Prescott and the Titanic

It seems that John Prescott has just played the part of the iceberg, holing Labour below the waterline with his latest comments comparing Labour to the Titanic. The difference with the events of 1912 was that the Titanic was a brand new vessel which impressed people and in which people had great confidence. Labour on the other hand doesn't really count as "new" any more and anyway, is possibly already holed below the waterline.

Quite what Prescott thought he could achieve by comparing Brown to the captain of the Titanic will remain a mystery but bizarrely, the comments were meant to be supportive of the Prime Ministerm. It was, he claimed, the iceberg that sunk the Titanic, not the captain. That does of course overlook the problem that it was the captain who ordered full steam ahead into the area of ocean full of iceberg and danger.
