If you look closely it is a right scammers delight- I think e bay should pull most of the listings- they are selling pcitures of torches - and if you read the ad quickly you would probably think you were bidding on a torch- not the photo. Also someone has a hand held pocket torch that they took on the olympic route and they are selling that-!! It's an olympus torch not olympic torch
Well, as far as I'm concerned, this is just some individual people trying to cash in on the Olympic robbery-fest from which many businesses will profit.
The torch is totally meaningless to me. I thought it entailed people transporting it under their own steam. I've since heard it is being transported by cars, motorcycles and other motorised vehicles too. I was so disgusted when I found this out. The torch is coming through my home town next Saturday. I shall not make the effort to welcome it. I consider it has nil meaning for human endeavour whatsoever.
If people want to sell a metal candle holder, and idiots are prepared to pay the earth for it, more power to them!
