Is ticket allocation for South Shields Lecture fair?

I MUST say that when the ticket allocation for the SS Lecture was carried out by the MP’s office via the Town Hall, those of us who do not work, or have connections at Harton Technology College had a greater chance of receiving a ticket.

At least all who were genuinely interested in the lecture had to apply by the same method and therefore had an equal chance.

It seems this is no longer the case, which is disappointing.

As the ticket allocation is done via the school, now it seems that by the time the staff, their friends and family have one, there will never be the chance to attend again!
