Here’s an interesting stunt: David Cameron’s mountain bike was stolen recently and has now ‘turned up’ on eBay. Current bid (at 09:55 on July 25) is £1,020. Blurb reads:
Well this bike is not *exactly* new but it is *nearly* new because it has only been used for a couple of photo-opportunities.
It is BIG and BLUE and despite looking quite well-balenced [sic] it leans oddly to the right.
It would suit a real commuter right down to the ground.
I want to sell it because It ‘does not feel right’
I picked it up outside of Tesco. It comes complete with a lock (locked). Hardly a scratch on it to be honest.
Buyer should collect, directions to my South London lock-up can be found here.
Looks like a smart publicity stunt by an online gamer (who also claims to run The Omerta Shop). Wonder what eBay have to say about it. And I suppose now Gordon Brown will have to arrange for his bible to be stolen. Where will it all end?
