      Scalpers Should Be Applauded Not Persecuted

      Libertarianz spokesman Richard McGrath today launched a broadside at
      organisers of the Wellington Sevens rugby tournament, suggesting they
      "mind their own business and leave those people wishing to on-sell
      tickets alone."

      "The persecution of so-called ticket scalpers is a shameful attack on
      free trade," he said. "People should be allowed to exchange
      commodities as they wish, provided both parties to any sale are
      willing participants."

      "TradeMe and other online auction sites should have had the balls to
      tell the Sevens organisers to leave their customers alone."

      "The result of this is that fewer tickets will be available for sale
      online, and it will be more difficult for rugby fans to obtain seats
      at the Sevens, thanks to the envy-ridden mentality of the event
      organisers."
