antique: a peerless bargain.

IS THERE no end to Tony Blair's angst over the "seat in the Lords for a loan scandal"? Spotted on Ebay this week was a seven-day listing to bid for a peerage and at the time of writing, the price was up to pounds 1,000,400 after three bids (the pounds 1.4m buy-it-now option was lost after the first bid was placed in line with Ebay practice).

According to the blurb "These people are a barrel of fun, we even quoted my mate Archer as saying 'go for it, it'd be a crime not to'. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll want your money back." But adds: "Note: no actual peerage is for sale, we do not endorse the sale of peerages. We await the arrival of Gordon Brown, Don't eat yellow snow ..."

Chances are the eBay probity police will have pulled the listing, but try searching on "peerage".
