Belgium withdrawn

0 comments

Belgium isn't up for auction anymore, after eBay withdrew the lot – which only attracted a bid of E10-milion. 

The country was listed as a second-hand item and was offered in three parts – Flanders, Brussels and Wallonia.
Potential bidders were warned that, although there was loads of opportunity, the country came with a national debt of E300-billion.
Belgium is in the middle of a political crisis which may have prompted the spoof sale by an ex-journalist.
This is the second time Belgium has been listed on the auction site.
