I can tell you I'm pretty middle-class.
Prescott quotes
It is a fact that homelessness has continued to rise. It doubled under the previous Administration, but that does not help us. The Government intend to reduce and probably eliminate the homeless by 2008. [Interruption.] I am sorry, but the House knows that I have problems with English. I did not go to public school, so there is a limit to what I am able to say. Opposition Members can be such twits. We believe that we can eliminate the problem of homelessness by providing more resources, which is precisely what we are doing.
Prescott
When I see that man on the telly - 'Are you thinking what I'm thinking?' No! I'm definitely not! I find most of it quite offensive!




Prescott John quotes
We now have a satisfactory solution not only to coalition forces, but also to the Iraqi authorities themselves.

I will have failed in this if in five years there are not many more people using public transport and far fewer journeys by car. It is a tall order but I want you to hold me to it.
John Prescott quotes
The Green Belt is a Labour achievement - and we mean to build on it.

This was released I think in February and so it is a great deal of fuss being made, it hasn't in fact been given public release, it was released in February ...
Prescott John quotes
I notice from the papers and on television today that the Tories have now brought in a new person to get people to vote Tory, and I could not help noticing that the person is named, as I saw on the website, "Mr. Tosser". I do not know which person on the Front Bench this man is modelled on, but let me tell the right hon. Gentleman that I always thought that his party was full of them, and that is why they have lost three elections.

Because of the security reasons for one thing and, second, my wife doesn't like to have her hair blown about. Have you got another silly question?
