The BBC website points out that there is absolutely no connection between John Prescott officially running the country while Tone slums it at Cliff's gaff, and the Government decision to issue a leaflet advising people how to cope with disaster.
On a more serious note, Prezza could spend sometime on the day job. George Monbiot makes a compelling argument for a sensible transport policy. The figure of 3,500 people killed on the road is about the number who perished in the World Trade Centre on September 11th, although they attract less media attention, and re-occur year-on-year, ... but there's not much likelihood of a government in this country doing anything about it.
