What frustrates us is some items made in the UK are so cheap in the US and even allowing for shipping, import duties, then the 20% VAT all of which compound it's still cheaper to buy from the US. So much for free trade which was supposed to equalise market prices to a certain extent.
How many people in the UK have $100K student loan bills at 22? How many people in the UK go into bankruptcy because they got cancer or were in a bad accident?

The socialist safety net needs to be funded somehow. Personally I would gladly trade my student loan payments and health insurance payments for a 20% increase in the price of film. I know the socialist system doesn't explain all of it but you have to take a holistic look at expenses.
