Just remember the tax rule:

If its under £18 (without shipping) go for it!
If its over £18 (without shipping) it will be taxed, VAT'ed and god knows what else... Prepare to pay extra. :eek:

Sure is, and I've been taking full advantage of it!

:D

I just wish we could buy motors directly from the States - they're a fraction of the price!

Yep it's quite frustating especially when you add on P+p for motors.Just imagine being able to trot down down to asda and get a couple of packs of d-12-7's along side yer frozen chips and linda mccartney sausages..lol..we'll have to see if we can talk deepsky into getting the Estes bulk motor packs,they should be cheaper then:)

What exactly is a Linda McCartney sausage?
Does this have anything to do with her choice to be a vegetarian?
Do I detect a note of sarcasm here?

Nope ..no sarcasm what so ever,infact im quite partial to the entire L.M. range of vegetarian foods.This was just one of the products that came to me when i was indicating how much fun it would be to do my rocket shopping along side my grocerys like you can in the states at a WAL-MART for instance.I could have just as easily picked out Bernard Matthews turkey ribbed fillets,I meant no disrepect to vegiterians what soever.:)

Oh man, you guys are killing me!! Last time I was in London Only a couple of years ago), it was $1.20 to the pound. Now it is $1.90!!

I would kill for some Bangers and Mash, or a good hearty pasty.

Don't forget the "Bubble and Squeek!"

It;s funny, I love some English food, like 'Toad in the Hole' and ;Welsh Rarebit', but Bubble and Squeak, and Eel Pie just never did anything for me.

Just give me a few Pork Pies, a pint of Bitter (anything cask conditioned is fine), and I am all set!!
