Prezza Smacks Down David Miliband

“We’ve gone through that period. The Miliband period is now gone”

No Jags had declared that David Miliband should “shut up”…

No Jags: Speeding Prezza Banned From Driving

John Prescott has been banned from driving for six months after being caught doing 60 in a 50 MPH zone in Lincolnshire. He already had 9 points…

The former Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions told the Hull Daily Mail:

“I committed an offence, I’m not arguing. I’ve been involved in bringing speeding legislation in and I have to face the consequences but that’s life and you can’t have any excuse. At the end of the day, that’s it, you’re suspended.”

He was in a Jag…

Kinnock Calls For Unity By Attacking Blairites

From this morning’s Times:

“The problem is never really the assaults from opponents. Certainly, it’s not a problem by comparison with sniping from behind. That’s a distraction.” He said the Blairites attacking Mr Miliband wanted to go back to the “day before yesterday”

Ignoring the 16 loony left MPs who wanted Labour to turn into Syriza on Monday, Prezza has intervened in the growing Labour row with his customary tact and delicate handling of internal party matters:

Mr Milburn criticised his party’s plans for the NHS and accused Ed Miliband of sticking to his “comfort zone”.

Mr Milburn also joined forces with another former Blairite minister, John Hutton, to attack Ed Miliband and Ed Balls for failing to defend New Labour’s economic policies.

Their comments sparked a furious backlash, with ex Deputy PM Lord Prescott accusing them of being “Tory collaborators.”

It’s pretty telling that the only people leaping to Ed’s defence today are Kinnock and Prescott.

Ed’s former PPS Chuka Umunna is out there – but he’s done a personal profile in Red magazine – which is a little wide of his Shadow BIS brief!

Where are the Shadow Cabinet?

Where are Ed’s praetorian guard?

Where are the 2010 intake, keen to support the leadership?

Labour in Scotland: Don’t Believe the Hype

Despite the fact that he had the line written on his hand, John Prescott still managed to go violently off message on his campaign stop. Prezza promised a joint English and Scottish football team, and laid into the evil Tories, echoing SNP attack lines. At least he didn’t punch anyone. It was negative and messy, and pretty much summed up the whole campaign.

Despite today’s unprecedented flap and the cancellation of PMQs, the blame game has already begun. ConservativeHome point out that Better Together – which was meant to be Tory cash and Labour troops/faces – has failed to deliver:

“The problem came when Labour over-promised and under-delivered on Better Together. Citing their own grassroots strength, their many senior Scottish figures and their supposedly deep understanding of Scottish culture and politics, they asked for Tory funding in return for providing the strategy and the boots on the ground. The money, and the agreement to let Labour lead the charge, was forthcoming. But they haven’t really delivered their part of the bargain. YouGov polling suggests Better Together haven’t been as effective as the Yes campaign in contacting voters – be it through leaflets, letters, door-knocking, posters, stalls, email or social media. Where are the army of activists Labour promised?”

It’s Labour voters that are shifting over to Yes.

While things will be incredibly rocky for Cameron should Scotland choose freedom, Ed is hardly in a position to crow. No wonder he said resignations were beside the point…

Prescott’s Son in Running to Become Labour MP

John Prescott’s son David is running to become the Labour candidate in Greenwich and Woolwich, replacing the sitting Labour MP Nick Raynsford. With a 10,000 majority it’s a highly sought after selection. With Will Straw chosen to fight a seat last weekend and Euan Blair sniffing around for one, Prescott is weary of the charge of nepotism, telling Guido he’s ‘too old’ to be a Red Prince. He’s had a career outside of politics at least, and points out in his announcement that he’s not he’s not some Oxbridge PPE drone:

“I like to feel as a 43 year-old dad working with businesses, I have real life experience. I left school at 18 and worked my way up through the ranks as a journalist from a local press agency to an Assistant Editor at the BBC. I now work in public relations helping companies grow and become more successful. … I built my own career.”

Who could he be talking about? Guido was more worried about plans to re-nationalise the railways. A Prescott and transport. Again?

Local Government’s £217,130 on Foreign Travel

Of all the departments that make up Her Majesty’s government, Guido would have thought the one that doesn’t need to blow huge sums of taxpayer cash on foreign junkets would be the Department for Communities and Local Government. Somehow the department have spent £217,130 on visits abroad since 2010, no signs of a trip to a Sydney casino though. When Guido put it to them, DCLG sources pointed to the fact that the department has made savings of over half a billion pounds over the current spending review period and most of the travel was for mandatory trips to the EU. A useful figure to keep handy…

Prezza Attacks Tony and Gordon for Thatcher Funeral

Powerful stuff from John Prescott in his Sunday Mirror column where he frothed about Maggie one last time. Prezza went off on one about the Tories hijacking her funeral:

Quote of the Day

William Hague on Tony Blair…

“To the political law that you can’t fool all of the people all of the time he added Blair’s law – that you can make a very serious attempt at it.”
