    It's amazing how many people are all of a sudden (on ebay) ill and can't go. They still want ridiculous amounts of cash though. Like I said ebay is full of dodgy chavs who wouldn't know the truth if it hit them in the face.

      The fact is that if a ticket cost £20, then Live8 were never going to see more than £20 for it. I really can't see what business it is of Sir Bob "there are millions starving in Africa" Geldof just what the purchasers of said ticket then decide to do with their legally bought ticket. I hope he gets sued by Ebay for his crass comments. Pompous ******! >:

          Chris Martin. Nobody has mentioned him yet. Listed in the dark side of my soul with Bono.

              Same as Bono really, but I also remember his recent rant against shareholders of companies.

                Fair enough, but to get back on track the original question, (does anyone remember that) was what people, or types of people, will you look forward to getting their comeuppance, when the world turns, as it always does?

                  I rather like this thread. I could go on forever with liars, the pig-ignorant, and those that are both.

                  Today it is Tony Blair's turn. This morning, this coont said he was desperately keen to encourage sport in schools. The opposite, in fact, to what his government has been doing since 1997.

                    Sir, sir, come quickly! Blatant rip-offs at 12 o'clock sighted.
