John Prescott

My how I miss John Prescott, well I don't actually miss him; but I do miss the opportunities he gave us all to laugh at his pomposity, pretentiousness and pathetic lack of ability. Now I read on Dizzy Thinks that the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister, that key department of state, cost the taxpayer £12,121,559 on travel in the UK between 2002 and 2006. That's on travel IN the UK, so not including his jaunts to sunny climes to advise the world on climate change or how to design an integrated transport policy.

The money wasted by government is disgusting and as this government nears the end of its hold on power you can expect all such costs to rise as they milk the public teat for every last drop.
