Prescott on the way out?

Tomorrow's Daily Mail reports that John Prescott is coming under pressure on the following grounds (some more damning than others):
    • Gambling insiders revealed he was the "driving force" behind the Government's plans for new super casinos;
    • He met Mr Anschutz on seven occasions to discuss regeneration of the Dome
    • Cabinet ministers are worried Mr Prescott is "losing it";
    • Blairite PR guru Matthew Freud played a pivotal role in getting Mr Anschutz access to Government ministers;
    • Mr Prescott visited a giant casino in Australia at the height of the row over the Gambling Bill in 2004 - although the visit was blandly described at the time as a 'regeneration site visit'.
Meanwhile, bloggers - notably Guido Fawkes and Iain Dale - are reopening the questions about his private life.
