Should Kelvin MacKenzie stick garlic where the sun doesn't shine?
Kelvin MacKenzie confesesses in his Sun column today that he grows garlic and suffers from piles.

So MacKenzie asks readers this morning: "I am beginning to wonder if I should dig up garlic and place them in a different compost area. What do you think?"
