Sorry to lower the tone somewhat after the last post. But can anyone tell me why it costs so much to send books by post to Europe? Considering that it is a near neighbour, rates are so high comparatively to sending books off to Singapore, Australia or the USA. Not only that, but to put the tin lid on it I sent books off to Holland recently and it was actually cheaper to send them airmail than surface mail! How come? Some consumer watchdog ought to have a sniff into all this mess and work out how much we're being conned.
Grumpy, but striving for contentment.
