Two Fingers

by | 6th, June 2003

‘WITH the crowd still rolling in the aisles from his last gag – ”The Prime Minister doesn’t tell lies” – John Prescott knew he had the audience where he wanted them.

Prezza just manages to count up to two…

But one coherent sentence in a career does not an act make, and Prezza, a man best known for his ”gaffes and gobbledegook” (Mail), needed a trusty visual gag.

Without breaking stride as he sauntered into No.10, without appearing even to think, the genius of comedy reached behind his back and stuck up two fingers to the watching press.

The Mail has the front-page picture of Two Jags giving it the Two Fingers, using a headline to reply: ”The same to you John, with euros on!”

The inside of the paper is typically full of shock and awe at the burly one’s actions.

There are even a few words from Romford’s Tory MP Andrew Rosindell, who says that standards throughout the land will ”slip down the gutter” following the Deputy PM’s example.

And surely they will. It’s a sorry state when a once brave man of action, the famous and highly respected Two Jabs, is forced to kowtow to the touchy-feely sensibilities of a nanny state gone mad and resort to finger-waving.

Next thing you know, he’ll be calling Tony names – like liar, hypocrite, warmonger, sycophant, toady…

And that can’t be right. Can it?
