MacKenzie’s own position could be better

By Axegrinder axeblog

They say political books increase in sales during the run-up to a general election, so I’ll be keeping a close eye on Kelvin MacKenzie’s tome, The John Prescott Kama Sutra.

Regular readers will know that former Sun editor MacKenzie advises readers on Prescott-type sexual positions (“The Bawdroom ‒ in which Prescott shags his lover on the boardroom table once used by the Admiralty as the portraits of distinguished Navy figures look on.

Admiralty Arch-Back ‒ where Prescott stands to attention and his girlfriend salutes him as they have sex standing up at his flat in Admiralty Arch…”)

What of MacKenzie’s own position on the Amazon book rankings? Currently hovering at 213,204 (but ready to zoom up when the election date is fixed).
