My colleague, The Nameless One, does not know what to make of Prescott's admission of bulimia; fortunately, I had no such qualms. I made jokes. And laughed. A lot.
Former deputy prime minister John Prescott has confessed to suffering from the eating disorder bulimia.
He told BBC News 24 that he suffered in misery and in silence for 10 years because of the shame of being a high-profile man with the illness.
Well, first, I am very glad that Mr Prescott has confessed to this problem; I have no doubt that thousands suffering from bulimia will take one look at Prescott and simply stop. After all, if that's what bulimia does to you...
Second, why the fucking hell does he think that I would give a crap—that anyone would give a crap? He is a fat, corrupt, incompetent, adulterous, lazy, good-for-nothing sex pest and "serial groper"; frankly, the idea that the talentless, deluded, malignant little shit suffered in "misery and silence" for ten years is a source of barely concealed glee as far as your humble Devil is concerned.
Third—and I know that I will probably get a load of shit for this—but if you are not mature enough to understand that stuffing your porcine features with vast amounts of food and then throwing it up is a bad, stupid and pathetic thing to do, then you are certainly not mature enough to govern this country. For fuck's sake, this man was Deputy Prime Minister of Great Britain! Mind you, he was already regarded as a vomitous mass before this revelation—although it was, admittedly, us who were throwing up rather than him.
The poor little Greek boy sums the whole situation up rather neatly, I feel.
What difference does it make whether Tony Blair knew that Prescott was bulimic when he was leaving him in charge? He clearly wasn't bothered that his deputy was an incompetent embarrassment, so why would anyone expect him to break sweat over a few chocolate eclairs?
At least when Prescott was eating he wasn't actively fucking stuff up. We should be grateful for tender mercies and move on.
John Prescott is, was and always shall be a total fucking cunt and I have absolutely no sympathy for the attention-hungry turd whatsoever.
