Thousands of the medals are being issued on behalf of the Queen to honour the dedication and service of public sector workers as she marks 60 years on the throne.
However, scores of the commendations are already trading hands on eBay for as much as £300 each with some recipients openly snubbing the Queen’s gesture on the auction site.
“I could have a nice, shiny medal or the cash, and, personally, I’d rather have the cash.”
We have the technology … to be real assholes.
