McDaid: more dirt on Prezza to come

Among the tastiest morsels to emerge so far in the developing saga of John Prescott's extra-curricular activities were former Labour PRO Tricia McDaid's revelations in the Sunday papers about his 'unwanted' advances.

McDaid, now CEO of B2B marketing and PR outfit Quanta Business UK, described Prescott to The Sunday Times as a '...boastful, arrogant, nasty pig'.

So how did the paper find her? She replies: 'The Sunday Times got in touch with me because of the incident (described in that paper). He tried to kiss me in front of about 300 investigative journalists, so I'm not surprised some of them remembered.'

McDaid says she came to her Labour PR role in 1993 with a brief to 'make John Prescott seem more intelligent in the media'.

'I told him: "Impossible is something I can do, but miracles are harder to come by", which he didn't like. But you have to call a spade a spade.'

We can't resist asking, did she get Max Clifford in to negotiate a mega-money deal, like Tracey Temple? 'I don't want money.

This is a moral obligation,' she replies.

And does she expect more of her ex-colleagues to come out of the woodwork?

'Absolutely.' Looks like Prezza's going to be in the firing line for a while.
