Just stumbled across this curio listed on ebay as 3 Plastic Politicians with an apostrophe in the wrong place for good measure. The three in question are Tony Blair, Gordon Brown +1. The all-eyelashes Blair one looks like the modern computer animated Noddy from Channel 5, Gordon is grinning as well he might be and the third joker appears to be William Hague. The item’s poster says that the name escapes him/her- how quickly they forget. Even if some wags used to have a go at the old PM on the grounds of inauthenticity it seems a bit unfair to call the fomer iron chancellor and new premier a “plastic politician” particularly now that no-spin is the new spin.

Anyway 7 hours to go and no bids yet – get in there if you fancy a chance to “win” this trio.
