  1. I heard about this from my friends in the States.

    $15 but the exchange rate is $1.30.

    It should be £11.53

    Why are the UK losing a pound or two?

  2. That Aint funny. if you don’t like British people leave for you’re belovied EU. 🙂

    All I am saying is Britains being ripped off. If someone like me can do the calculation why cannot Bazos.

  3. I see in the US news just one day later Amazon has
    decided to do a
    removal of employee share and incentive schemes.
    Call me cynical but I feel they had a little meeting and planned to announce the good news the day before the bad. 🙂
    In my humble view this is all about the rising share prices. That they might have to pay employees.
