Hurrah for Kelvin MacKenzie the Southern Party ponce unafraid to be recognised as a tabloid hero

KELVIN MacKenzie is a one-man circus. The Sun should bring back its former editor. He know how to rile and get a noticed. Kelvin saus he want to create “The Southern Party”. It will stand up for the “overtaxed and over-burdened” Southerners. He advocates Home Rule for England’s South:

As a standalone entity, the people of Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Sussex, Hampshire, Kent, Oxfordshire, Surrey and London are 18th in the global GDP league, just ahead of Indonesia and just behind Turkey. If you took this region out of the UK economy, it would be called Ethiopia.

Adding:

“Why don’t they live within their means, or move down here and see what it’s like to be taxed until they weep?”

We’ve invented Kelvin MacKenzie. He keeps going because we want him to. This is what we want, an editor we can identify and shoot at. The Mail’s Paul Dacre would be a great TV judge and panelist, but he appears to be unwilling to go on the magic box and radio. All the country’s newspaper editors are virtually invisible. It was only at Lord Leveson’s behest that most of us saw their faces. MacKenzie is their face of tabloids because no-one else  in the country wants to peep out from above the parapet. He and Piers Morgan should form a double act. It’d be a smash hit.
