I've been told that the UK '$=£' pricing is due yet again to our 'friend' the taxman.
Dealers have to pay import tax where as private individuals don't. That is on top of the usual 'Vodka and Tonic' at 17.5%
Incidentally 'The Favourite Spot' seems to be changing over to a 'Buy-it-now' mode of selling.
