Duck House Up For Auction

Recommended Posts

So you cannot afford that 2 bed slavebox... then why not bid on this :lol: Looks like its going to beat the reserve price!

"Adam Partridge, auctioneer from TV's Flog It, Bargain Hunt and Cash in the Attic, said he believed the duck house could sell for much higher than its normal value of about £300.

He said: "This is the notorious duck house and could get thousands and thousands.

"I've not auctioned off anything like this before; it's really tricky to say how much it could go for, but it may be a lot."

"An MP who claimed £1,645 on expenses for a floating duck island is to sell it to raise money for charity.

Tory MP Sir Peter Viggers said he felt "humiliated" after his expense claims were published in the Daily Telegraph.

The £30,000 claim for gardening costs included the 5ft Stockholm duck house which acts as an island to protect ducks from being attacked by foxes.

The Gosport MP, who is standing down at the next election, said he had received requests to donate it to charity.

He told the Portsmouth News: "I've replied to the dozen or so people that have enquired that my wife and I are minded, in due course, to sell the thing for charity."

After Sir Peter's expenses claims were made public Conservative leader David Cameron had warned him he faced the removal of the party whip if he did not announce that he would stand down at the next election..."

Be sure to get it quick as it's already risen by 2.3% from last month. Wouldn't want to miss out would we.

Good timing while the markets good... bet he's doing it to STR... hope he gives the profit back.

As long as he allows me access to it and kicks the bloody ducks out, I'd give him £500 for the right to sit on the island with a beer whenever I had the urge. In fact, with a decent 3G connection and a deckchair I could work from there. Might need to move the house a bit, but the location's lovely.
