RELAX, NZ NOT FOR SALE

(New Zealand Press Association Via Thomson Dialog NewsEdge)Sydney, May 12 NZPA - Online auction house eBay has decided New Zealand can't be sold.

An Australian man tried to auction New Zealand off on the site this week, with a snide one cent the first bid.

The man, believed to be based in Queensland, advertised his product by saying it had the ``dodgiest America's Cup win ever...and very ordinary weather''.

God's Own was only worth $A3000 when eBay Australia intervened after 22 bids and removed the item from offer.

``Clearly New Zealand is not for sale,'' eBay Australia spokesman Daniel Feiler told NZPA.

``It is mostly household items we have for sale, but there are the occasional quirky items put up.

``We have a look at them and if they are OK we leave them, but if it is something that can't be sold, we take them off.''
