GROAN !!- according to multiple News medial,they think allowing touts to sell tickets on the sly in Scotland or Northern Ireland for England or Wales games IS CLOSING A LOOPHOLE.

The Daily Mail say
New legislation which closes a loophole allowing some World Cup tickets to be legally touted comes into effect on Monday.The law makes it a criminal offence for anyone in England and Wales to re-sell tickets for any game in the tournament, not just the ones in which England are already scheduled to play. It was previously not against the law to trade second-round tickets.

A loophole allowing some World Cup tickets to be legally touted is being closed with new legislation coming into effect two months before this summer's finals kick off in Germany.

The law makes it a criminal offence for anyone in England and Wales to re-sell tickets for any game in international football's most prestigious tournament.

So me good old mate Jock can pull faces at me as he openly flogs his duff tickets in good old Rajland over the boarder where it isn't illegal ?

How is this closing a loophole ?

I think you will now find it opens another bloody big one as English touts move to Scotland to do business !.

Is the establishment this stupid,this blind,this ignorant,as to think people will not just carry on up north in North Britain ?

Only banning touting in isolation in England and Wales is a farcical sham,that has me both laughing and,grumbling in equal measure,how on earth does the Raj think not banning it everywhere is a smart idea ?

Oh oh it's so hard to just move to Scotland,WHAT A DETERRENT,it's a hard life for a tout living free,as free as the wind blows,as free as the grass grows,born free in Scotland or Northern Ireland.

The Raj haven't closed a loophole just moved the goalposts somewhere else.

DUMB F**KERS
