Quote of the Day

I do think he's right for the job.

I spent the day [Sunday] in Downing Street at a meeting that John Prescott chaired looking at what we were doing in response to this earthquake in Yogyakarta.

Could you tell us how many of the bloody noses you intend to inflict? [to Prescott about his punch in the face incident]

View quotes by Andrew Mackay

John Prescott loses his department but keeps the trappings of office - including the car, the salary, and the two grace and favour homes.
View quotes by George Osborne

I'm sure the fact that John Prescott has ordered the building of 991 new homes will be a great comfort to Britain's 100,000 homeless families, let alone the 500,000 living in overcrowded housing.
View quotes by Sarah Teather

The fact that John Prescott is being paid large sums of money to do little or nothing adds to the general malaise surrounding this government and the feeling that ministers are incapable of tackling serious issues.
View quotes by Vince Cable

John Prescott has made the government look greedy and ridiculous. Labour is seen as the corrupt party. The government has been fulfilling the old rule that oppositions do not win elections, governments lose them.
View quotes by Lord Rees-Mogg

We have arrived at the point where the public are right in thinking that John Prescott no longer serves a purpose in governing the country, only a purpose in trying to hold together the fragile peace in the Labour Party
View quotes by Andrew Lansley

He's given a lifetime of service to the party. Without his contribution - among others - we wouldn't have had three terms of government.

I know he has been damaged by events in his personal life - those are, in my view, private matters and should remain so.

He should be judged by his contribution. [on John 'Two Jags' Prescott]
View quotes by Des Browne

Will you confirm that, despite the initiative on departmental efficiency savings, you have managed to spend 645 changing the sign outside your office from the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister to the deputy prime minister's office. [to John Prescott]
View quotes by William Hague

On Thursday [when the game of croquet took place] the deputy prime minister was not standing in for the prime minister.

He stands in for him only when he goes on holiday. He went on holiday on Saturday.

This was an away-day for the deputy prime minister's staff, who've had a change of responsibilities [on John Prescott's scandalous playing habits... on the croquet lawn]
