Trust John Prescott to pour petrol on the fire - Miliband.

You have to laugh when John Prescott decides to share his wisdom with us. I can hear Mandelson's (Lord Mandelson of Foy in the county of Herefordshire and Hartlepool in the county of Durham, first secretary of state, secretary of state for business, innovation and skills and Lord President of the Council) hand slapping his forehead in despair all the way from Westminster to here on the south coast.

We've had hints of more trouble for Gordon Brown this morning in the papers. Miliband seems to be saying that he almost didn't support Brown when Purnell quit last week, and Mandelson is warning that the PM faces further rebel attacks. This is without doubt bad news for Brown, but it is not unexpected and it would have died down in a couple of days.

Then in steps John Prescott with his size twelves. He's calling for unity after Miliband's article, but in doing so he is making matters far worse (shocker). What were just hints in the papers this morning are now, thanks to John, full blown plots involving senior Labour party figures - nice one John. He writes (I'm not joking):
Can you believe it?

We've had the most disastrous results affected by the recession, allowances scandals and ministerial resignations, including Cabinet members walking out the day before the election and as soon as the polls closed. All for maximum publicity.

Then came the PLP debate where Charles Clarke's demand for GB to go were overwhelmingly rejected. Instead we all backed calls for unity and getting on with Government.

So imagine my surprise when I was walking through Portcullis House in the House of Commons on Thursday and stumbled upon a meeting held by Charles Clarke, John Reid, Alan Milburn and a few others, huddled together in intense discussion.

I went over and offered to be the secretary for their little club. With nervous laughter, my offer was turned down.

I later saw David Miliband and Milburn in a similar intense discussion. My suspicions were now heightened.

These may not be connected but now I read today that Charles Clarke is once again calling for another challenge against Gordon at the next party conference.
Well done John, that will calm things down - not.

Aha! ha! ha! ha! ha! Oi Presclot, I think we should have a referendum on it! What say you?
Regards to the mistress. How is the old boiler? On second thoughts, forget the referendum you lost the last one REMEMBER? Us English gave you a right t'wacking.
Can it be that John Prescott is a stooge? Naw! He's just annoyed that they've blanked him.
