LONDON - At Westminster, something incredible happened. An MP stood up and asked Parliament to pass a law.

Sharon Hodgson is the MP who has launched a private member's bill in the House of Commons, which apes a law that already exists and seems to work just fine in Queensland, Australia. The new bill will protect hundreds and thousands of loyal live show-going fans, is something unprecedented.

The law, which will put a cap on the maximum resale price of a ticket of +10%, will affect ticket touts, most of whom buy up tickets in bulk and sell them on eBay, Amazon and other sites for over 200% of the original price.

"I think that this, if it does come to law, is amazing. It will actually serve the people, and not just in self-interest of the government. Wow," said political expert and music fan, Jack Fords.

The law, which is a long time coming, is also one that actually isn't hurting the consumer or citizen.

However some brobdingnagian douchebags are whining.

"What will I do?" said Person X. "Now I can't cheat loyal fans from seeing their favourite bands! Oh no!" Because Person X once sold me an overpriced Jimmy Eat World ticket, his name is Fred Jenkins.
