What did he discuss with the Gambling Billionaire? Why ’twas Wilberforce. We are discovering a whole new side to Prezza, first his croquet playing skills and now his learned knowledge of British history. We are expected to believe that on his global travels visiting casinos he stopped off at the vast luxury ranch of the billionaire gambling-mogul buyer of the Dome only to discuss their mutual interest in the anti-slavery campaigner William Wilberforce. What are they on?
This is just pathetic schoolboy stuff, not New Labour’s usual spin. Someone must have misheard:
Prezza “How are we going going to get out of this?”
Forlorn Special Adviser “We’ll have to use the force.”
Spin-Doctor “OK I’ll draft the statement”.
If as Prezza now claims “The only discussions concerned the running of a large ranch and William Wilberforce and the abolition of slavery, and the production of a film that Mr Anschutz is making on this issue.”
How is this official government business? Does the Office of the DPM now have responsibility for making movies? Does Prezza’s official
business include acting as a film producer / adviser for American moguls? What a load of contradictory cobblers.
