crap on the map
Prescott denies anti-Bush remark
John Prescott has denied a report he said the Bush administration had been "crap" on the Middle East road map.
The Independent newspaper claimed the deputy prime minister made the remark during a private meeting on Tuesday with a number of Labour MPs.
It also said he called the US President a "cowboy with his Stetson on".
Mr Prescott issued a statement in which he said: "This is an inaccurate report of a private conversation and it is not my view."
Really, John, is that the best you can do? If it’s a private conversation, I think you could use more brightly colored (I’m sorry, “brightly coloured”) language than “crap” and the so five years ago “cowboy.”
Or maybe that’s what you meant when you said the report of the private conversation was “inaccurate.” Maybe you’re just annoyed that one of your colleagues cleaned you up for the front pages.
Until I hear otherwise, that’s going to be my reading.
