A week after the queen died, some chump got on Ebay and tried to auction off her stick. Well, not actually her stick, dude was a fraud. Winning bid, in the end, was £540 – though he quickly closed the auction when he got wind that the police were investigating.

How you know the police are looking into something online, I have no idea. How the police got involved, I haven’t a clue.

The story here, as far as I’m concerned, is the lengths the police and the Crown Prosecution Service went to convict him. That it went to trial at all is a bit of a surprise, but they bothered to round up “extensive computer evidence” – which couldn’t have been cheap. For a very petty crime that resulted in, basically, a year’s probation. It just seems an insane use of police and the courts.

Believe me, there are much worse things that get much less attention. I wonder if there are special police that do online searches for the royal family all day?

Well at least he was smart enough to not commit a SERIOUS crime, such as insulting Muslims!

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
