Recovering from a bug

A bugging device found at Sinn Fein's Belfast headquarters has turned up for sale on the internet. The apparatus, which is available on auction site E-Bay accompanied by an authenticating letter from Gerry Adams, has attracted bids of nearly a $1,000.

Party chairman Mitchel McLaughlin has said they hope to raise awareness about British secret agents as well as finance from the sale.

As much as I disagree with Sinn Fein, this is a pretty amusing tactic. On the other hand, if MI5 buys it from them then they're in deep shite...

Edit: Broom of Anger got in there early with this story and has a picture of said device.
