John Prescott's employee is paid hush money - Telegraph

John Prescott's employee is paid hush money - Telegraph

As John Prescott tours the country drumming up support for his fellow bruiser Gordon Brown, there is one woman with good reason to avoid his "battle bus".

Mandrake can disclose that one of the former deputy prime minister's employees has won a "substantial" sum in compensation after she complained about her treatment.

Janice Morphet reached an out-of-court settlement last month that will mean any allegations about the culture in the upper echelons of the Government will not be heard in public.

Mandrake understands that taxpayers will foot the bill of more than £50,000 for the deal, under which Mrs Morphet agreed never to speak about her time in Prescott's employ. The deal was agreed just days before she was due to appear at the London Central Employment tribunal in Holborn.

Nice Blagg Mr Prescott. Get the taxpayer to bail you out of your abuse of staff.

This is on top of your other blag.

Taxpayers had to fork out £3,320 for John Prescott's grace-and-favour home to undergo a "deep clean" after he moved out, it emerged today.
