.
