Who would buy an item on ebay from Kazakhstan?

It was a bottle of House of Commons blended whisky signed "Best Wishes, Tony Blair" for $2000.

Dave, don't forget to mail in your dinner and dues cheque :wink:

I didn't realize that Tony Blair could be had for that cheap. (Missing " there, Lawrence!)

It's still there. You just have to paste the link in starting at the &.

Funnily, I have seen this bottle/bottles signed by Tony Blair come up at ebay about 4 times now.

I have a bottle of House of Commons blended whisky signed by Tony Blair. I believe he signs bottles and other souvenirs (e.g. the label of a cuddly bear, creating a Tony Bear) and offers them to Labour MPs for raffle prizes or for fundraising auctions. Some of the Ministers use them as prizes for their Departmental Christmas parties. I suspect they are not that rare and they could be forged easily but they are highly valued by the people who win them and believe in their provenance.

That would be my guess, Nick.
