Poor old John, Nanny's faithful Smooth Talking Bar Steward, he finds himself in a rather emabrassing situation.
He was sacked, in all but name yesterday, from his much treasured position of Deputy Prime Minister.
Yet Nanny has allowed him to keep his salary, title and all the free accommodation and other perks that went with the job.
Some naughty people have suggested that this generosity from Nanny is because Prescott has something on Nanny...but that's not how politics in Britain works surely?
Dear old John is a very sensitive soul, and is worried as to how this might look to the voting public. Therefore he would be very grateful indeed to receive suggestions as to how he might "earn" and justify Nanny's largesse.
