Le Blob Vert

source

I see Lord Prescott is off to the the Paris climate jolly in December. From the BBC we hear -

John Prescott is returning to front-line politics as an unpaid adviser to Ed Miliband with responsibility for climate change.

The former deputy PM will focus on trying to help a future Labour government seek agreement at climate change talks due to take place in Paris in December, Labour sources say.

Mr Miliband said in a tweet that Lord Prescott "knows how to knock heads together".


Surely an odd choice - sending a known buffoon on a mission to save the planet. Maybe he barged his way to the front of a long queue using his well-developed political elbows to snatch the plum before anyone else spotted it.

Or maybe not.

Astonishing. Bring on the clowns.

Stupid oaf, made into some sort of position by the blair bloke, who needed a silly old git to pan off the objectors.

Failed as a crime commissioner too - utterly useless, and so thick it isn't true!

Demetrius - they already have.

Michael - I suppose Ed sees him as thick enough to push the climate scam.

I find it difficult to envisage Prescott in Paris. It would have to become Hull, or he would have to stop being Prescott for the duration.

Sam - it is difficult but as a seasoned trougher he'd probably surprise us.

I am a massive cynic, and my reaction was hmm Millipede is attempting to appeal to and appease old labour with this charade, and a charade is exactly what this stunt is.

Kath - I agree, it's a stunt to gather in a few old Labour voters. Whether it's a good idea to present Prescott as a climate bod I'm not so sure.
