Aha

I've bought Canadian booze via France so I didn't have to pay duty and VAT on it.  It's legal as its paid by the original importer from the EU - well it should be.  The UK apparently has a very sus record on that and as a result we owe £Bs in unpaid duty related EU contributions.

Last week there were signs of a clamp down on Chinese sites selling via Amazon and eBay  https://news.bloombergtax.com/daily-tax-report-international/uk-red-flags-tax-evading-sellers-to-amazon-ebay-alibaba-2

Aye... Perhaps if they didn't charge such ridiculously high rates of duty and VAT people wouldn't try and avoid paying them eh...? ::)
Have to pay for society somehow.  This is where it all goes https://www.ukpublicspending.co.uk/

I ordered this on November 28th...

Thought it would be fun to keep an eye on the dog while I was out and also perhaps a bit of extra security while we were away over Xmas...

...arrived in the village yesterday... facepalm:

Left Brussels on December 15th and got to Cyprus on January 5th...

...then another 7 days to get to Pissouri from Larnaca!  lol:

Looks good, shame about the delivery.  Gets good reviews and only £32  Shocked:

I'm thinking more about outside CCTV but procrastination continues to rule the day
