    We've had a very late offer of an exceptional item for auction. This is the original of a cartoon that appeared in the Guardian, on 3 July 2006, underneath a story about the world cup being given precedence over the 90th anniversary of the Somme.


    I repeat again that this is the original cartoon and will come direct from the cartoonist, Martin Rowson.

    This auction will run for a week until 1100hrs on 18 Nov as I believe that it will attract a lot of interest. As always, bids can be on here, via Private Message or by email to

    All money will go direct to the 2006 Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal.
