"The best business is often done when business is said to be no longer being done."
Whilst I hold no remit to defend 'Two Jags Prescott', it is possible that his recent croquet game, during working hours, was a ploy to achieve some business success.
On the other hand it may have been just a croquet game.
PS. I think the media have decided that Prescott has to go and will relentlessly pillory him at every possible turn.
PPS. There are lies, damned lies and statistics ~ and then there is, even worse, the press.
