Fans who buy tickets for Radio 1's Biggest weekend in Swansea on reselling sites have been warned that they won't be able to get into the festival. The news comes after tickets sold out in minutes, leaving thousands of people devastated that they couldn't get their hands on any of the 26,000 allocated per day for the Swansea event. They cost £18 per day (with a £4.50 booking fee). The BBC's website states that tickets may not be sold, traded, or offered for sale; and may not be used as a prize or for any other promotional or trade purpose by any organisation other than the BBC.

First, they ditched the music. Now, the Wetherspoon pub chain has decided to leave the world of social media, closing its Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts in a move that has – of course – gone viral online. The firm’s boss, Tim Martin, says the decision was made in response to reports about the use of social media to troll MPs and others. He also suggests that closing the accounts will not affect his business “whatsoever” – although one wonders how the decision will change the business for those staff who are presumably employed to run them. There is an obvious irony in Martin worrying about people haranguing public figures when he himself takes every opportunity to have a pop at anyone who opposes Brexit. Martin, one of the few high-profile business figures to back Britain’s EU withdrawal, even used a Wetherspoon trading update to accuse other business leaders and the media of spreading “misinformation” about the … [Read more...] about Is anyone surprised that Tim Martin forced Wetherspoons to get rid of all its social media accounts?
