Re: Olympic Torch

I don't know if that link referred to the same item as mentioned in http://community.plus.net/forum/index.php/topic,104661.msg894054.html#msg894054 because as bidding is closed the item isn't viewable. I'm not even sure if what I saw yesterday (I doubt it) was the one that has just been on BBC Breakfast - a Bristol lady runner has put her's up to raise money for a charity - but the ebay entry didn't mention that and the bidding closed on Saturday evening with the final bid supposedly £150,000 odd - missed the exact figure. Apparently she also received a lot of abuse via ebay, something I hope ebay will investigate as that seems totally unreasonable what ever the reasons for selling or anyone else's views.

Why bother to charge £2.50 delivery charge Undecided
Do you think the seller is any relation to Andrew Boff the Conservative Olympics spokesman and member of the London Assembly.
Edit:- (Item was withdrawn about an hour after I posted)

Re: Olympic Torch

There's another one from North Wales up for sale now, current bid £3,600, it does make it clear it is yet to be used on the relay. I'm not going to post a link, anyone interested can search ebay. I now suspect that these things will come and go for sometime now that selling them on ebay has hit the national news.
@journeys, I'm not sure what the point of the "political" mention is, totally irrelevant as far as I'm concerned, whoever the individuals are.
Edit: I do have one of the "EDF" Olympic badges, I wonder how much I could flog that for on ebay!
