A Tenner you say?
You thought you heard it all - is it not enough that some people (we like to think of them as non-conformists) are pocketing an extra £2.75 from the good people of the Republic of Ireland and all the other members of the European Union who have signed up to the use of the Euro as their currency? (such as Austria, Belgium, Cyprus, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Malta, the Netherlands, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia and Spain).
oooooh, it's about £0.85/ Euro making the publication in question cost about £12.75. nasty. nasty.
On the other hand we welcome you to join Jimmy and Arnold's 'nibrding' for the princely sum of £2.75 - basically the price of a sandwich from most reasonably priced cafes / service stations. 275 penny chews, nearly enough to buy a copy of Viz, half a gallon of petrol. 2.75 x 5 lighters for a pound. A big bottle of cider. Fair enough if you know the right people you can get all of those goodies for £2.75 but we promise that if you part with your hard-earned £2.75 we have a host of benefits lined up for you.
Rather than stimply adding on 50% to our base fee in order to convert £'s into Euros we will promise to stick to the internationally recognised exchange rate instead of making up the rules as we go along.
By the way, don't worry, those Blackbird pictures are free - don't thank us, thank yet another convert to the cause.
