Prezza Conspiracy Theory Debunked

Back in July John Prescott claimed he was the victim of an elaborate plot by the Tories to smear him over dodgy government credit card purchases. Central to Prezza’s conspiracy theory was a redacted letter from Gus O’Donnell, with Hull’s next top copper demanding an investigation into the apparent cover-up. The story was run by Political Scrapbook, and even the Observer weighed in. Now there is egg-on-face all round as the whole theory was debunked this morning, with an answer to Prezza’s Parliamentary Question in the Lords revealing the letter in question was censored simply to redact factual errors:

“A factual error in the Cabinet Office reply of 18 November 2011, incorrectly suggesting that departmental civil servants had been disciplined for the use of the Government Procurement Card under the previous Administration, was removed from the version of 21 November. In fact, the fraud stemmed from seven transactions on a cloned credit card. A second paragraph was also deleted from the version of 18 November in error. The Cabinet Secretary has written to the noble Lord to explain the background.”

Prezza can take off his tin foil hat…

    My first priority in office will be to clear up all those old cases which have never been satisfactorily resolved. There’s on here in front of me where this fat old git smacked a poor young egg-thrower … now that’s clearly disproportionate use of force and I will get this thug arrested.

    What does the fact that some one of his lack of depth, not to mention conversely his over-abundant breadth, can become deputy prime minister reveal about the state of our country?

    Prescott isn’t interested in the truth. He saw an opportunity to make allegations and took it.

    The allegation is still at large and I have no doubt there are legions of bedwetters convinced that the T*ries conspired against Prescott just as he claims. Just as they’re convinced the Maximum Imbecile ‘saved’ the UK economy rather than being the guy who actually destroyed it.

Alan Milburn says Labour’s scaremongering campaign for an unreformed NHS will not win election…

“It would be a fatal mistake, in my view, for Labour to go into this election looking as though it is the party that would better resource the National Health Service but not necessarily put its foot to the floor when it comes to reforming. Look, reforms are not easy, but the Labour Party is not a conservative party. It should be about moving things forward not preserving them in aspic. You have got a pale imitation actually of the 1992 general election campaign, and maybe it will have the same outcome. I don’t know.”
