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.
