Jan 09 - Board Game creates Ebay controversy.   An Ebay seller has had his listing for the vintage board game ‘Escape from Colditz’ removed from Ebay in what appears to be a case of political correctness gone mad. The auction site removed the listing on the basis that the photo of the board game showed the box lid which features a swastika, which could incite racial hatred. The disappointed seller was hoping to make some money for the game, which can sell for up to £80, after seeing it on a ‘nostalgia toys’ feature on TV.
