Like Ken’s re-election campaign, it was launched with such high hopes – hopes which quickly encountered cruel reality. Less than a month after publication, Ken’s autobiography, You Can’t Sell That, er sorry You Can’t Say That, was reduced on Amazon from £25 to the bargain price of… £1.99. That’s 92 per cent off!
Ken may be struggling to impress the punters with his alleged Tube fare reductions. But he has made at least one sale with this price cut, for the Kindle edition, which is almost as generous as a Lee Jasper grant in the good old days. I’ve bought one. I already had a free copy from the paper to review, but a Kindle has an electronic wordsearch. Look out for the fruits of my searching very soon…
PS It was Amazon’s “deal of the day,” one day last week, so I thought I’d better not tell you about it until it was over. Wouldn’t want to lead anyone into temptation, would we?
PPS Boris Johnson’s new book is on Kindle for £9.99.
