    Re: people getting their comeuppance

    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.

    Re: Chris Martin. Do tell

    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?

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

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

    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 ******! >:

    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.

    What if I sold my two tickets on eBay for more than the price I paid, with the intention of handing over half my profits as a further donation.

    What would St Bob's stance be on that?

    they should be sued by the people who were selling the tickets, for their loss.
    I believe that they can be.

    That would be interesting. As well as teaching them a lesson, they could counter-sue Saint Bob.

    Bidders who tried to prevent the sale of Live 8 tickets on auction website eBay have had their accounts suspended.......

    sounds fair to me, they obviously aren't interested in trading so they should be suspended. In fact they should be sued by the people who were selling the tickets, for their loss.

    The people who are selling these tickets on websites are miserable wretches who are capitalising on people's misery
    I don't see how, unless I've missed a vital part of the story. Will the intended recipients of the money (directly or indirectly) receive less because someone decides to sell their ticket? If not, then so what?
