THEY'RE ON EBAY ALREADY: Glastonbury tickets have turned up on Ebay before - apparently - the festival has sold out, as the break down in the sales process has generated a massive army of people wanting to get tickets at any cost, which they can be sure of having. Equally quickly, Ebay Vigilanties have swung into action placing false bids of over a million quid in some well-meaning but hopeless attempt to "punish the touts." Before the market got distorted, there were a couple of tickets where the price had been pushed up to GNP920, which would suggest that Eavis and the Mean Fiddler have managed to create a system which instead of killing off touts altogether has made a few touts able to make enormous profits. Good work, chaps.
