Hot potato! Hot potato! It seems that Mark E Smith can't get rid of his MOJO Maverick Award quick enough. Not only did he give it to John Cooper Clark at the awards ceremony (footage below), it now transpires that Smith has put the gong up for sale on eBay.

All proceeds from the sale will be donated to Manchester Victim Support. Bidding at the time of writing stands at £360, and you can add your ha'porth by bidding yr'sen. Check out the fingerprints smeared over the thing.
