Running for cover

I will not quit, says Prescott, despite more friendly fire

A headline link to the Times who report that labour supporters are abandoning John Prescott in droves. As deputy to Blair he's going to be hard to get rid of, but it should be noted he is also the deputy leader of the labour party itself. Taking that position away would trigger an election process within the party - clearly the last thing Blair wants with his own credentials torn to shreds.

"Croquet can be as cut-throat as politics, say aficionados, as players aim to slot their balls through hoops while smashing away opponents' balls."

Just thought you'd like to know that.

Tonight's Eveneing Standard in London also report that Prescott broke his own strict departmental rules by poking his secretary on the premises. A bit more fuel for the fire as combustion point approaches.

Some interesting UK overview at Blogtrack and a report on the Iraq War - On Drugs!
