The internet is a wonderful thing. You can do all manner of things on it. You can share photos, organise parties, find a school for your kids, inhabit an avatar in a fictional virtual world, meet the love of your life on a dating site, the list is endless.
One internet sensation which has stood the test of time, and the dot com crash, is online shopping and auction site eBay. Yet Sneak has rarely seen it as more than a mere distraction from work, or the potential source of a new piece of garden furniture.
Until this weekend, that is, when Sneak found Liberal Democrat leader and potential kingmaker Nick Clegg for sale on the site.
"You are bidding for the affections of this man, a Spanish speaking manufacturer and creator of kings. Yes, if you need a king swiftly fabricated, then this is your man," reads the description.
"May be interested in part exchange for electoral reform and break-up of financial institutions, WHY - cash either way. No 'buy-it-now' price but make him an offer and he'll do you a deal!"
With five days left and the clock ticking for David Cameron and Gordon Brown there are currently 46 bids for the man who holds the balance of power after the election ended in a hung parliament.
However, the bad news for messrs Cameron and Brown is that the current bid is at £999,999. What price the next government of the United Kingdom and Northern Ireleand?
