Another game of croquet your Lardship?

! This post hasn't been updated in over a year. A lot can change in a year including my opinion and the amount of naughty words I use. There's a good chance that there's something in what's written below that someone will find objectionable. That's fine, if I tried to please everybody all of the time then I'd be a Lib Dem (remember them?) and I'm certainly not one of those. The point is, I'm not the kind of person to try and alter history in case I said something in the past that someone can use against me in the future but just remember that the person I was then isn't the person I am now nor the person I'll be in a year's time.

John Prescott’s phoney class war has taken another bizarre twist with the announcement that he has accepted a peerage.

Prezza made a BBC documentary recently all about his class war and in 2005 he even slagged off Tony Bliar’s school “reforms” because they weren’t working class enough.  Yet as Deputy Prime Minister he was on a salary of £134k – more than 9 times the current minimum wage of around £14.5k – and had two grace and favour homes paid for by the taxpayer and a flat paid for by a union as well as his taxpayer-funded constituency home.  And then there were his two armoured, chauffeur-driven Jags that he used to do the shopping and drive his wife up the road so her hair didn’t get blown about.

Like all class warriors that have had a stint lording it over the proles (excuse the pun), Prescott is a millionaire with a hefty ministerial pension which will keep him in the manner to which he has become accustomed and as a member of the House of Lords he’ll be paid £335.50 for every day he hauls his sweaty, pampered arse into the House of Lords.

I can’t decide whether the thought of an unelected millionaire Lord Prescott fighting his phoney class war against other unelected millionaire Lords, all appointed under one of the systems he’s supposedly devoted his life to opposing, could be best described as ironic or hypocritical.  I’m thinking probably both.

    i like Prescott, although i’m fundamentally opposed to a lot of his views, at least he worked in a proper job and he thumped that guy too, which is cool in my book!

    I’ve worked in proper jobs and I’m willing to thump any fucker you like for £335 a day.

    The tragedy is, as this guy is a moron’s moron, he won’t even know the meaning of ‘ironic’ and ‘hypocritical’..

    It’s a bloody disgrace that this arse has got where he has.

    I heard Prescott vs Zac Goldsmith on Radio 4 the other day. I think JP prefers being in opposition. His main argument was that the tories are for the rich few and Labour are for the many. Two words – Tony ‘The Trough’ Blair. Sorry thats 4.
