    Not that I am condoning the selling of these tickets. How much of the 3 million raised by them is going to the starving? I never caught the exact figures. I think I switched off when the expenses reached over 2 million.

    As said elsewhere, the exercise is not to raise a few million, or a few hundred million pounds.

    It is to raise awareness and to coincide with the G8 summit, to put pressure on the rulers of the richest countries. To have Billions of pounds of debt written off.

    I believe that is going well and that Gordon Brown is doing a sterling job in helping to achieve that.

    On Monday I forked out 95 to send my kids and a friend to the HIM gig at Shepherds Bush Empire as a 13th birthday present for our youngest so the wife & I won't be looking at Live8 ones.

    does this not give bob the wrong idea?

    Why though? That's what EBay is all about...

    I'm disappointed they stopped all the auctions, there were some pretty imaginative ones...

    Some guy was raffling his tickets, 4.95 bought you a 1 in 200 chance of winning...

    Also at least one was going to benefit a charity, in fact, the winning bidder was instructed to send the money direct to the charity.

    I think Bob's just pissed off he didn't think of it first. If I'd won tickets I'd have put them on EBay too.
