image for Thousands of Diamond Jubilee medals dumped on eBay
What do you mean you sold yours to a scrap metal dealer in Barking??

London - Protesting soldiers, police officers and assorted public officials have flooded an internet auction site with the Queen's Diamond Jubilee medal.

The gong commemorating '60 continuous years' of Queen Elizabeth has been branded an absurd token of a fictitious reign rooted in a very long-running Nazi cover-up.

It's been issued by Secretary of State for 'Culture', Mediocrity and Sport Jeremy *unt in a calculated gamble to woo a credulous public.

To some lucky punters it's worth up to £300 a pop as bedazzled royal ephemera collectors queue to snap up the bold-as-brass totem.

Sellers include fire fighters, bomb disposal experts, Royal Protection Racket officers and a number of writers on the satirical website The Spoof.

Most notable among this ragbag of dissenters are recipients of the nation's top gallantry gongs the Victoria and George Cross, some of whom have likened the Diamond Jubilee Medal to a gratuitous extra dollop of supermarket loyalty points.

"Frankly I'd rather have the dosh than some shiny bit of tat to wear on my lapel," one delighted online auction seller commented.

A genuine Royal Victorian Order medal retails for a bargain £2.50p.

Make queen mudder's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)
