John Leslie Prescott is a Welsh Labour Party politician, former Deputy Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, First Secretary of State and current Member of Parliament for the constituency of Hull East. He was elected Deputy Leader of the Labour Party after coming second in the Labour leadership election in 1994, and was appointed Deputy Prime Minister after Labour's victory in the 1997 General Election.

A former ship's steward and trade union activist, he was presented as the political link to the working class in a "New" Labour party led by modernising middle class professionals. Prescott had 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 former Prime Minister Tony Blair.
