I'm sure that the Scottish team just created that to have England say, "Please, do leave us alone, we don't want that kind of stuff being associated with us."

I come on EB to forget about all these horrible things.
The Americans will love it at least.

Any ideas how to open this tube? There's not much to grip with my fingers and it's like this on both ends. :?

Chainsaw? :)

The end cap of these tubes is part of the tube - so look about 1/4 of the way along the tube and you should see tape where the packer has sealed at the join. If you cut the tape there, the end 1/4 of the tube should slide off

You can see it on the tube on the right in this photo

Just use a Stanley knife and cut around the edge of it.

Right lads and lasses , if you have a spare 20 mins or so , have a good read of this below and take it in.

It's about the dreaded Ebay / Pitney Bowles Global shipping programme .

Become educated about it and let's try and stop those American sellers from using it ...Knowledge is power.

It truly is a terrible service,and if i'm looking for something and this is on the listing i avoid it, its as simple as that.
I don't know how the postal service differs over there,
but i only seem to have import charges from people off of here (who seem overzealous with insurance etc) not from artists or mondo or what have you,the postage is cheap and no import charges there's no consistency it seems.

I have a 2 month long on-going complaint with Ebay regarding their global shipping programme and how the value of original art is wrong. I have been fobbed off 5 times now with stupid template emails.

Another one here who avoids any auction with that Global Shipping rubbish attached to it.

:D That is a lot of tape! That must be a few years old, the Mondo shipping room must be about 10x that size now with the amount they churn out!
