So it is expensive but not prohibited. Freestyle via Ilford/Harman can presumably do it less expensively than Freestyle via Slavich or so Simon Galley has to hope for the future .

Slavich as far as I know still exports to the rest of Europe including the U.K. We in the U.K. must trust Slavich's shipping point more or maybe it is all transported via the Channel Tunnel.

Not a problem for me but I still think that the basic reason hasn't yet been "drilled down to".

I always thought that shipping via ships wasn't a problem terrorist-wise. and if it isnt bombs then what else is it and what has brought about new restrictions

It's normally only the "silver birds" that give concerns of that nature
