Prescott: The Biography
John Prescott has punched his way into the national consciousness like no previous Deputy Prime Minister. Bridging Old and New Labour he is able to unite the party like no other Labour politician making him an invaluable part of Tony Blair's team. In this acclaimed biography Colin Brown charts the rise to power of one of Westminster's most interesting characters from his middle-class childhood in Wales, through his ten years at sea with the Cunard line, to his rise through the trade union ranks, and national fame and controversy as a hardhitting politician.
