After reading about Amazon in the article linked to below, people might think twice about going to Amazon - but probably not:

Yes, the owner of Sports Direct, a Brit, but who was paying UK tax, was found doing this, he was castigated, hauled before committees, etc,etc, and his feet didn't touch the ground.
I feel personally that was correct, but there in London is the same set up, run by a multi national business, registered outside of the UK doing, what I see as exactly the same thing, and paying a pittance in tax, what will happen there?
Even the stooge who went in under cover,was a marathon runner, and was totally knackered.
If you kept someone in your house as your slave and locked them in the garage, you would be prosecuted for modern day slavery.
Don't get me started, enough said.

It turned up today but I won't be using them again if you have to wait over a month for a delivery I will pay that bit more for one that is in stock. Most sites say awaiting stock if you put something in your basket that isn't in stock when you order if not when you look at it to decide to order one site that was only 6 dearer said awaiting stock then I found this site, all I wanted was a spare battery for the camera.

I'm glad it's arrived at last. I suppose you could say"better late than never", but it's still not very good!
