Nicknamed "Two Jags" for his love of luxury cars, Mr Prescott is known as a no-nonsense politician who has made as many enemies as he has friends.
Comment: Now he shall be known as "Two Shags" Prescott. You decide where your valuable vote should go this local election 4 May 2006 (to wish Tony happy birthday on the 5 May) and in the next General Election. It is said that ‘experience’ is the best teacher – only the school fees are too heavy. Since you now realise the ‘fruits’ of your mistake last general election 05/05/05; do try no to have such a short memory!
