Ticket Touts should not be made legal as the purchaser of tickets from touts can only be sure the tickets are genuine when they use them to gain entry to the event.

What should be done, is where any tickets are given free to any organisation or individual a contract should be made that, if say a week before the event they are not going to use the tickets then they should be given back to the organisation from whom they were obtained. If they do not and are subsequently not used then, they should be charged the full price for the tickets they were given.

Re the discussion on the Ferdinand comments re Ashley Cole 1 viewer said she could be prejudiced but not raciest.

From the definitions stated below, it can be seen how easy some prejudice could so easily become raciest.

Is it not easier for everyone to be careful as to what they say and do, especial persons in the public eye. Whether the likes of Ferdinand, Cole and others, not only in football, but all forms of entertainment and public office, wish to be role models, they are in the eyes of some of their supporters and fans. It is therefore their responsibility to conduct themselves in manner which is both acceptable to the social values and legal rulings of the country in which they reside.

 

Parenting, no defining rules can or should be given, except that it should be every parents responsibility to ensure that the actions of their children are in line with the social and legal rules of this country.

How this in ensured or enforce should be up to the parents.
