Will the real Tory tosser please stand up?

Dopey  Baldie  Nasty

Prime Minister's Questions today, or Deputy PMQs as it turned out, was vintage stuff, with John Prescott giving us a reminder of what we'll miss when he calls it a day next year.

It was Prescott v Hague - two-Jags v slap-head - a throwback to the late nineties, when all was rosy in the New Labour garden!

The contest came to a head with Mr Prescott's final riposte, when he mocked the Conservatives' "Tory tosser" campaign - aimed at curbing personal debt - and enquired which Tory front-bencher the tosser had been modelled on!

And speaking of tossers, two Jags also had it in for Lib Dem Treasury spokesman Vincent Cable, reminding the House of Dr Cable's record of changing parties once a decade.

Going ...  ... going ...  Gone!

In the 1970 General Election Cable stood for Labour in Glasgow Hillhead while in 1983 he stood for the SDP in York and it wasn't until 1997 that he won Twickenham for the Liberal Democrats.

What's next on Vinnie's Magical Mystery Tour? One of Cameron's Conservatives come 2010 I'll bet!!!
