Tickets? I love tickets!

The Culture, Media and Sport select committee has been looking into the issue of ticket touting. The Entertainment industry has asked them to deal with the huge profiteering going on, not of course because it is unfair to the punters, but because they aren't seeing the money.
As you would expect all of the industry suggestions take very little of what is best for the public into account. What would we like? To buy tickets, preferably without huge booking fees, while also having ability to dispose of any tickets that turn out to be spare!
Prominent dairy farmers such as Michael Eavis would of course like the whole practice banned entirely so they can issue their photo ID tickets in comfort.
