    I don't do twitter etc., but I'll start the bidding at £25 (if it hasn't yet started).

    Any links to the actual "bids/offers"??

    I'd offer to donate mine, but it's seen too much action. And I agree with churchmouse.

    In this case it wasn't paypal's decision in isolation; that was a manipulation by visa/matercard. They don't permit people to make payments using their cards towards wikileaks, through paypal.

    But that horrid looking wallet matches those vile looking shoes, you will look odd now without the pair.

    Not too sure how this was supposed to work - thought there was actual bidding?? It was up for only £19.99 (fixed price) when I found out how to navigate.
    Anyway, I'm now the proud owner of Martin's wallet. lol
    A little tweaking and adding a donation I managed to get this for my £25 offer (hubby's card). :j Gift aid should give this a small boost.

    I hope there is a signed picture in there. ;)
    One day he might just make it and become a celeb. :D Could be a great investment then. :rotfl:

    A small donation to a worthy cause (some of my savings made from this great site given back).

    I'm intrigued as well to see what his "money matras are", probably says "Don't waste money buying cheap wallets". :rotfl:

    The "mantras" is what gives this prominence and I'm going to frame this (sad I know). I've got a small piece donated to Oxfam from the "Great Man" himself and the charity has benefited - winners all round.

    Many thanks Martin, just a bit sorry it wasn't actually auctioned to perhaps raise a bit more.
    Again, this great site has saved and made me many, many pounds over the year due to yourself and it's fab members, so just a small (very small) token of my appreciation.

    To be honest, I was very surprised to get it for only £25.................and if I had been more frugal it was available for only £19.99.
    A great cause and a little something for myself - which I'll treasure.

    Again, many thanks to you Martin - looking forward to the next one.

    Take care.

    I highly doubt there is a connection between the two events. For a start, this would have taken a while to organise, and it's been going on for a while already (and I got an email about it in January).

    And secondly, no-one cares about paypal stopping wikileaks donations anymore. Infact, I haven't heard anyone mention wikileaks full stop in weeks.
