Labour's Sharon Hodgson MP would like to thank the Channel 4 Dispatches programme for their brilliant expose "The Great Ticket Scandal".
Channel 4 Dispatches Great Ticket Scandal
How you can get involved
Please E-mail or write to your MP, to ask them to support Sharon Hodgson's calls for action on ticket touts. Ask your MP to write to Maria Miller MP (She's the Culture Secretary) on your behalf.
If you don't know who your MP is, you can use this website here to find out who your MP is (using your postcode): WriteToThem.com
E-mails are always better if they're in your own words, but there's also a template letter on my ticket touts campaign page if you would like to use that.
If we can get enough MPs to support tightening up ticket reselling (ideally putting a cap of 10% markup on unauthorised resale), then we have a chance of making the secondary market work in the interests of fans, not the touts.
Don't forget to tell me what they say in reply - e-mail me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
You can also spread the word on Twitter and social networks - the hashtag is #tickettoutsbill, and the link to my campaign page is http://j.mp/Fans1st
Talked out by Cameron's Tories, but not forgotten... Catch up on the ticket touts campaign here >
