The censors at Manchester Pride have been busy removing valid questions about day tickets from their Facebook page today.
I am publishing screengrabs here so that everyone can see exactly what Manchester Pride doesn’t want you to read. I will be doing this regularly.
As you can see Manchester Pride’s explanation was completely bogus. Refusing to sell a day ticket but selling the same person a much more expensive weekend pass can’t possibly have any effect on crowd safety on that particular day as the person goes ahead and walks in either way.
How could they tell someone no day passes were available immediately after the parade on Saturday afternoon but then later on that evening only offer a day pass to someone who wanted a weekend pass? So in each case the person ended up paying more. One wanted a day ticket but paid for a weekend. The other wanted a weekend ticket but had to pay for two day tickets for Saturday and Sunday.
Is this fraud? Perhaps a case of “buyer beware.” But it’s certainly unethical and exploitative.
