Prescott says tonight in an Independent interview that ‘Bush is crap’. It’s clear that someone’s done a pretty effective job on Prescott in recent weeks. As if his womanising wasn’t known about before in the last 9 years, or his tendency to pay visits to people who might benefit financially from his decisions. The only question was who was behind the ‘demotion’ of Prescott?
Prescott’s latest outburst gives a bit of a clue.
The Americans get a bit sensitive when Ministers get too closely aligned with the EU view on life. Robin Cook, Jack Straw and now maybe Prescott too. It’s as good a theory as any other.
