Top marks for The Scotsman’s Brian Ferguson for his exposé of the payment of £150,000 of taxpayers’ money to the T in the Park organisers DF Concerts.
Given the high price of the tickets, I do not see how it was a necessary to chip in to the event finances with a further £150,000. It certainly did not help avoid the chaos of the logistics and traffic jams which appear to have been inadequately marshalled.
This matter raises serious questions and should be referred to Audit Scotland.
