Yeah, saw that on Facebook. In the US to UK direction it's been fairly noncompetitive for some time (I think the last thing I got from a US seller was a set of Pretender Monster shells) and the exchange rate tends to prohibit UK to US sales. Amazon US haven't been too bad though.

Goes some way to explain why getting stuff posted from the other side of the world is cheaper. Good read! Thanks for the link.

On the plus side for Americans, there's not going to be much worth buying from the UK soon (apart from the NHS, amirite?).

If Trump has his way there won't be anything worth buying from America.
