HE HAS A RUMSFELD PLAN: Michael Eavis skips to keep up with New technology - his big plan to thwart ramping up of prices on Ebay is to not send out the tickets until two weeks before Glastonbury. Right, that'll do it, then. Except... all the tickets are already sold, aren't they? So presumably while nobody actually has a ticket, they must have some sort of evidence of having purchased a ticket. So, erm, maybe people will sell that instead. What Eavis is doing is not making it tricky for the touts, but making it easier for people who don't have tickets to sell to pretend that they do, because it'll take weeks for people to realise they've been ripped off and there are no tickets.
