VIDEO: John Prescott sings live for Drop the Health Bill petition
Former deputy prime minister and Hull East MP John Prescott has posted a video of himself singing on stage after a petition he is supporting attracted thousands of signatures.
Lord Prescott promised to sing if the campaign to get the Government to drop its current health bill was supported by 50,000 people.
He tweeted a link to the video, John Prescott Jazz Hands, this morning to mark more than 100,000 signatures, adding: "Get to 200k and I'll take it down!".

And while the Labour veteran, who has announced he will stand for the Humberside Police commissioner post, is unlikely to trouble the charts, his video is already proving a hit on YouTube.
