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?
