As a “fawning capitalist lackey and a World Bank-loving, anti-poor, rich world boosting, multinational adoring sellout” *ahem* I tend to agree with the Guardian Newsblog’s Neil McIntosh’s thoughts on Sir Bob’s ill-tempered outburst against Ebay.. and his ill-tempered threats. Also worth noting, as pointed out by Neil McIntosh – “It’s not, after all, like there’s not already posh seats on sale – quite rightly, but somewhat inconsistently, they’re offering £1,250 tickets, including champagne breakfast, to corporates who just [want] to say they were there.” Ebay, meanwhile, has suspended the hoax bidders’ accounts.

You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
