Damned if he does

  • Comment

Prescott had, however, already got himself in trouble before the bash even kicked off. Saturday's Telegraph carried an article on the extravagant lifestyle the deputy prime minister would be leading in the south of France. This fairly lazy and predictable bit of journalism chronicles the cost of the suite of rooms his people had booked for him and his entourage in the Carlton Hotel in Cannes. This seemingly is a no-win situation for Prezza. If he were to stay at home, he would be castigated by the property industry for ignoring the most important gathering of the year, and if he attends he gets in trouble for being easy with taxpayers' money. What does the Telegraph expect? Surely its journalists don't really want the deputy prime minister to stay in the Nice Airport Travelodge?
