Prezza Present

A self-deprecating email arrives from John Prescott, asking for donations towards his Go Fourth campaign:

  • Go Fourth has to rely on small donations. It helped us fund our Prescott Express tour, which was fantastic.

    Tony Blair has donated £6,000 to Go Fourth and Alastair Campbell, myself, Glenys Kinnock and Dick Caborn have all made significant donations too.
  • So here's the deal.

    If you donate £15 to Go Fourth, I'll send you a signed copy of my book, Prezza Pulling No Punches.
  • Now let's face it - you won't make a fortune sticking it on Ebay.
  • You could even use it as a raffle prize or at worst, prop open a door with it.
Quite what Tony Blair intends to do with 400 copies is open to debate.

Interestingly, the book - My Story, Pulling No Punches topped a list of books left in hotel rooms in a spurious survey by a hotel chain seeking free publicity (beating The Karma Sutra on the way)
