Most recent annotations on things by Prescott

  • d gadfly: John Prescott seems very fond of injunctions and of any means of gagging people, the press and even the MPs. Perhaps his role in the FV Gaul formal inquiry made him over-sensitive about people... (30 June 2014)

  • LYNDA DAY: Prescott has the nerve to comment on a few people and not the others that enjoyed the experience. This is jolly coming from a man who's party spent 13 years destroying the country and have just... (26 June 2012)

  • d gadfly: Get off, Prescott! Criminal act, you say? How about the even more criminal act of perverting the course of justice (in the Gaul and Derbyshire public inquiries), defrauding the public and... (2 March 2011)

  • Mark Bestford: He may have the support of the Labour MPs, but he certainly doesn't have the support of the public. What do you call a government where the leader takes over without any form of election? Oh... (17 May 2007)

  • Daniel Frisby: I agree wholeheartedly with Bruce. At a time when we should be using technology to help us curb our emissions this technology has been brushed off. But, oh they'll say, efficiency of... (8 March 2007)

  • Bruce Heagerty: Is it necessary or is it an unnecessary luxury that we feel we can't do without because we've had it for so long, like smoking in pubs, perhaps? Surely we should extricate ourselves from this... (8 March 2007)

  • Martin : "I am just checking to see that the press are in the Gallery." Why? Doesn't John Prescott answer questions if members of the press aren't present? (14 December 2006)

  • Mark Bestford: Quite simply the increase in use of public transport has been effected by increasing the cost of motoring to the point where it becomes impossible to drive. This also has the effect of changing... (6 December 2006)

  • Dave Lowry: In a scenario where you ban all cars, forcing people to use public transport, you could claim you've increased people using buses and trains. However, I wouldn't say you've done it the right way,... (6 December 2006)

  • Graeme Lyall: It does not appear that Mr Prescott is responding to David Clelland's very fair question. Carers are subject to a very strange earnings rule which cuts off their Carers Allowance all at once.... (1 December 2006)

  • Mark Bestford: Agreed. The market as it currently stands is unsustainable. What choice is there for someone when to buy a house they must first move over 50 miles away from where they work? That is the reality... (3 November 2006)

  • Owen Pearman: I agree with Mark. Thousands of young people were forced to move away from the areas they grew up in because the housing market had been so inflated by people from the city buying and converting... (3 November 2006)

  • Mark Bestford: What planet is this person living on? When is it right that a person earning 30,000 a year cannot afford to buy a house in the town they live in? Housing is far too expensive, simple as that. For... (2 November 2006)

  • Mark Bestford: How much of the homeless figure is as a direct result of the over inflated house prices that we now have? Since Labour came to power I have twice been near the point of having my house... (2 November 2006)

  • john franklyn: In Telford and Wrekin, we had at one point, the council giving more money to a Company it is going to set up than it was to homelessness. The Councils private enterprise received £1.3 million... (2 November 2006)

  • Mark Bestford: How can they claim a successful record? Public debt currently is nearly 500 billion pounds. And rather than improving, it is set to get bigger in coming years. From 1997 to 2002 the Labour... (2 November 2006)

  • J H Hall: This response is typical of Government ministers; they studiously avoid answering the question just to blow their own trumpets. Such behaviour brings politicans into disrepute. If they are... (2 November 2006)
