    It's clearly marked your ticket is valid until 12 midnight only.

    So past midnight equals no admittance. Common Sense.

    Unless he was really cute, then I'd let him past
    If you are doing a bit of a admittance idea, say its like the bus = a club which says free entry to midnight and the bus stop is the entrance and they wont let you in till 12.05 thereby you have to pay for admittance.

    You may have been at the front door before midnight and there was no queue but they just dont serve you till after midnight its not because of you that entry wasnt allowed till after the free period.

    Clubs may be lenient on 5 mins?

    Not at many I have been to, I have been to a club like 5 to 10 when its free to 10 and been asked to pay and when you query it the bouncers claim its after 10pm when its not even had one say "its 10.01" in the past.

    The only times I have ever been let in after the free period was in my local I went to weekly and the staff knew me by name they said they wouldnt charge me despite being past time because they knew I was queuing up.

    Would entirely depend on who the passenger was, the area they were travelling in their age and gender and whether travelling alone.
    But shouldn't justice be blind?

    A Club is slightly different, yes there is bound to be a queue to get in, they would realise this and take note.. A bus? Less likely to have a big queue to get on - plus most clubs do free entry by fliers, so clubs probably allow a leway simply because it attracts more punters, meaning more drinks, meaning more money! A bus, not so much. It's clearly marked as 'valid until midnight', so no admittance.
