I don't know... do we want transparency or not? Do we want an itemised bill or not?

It is as Foolestroupe said. Large events and even small ones are using private companies to manage ticket sales. In the "Big Society" you will see more of these "extra" charges on many purchases for goods and services, especially as public services and charities turn into commission based local area trading companies and social enterprises.
