John Leslie Prescott (born 31 May 1938) is a Welsh politician, who has been the Labour Member of Parliament for Hull East since 1970, from 1997 to 2007, he was the Deputy Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, also serving as First Secretary of State from 2001. He was elected Deputy Leader of the Labour Party after coming second in the 1994 leadership election, and was duly appointed Deputy Prime Minister after Labour's victory in the 1997 election, with an expanded brief as Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions. A former ship's steward and trade union activist, by the 1980s he was presented as the political link to the working class in a Labour Party increasingly led by modernising, more middle class professionals. In his youth, Prescott managed to overcome the handicap of failing his grammar school entrance Eleven Plus examination, to graduate from Ruskin College in Oxford. Prescott also developed a reputation as a key conciliator in the often tense relationship between the two other senior figures in government, then-Chancellor Gordon Brown and then-Prime Minister Tony Blair.
