An honest person would have given credit to the source that they copy and pasted (in a vain attempt at trying to sound intelligent). Or at least paraphrase or change a few words around to make it sound like your own shite that your spouting. FAIL.

Gas man Bren - the only executive decision being made by you in the near future is ‘Superman or Batman pj’s tonight’.....

Although in reality it’s whatever mammy leaves out for you after your bath.

Why would there be customs duties associated with intra-EU deliveries ?

Brexit? Is that still a thing? Hard to tell with all the Covid19 and gay MMA stuff going around these days.

I've bought a couple of bits for the bike this week from Fowlers in the UK, separate items but totaling around €400 mark and nothing about duty or anything. Shipped via Parcel Motel.
