    This is still the ‘real’ political story of the past week.

    Why did Sky News send the great Adam Boulton off to be muzzled/cut out by Tony Blair’s press minders at pre-staged ‘Press Conferences’ in the Middle East?

    He was a completely wasted asset there.

    The ‘real’ political story is still as below:

    Quote from today’s Evening Standard –

    Blunkett is guilty says Prescott
    By Joe Murphy, Political Editor, Evening Standard
    22 December 2004

    John Prescott breaks ranks today and declares that David Blunkett is “guilty” in the nannygate affair.

    The Deputy Prime Minister’s comments will be seen as a tough signal by one of the Cabinet’s most powerful figures that Mr Blunkett should not make a frontline comeback. “He has been found guilty of the offence,” said Mr Prescott. “He has paid the price for an offence that was against the ministerial rules.”

    Mr Prescott’s views are in stark contrast to Downing Street which said Tony Blair still felt Mr Blunkett had left “with his integrity intact”, implying he could return after the election.

    Just another indication of the integritity level of Blair if he feels Blunkett’s is intact.

    Aparently The Sun says Blunkett is tipped to take over from Prescott when he goes to the House of Lords as Deputy PM.
