Tickets for Glasgow papal Mass sell quickly
August 20, 2010
Three quarters of the 100,000 tickets for the September 16 papal Mass in Glasgow have already been sold, according to a spokesman for the Church in Scotland. “That is quite a remarkable result considering the timetable was so tight and we had to try and distribute the bulk of the passes during the peak summer holiday period,” the spokesman added. The tickets went on sale four weeks ago.

I'd like to know, for the record, how many people obtained a ticket, and declined to hand over 20 quid?

Now, now. The tickets were not SOLD. You can't sell tickets to a Mass. They were given away, and those who got them were asked to make a contribution of twenty pounds to help defray expenses. The Daily Record story at the link, by the way, makes that clear. Whoever rewrote it made the error. Tsk tsk.
