Hogmanay hogwash

No primary category set

Edinburgh’s Hogmanay celebrations have become the latest event to complain about their tickets being sold on eBay. Council leisure chief Donald Anderson urged party-goers to buy their tickets through local channels, which have not sold out, rather than through eBay, where, claim the Council, tickets are up to three times as expensive. We say that if people are prepared to pay three times face value, the Council have underpriced their tickets.

A quick glance through eBay’s listings, however, reveals a number of tickets at rather less than their £32.50 face value. We wonder if Edinburgh Council will be sensible enough to take all this on board and sell their own tickets on eBay next year?
