Lord Prescott explains to the Yorkshire Post

“The House of Lords is a bit like a job centre, you have to go down there to get paid expenses, and it just gets totally tiring”.

    Troughing and incompetent people like John Prescott make the case for Lords reform more articulately than Nick Clegg.

      Articulate and John Prescott are not words usually found in the same sentence. On this occasion though, they are justified.

      I doubt that Lard Prescott will ever find a job that fits his self esteem profile.
      King of England is taken and so he will be visiting the HoL for his daily payments until the Labour Party put him up for another quango or other non-job where he can lord it over others.
      If he thinks so little of it he should do the country and ALL of us a favour and not go at all.

    Except in the House you will get paid just expenses just for “going down there”, Mr Prescott. My unfortunate experience with the Job Centre is a disinterested and somewhat bullying ‘assistant’ telling me in broken English that my qualifications don’t mean anything and to do a street cleaning apprenticeship (which covered safe ways of handling brooms, different types of street rubbish, importance of time keeping) or else “get lost because I’m not paying you.” [sic]

    I wish I still had the self-confidence left to raise a complaint with someone about her.

    Prescott’s a bloated fool and I dislike him with an intensity that surprises me as I don’t normally feel like that about people, apart from Tony Blair Mandelson And Owen Jones oh and Tom Watson and Harperson and……………..

    Oh, we’re sorry, Your Lardship, did we tear you away from something more important, like preparing to meet the Great Kobayashi in a “throwdown” (to be followed sometime later by a throw-UP)?

Douglas Carswell’s side-kick Dan Hannan MEP pours water on the obvious question:

“I won’t be joining UKIP, though I wish Douglas Carswell all the best. He has been a superb MP, and it’s honourable to stand for re-election.”
