I think I said that. Two Yorkshire alpha males...

Though, to be fair, Jeremy has the advantage in that his idiot is essentially an onscreen character played by a bloke with the same name, whereas Prescott doesn't have that layer of protection in the first half of the segment (he seems to develop it and settle on a character from the "connect with the electorate" line onwards)
Prescott is Welsh...Though stubborn idiot about covers it.
He doesn't sound it then - too long in Hull!
*spits* Can't stand the man. Too long indeed, he was the MP here longer than I've been alive.

Well this would explain it...

The son of a railway signalman and Labour councillor, and grandson of a miner, Prescott was born in Prestatyn (now in Denbighshire), Wales. In 2009, he said: "I’ve always felt very proud of Wales and being Welsh...I was born in Wales, went to school in Wales and my mother was Welsh. I’m Welsh. It’s my place of birth, my country."[2] He left Wales in 1942 at the age of four and was brought up initially in Brinsworth in South Yorkshire, England.
