What is the point of a Deputy Prime Minister?

Without getting into the politics of it I do wonder what the point of a Deputy Prime Minister is. Past DPMs have generally had real jobs to go along side the nice title, Nick Clegg (at the moment) doesn’t have one. This does not auger well for him as it does bring back memories of John Prescott, stripped of his other offices in 2001 he was allowed to stay as DPM but had nothing to do, hence he spent his time shagging the staff and playing croquet.

Something tells me Senor Clegg has slightly higher hopes for his time in power, but damned if I can see what he’s going to do.
