John Prescott still costs the taxpayer almost £2 million a year, despite being stripped of all departmental responsibilities.

The Deputy Prime Minister's Office has 18 staff and its own offices in Whitehall.

The Tories say that they would vote against any future application to fund Mr Prescott's office.This got me thinking - what have we ever got from Prescott for our money?

His price per lb is still good compared with the other parasites at Westminster.

He made a deal with Blair. Nice sinecure in exchange for keeping the unions in line.

Wasn't it Prescott who said he would resign if people were not making fewer journeys by car in x years when he launched his transport plan?

But as far as incompetent Muppets go, why single him out - he is in very good company in that respect.
