So, Julia’s Shoe To Go On eBay?

So Julia Gillard’s now famous lost shoe is apparently to be put on eBay to raise money for the Aboriginal Tent Embassy?

They should think twice.

eBay – as one would presume – has a quite clear policy on the listing of stolen goods on their auction site:

“eBay strictly forbids the sale of stolen property. eBay strongly supports law enforcement efforts to recover stolen property that is listed on its Web site, and urges the prosecution of those who knowingly attempt to sell such items on eBay.”

The more respectful thing would be to return the shoe – since yesterday’s debacle is ultimately more about respect than anything else.
