Rio Judge Orders Arrest of Top Farron Donor

marcus evans

A judge in Rio has ordered the arrest of a top donor to Tim Farron. Marcus Evans, whose firm was previously under fire for selling unlicensed rugby tickets, is one of four men at the centre of a new Olympics touting scandal. His company THG Sports is alleged to have obtained vast quantities of Irish tickets to be resold to the public at exorbitant rates “under the camouflage of hospitality packages.” Pretty much every major sporting event of the last few years has seen Evans, his companies, or one of his employees embroiled in scandal and unseemly allegations. The 2010 football World Cup and Ryder Cup both led to Evans being embroiled in allegations of illegal reselling, even gaining the title “the biggest ticket tout in the world.” What is it with Farron and accepting dodgy cash?

Quote of the Day

Andrea Leadsom told BBC Radio 4’s Today

“He’s made his views on Brexit on the record, and the problem with that of course is that the chair’s impartiality is absolutely essential. … He’s made his views known on Brexit… it’s a matter for him but nevertheless it’s a challenge and all colleagues need to form their own view of that.”
