Tony Blair backs John Prescott for Humberside police and crime commissioner role
Former Prime Minister Tony Blair has backed his former deputy John Prescott in his bid to become Humberside’s first directly elected police and crime commissioner.
The former Hull East MP is currently battling for the Labour Party nomination against ex-senior police officer Keith Hunter.
Mr Blair told the Mail: “John was a terrific deputy to me and someone who understood the need to be tough on crime and the causes of crime.
“That is why I am backing him to be a great police and crime commissioner.”
