I have been watching this thread with interest.
If I go onto E-bay and look for a book for instance. The prices for an item in the USA is about the same as the same one in the UK however postage cost from the USA is about twice the cost of the book and the one from the UK is usually 'Free Postage'.
If I buy from France, Germany or even Rumania the postage is nominal, a very small fraction of that from America.

Today I posted 2 small envelopes(identicle sizes & wieghts).
1 packet was sent to Canuck - in Agassize, B.C & 1 packet to Stanforth in Blighty.

To mail the packet to Agassiz, B.C. IN CANADA was &16.95 (+ tax)
To send Stanforth's packet to Blighty, was only $ 9.96

NOW I know why nobody has been placing orders on my website!!  
 
I received your packet at 11am GMT today.
 
By the way, thank you very much, it will be used frequently.
 
Regards,
Geoff
