Rt Hon Lord John Prescott

John Prescott was Britain’s longest serving Deputy Prime Minister and a key player in the Blair Government. His most significant achievement was to lead negotiations with 120 nations at Kyoto, resulting in the first treaty on climate change. He still works with the Chinese on their plans to build a thousand new ‘sustainable’ cities.  Since resigning from Cabinet John has become active in the Council of Europe, particularly on environmental issues. The next subject to receive the Prescott treatment: the North-South divide.
