Show us the money


Highly talented Irish gusset-moisteners Westlife have created a storm of protest over plans to charge fans a whopping £14.99 for special access to their new website.

The boy band claims that subscription to 'Westlife Platinum' - due to a 29 October launch - will give hormone-crazed teens extra footage and interviews.

Naturally, this has upset their loyal fans who have been expressing their disapproval on the BBC's Newsround site.

Among the tearful teenyboppers is Lucy, 14: Hi I am Westlife's biggest fan, but I think it is not OK for them to charge me for just looking at there website. I mean, don't they make enough money when I buy there albums, videos books etc?

Apparently not. And what about young Jem, 13?: I think Westlife are being selfish wanting more money. They have enough already and it is particularly tasteless regarding the recent attacks on America because there are starving people much more in need of money than they are. I think their plan should be dropped immediately.

We couldn't agree more. In fact, why waste £14.99 on five short Irishmen when we have a perfectly good short Irish crooner here at Vulture Central. Intrigued? Our operators are standing by to take your call... ®

If you can't wait until 29 October, why not visit Westlife's current website?. It's a flashtastic multi-media experience, to be sure.
