Captain James T Kirk to stop selling gear to the UK

Fans of William Shatner might be disappointed after 31st December as is to stop selling his merchandise to the UK due to higher costs.

He wrote: "UK folks; looks like your government is wanting to force vendors outside of your country to collect VAT on orders being shipped to the UK starting 1 Jan.

"I had my staff investigate costs & it's over £1000/yr just to file these forms via a service. That's too much for a small store."

OMG a superstar whingeing for only £1,000 :headscratch:
Perhaps we should all chip in and help him out.


I might have the day off today!
