I was born in east Hull, educated in Hull both in school and at the University, bought my home in east Hull and, for the most part of this, John Prescott was our Member of Parliament representing east Hull. As well as the people in my area being proud of having John Prescott living on our patch, we were extremely proud when he became Deputy Prime Minister of this country. Not only is he a great MP and ambassador for this area, but he is also a robust character famous for his no nonsense attitude and his fight for what is best for the people.
Tonight, at Hull University Union, you have the very first opportunity to see the (now) two candidates standing to be your Labour candidate for the Humberside Police and Crime Commissioner. If you're a Labour Party member, or a member of Hull University Labour Club, head down to the Hull University Student's Union at 7.30 and get to see what John has to say about the role - ask any question you like, and if you can't make it - Tweet John at @johnprescott or use the hashtag !
