Testicle Of The Week - John Prescott

I am aware of this developing story regarding a smear campaign apparently orchestrated from No.10. But I made my TOTW pick earlier in the week, and I'm sticking by it. First we had Prescott goading Cameron on the subject of the NHS, which I blogged about here. And then we had the, hardly surprising, news that he is Labour's laziest MP. The Sun wrote:

"Two Jags missed more than half of votes, failed to speak in the Commons, belonged to no committees and did not table one written question."

His spokesman countered with:

"John decided that when he stood down from the Cabinet he would never speak against the Government. That’s why he doesn’t speak in the House — he is loyal."

Which, when you think about it, doesn't make any sense at all. What the spokesman seems to be saying is that Prescott is such a fucking moron that he couldn't speak in the Commons without inadvertently slagging off the government.

Actually, considering this is the man who has brought disgrace to every corner of his political life, made things worse in every department he ever had control over, and has proven himself to be one of the most unpleasant political operators of his generation, the spokesman might not be so loopy after all.
