eBay pulls missing 'Julia Gillard Shoe' amid outrageous bids

Canberra, Fri, 27 Jan 2012 ANI

Canberra, Jan 27(ANI): Online auction website eBay had put up Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard's missing shoe for sale on the site but later retracted the decision.


The shoe listed as "Julia Gillard Shoe" with a starting price of 148 dollars had attracted bids exceeding 2000 dollars minutes after it was put up.


"Up for auction is the Julia Gillard Missing shoe... A right foot - size 8 - Midas - Glorify," the Sydney Morning Herald quoted seller Yanickborg's statement on the website, as saying.


"You are bidding on a used shoe. Please bear in mind also this is a single shoe, not a pair, so it would be difficult to walk in, unless you're the PM," he added.


The seller had used news and photographs from the January 26 protest to prove that it was the same shoe, which Gillard had lost while trying to escape the protest.


It is not clear whether it was actually Gillard's missing shoe and the outrageous bids also suggested the sale was a hoax.


An eBay spokesperson said the sale had been taken down because sellers can only list items they own, or items the owner has given permission to sell.


"We know the owner is the prime minister. The seller did not state anywhere that they had permission, so we've removed it," he said. (ANI)
