Councils flog tickets for General Election results announcements

Cash strapped councils are hoping to boost their income by selling tickets so that those seeking exciting midweek entertainment can witness in person, returning officers tell Tory MPs they’ve lost their seats.

Doris Clegg, a North East Somerset constituent, told NewsBiscuit that she’d cancelled her weekend holiday in Bognor and would be spending the money on a ticket to watch the smug smile drain from her MP’s face instead. “I don’t know yet how much the tickets will be going for”, she said, “but if the holiday money doesn’t cover it, I'll cancel my bingo club subscription as well.”
