The outcry that the BBC has spent £27,000 entertaining "celebrities" and "politicians" at the Proms is inevitable. The Telegraph would be only to happy to follow this. Better than anything negative about HSBC. Presumably this is really a product of the setup with the Proms. How much would any major company spend thus if the full costing were calculated? Having to buy tickets and programmes enables this figure to be calculated. The outrage is surely that those tickets were kept from real concert-goers.
