Van charity idea is just the ticket

By Lindy McDowell

Published 30/10/2013

Any Van fan who would give their eye teeth for a ticket to the concert to celebrate his Freedom of the city award (no such thing as a free Freedom?) must be sickened to hear that councillors have been given four tickets apiece. The greed! Surely the council would have been able to accommodate a bigger audience if they'd asked him to turn on the Christmas lights and give us all a couple of tunes when he was at it. But the best solution, given the current outcry over ticketing, is the suggestion from the man in the street on the TV news. Let councillors have their tickets but ask them to give £100 each to charity as a goodwill gesture. Van (above) could decide on the charity. Fair, no?
