Overlooked in the rumpus about Alan Johnson, on Question Time last night, attacking Maggie Hodge over her “racialising housing” stance, was an unanswered question. Towards the end of the show the discussion turned towards how Prescott had disgraced the office of the DPM. Most of the panel and the audience thought he had diminished the office of DPM. Johnson loyally defended Prezza. Someone asked rhetorically of the good looking, eyes sparkling, not unattractive to women, candidate for Prezza’s job, “if he won, would he shag his secretary?” Johnson grimaced without replying. It was a rhetorical question, wasn’t it?
