The author of a book that advocates beating children under a year old with paddles said he was "delighted" to discover a Tory MP was calling for it to be banned on Amazon's website.
Michael Pearl told BBC Radio 5 Live that if the book is removed from the retailer's website, he will "advertise it as 'the book banned in the UK'".
Mr Pearl told the radio station: "I was delighted to hear that Parliament might ban my book, if they do, I will immediately advertise it as 'the book banned in the UK' and...we will end up selling another 100,000 books directly to the UK."
"The British defeated the Nazi's with planes and tanks and now they stoop to defeating ideas with censorship," he added.
