Hmmm, we're very against water charges here ATM. I would elaborate, but I'd have to ban myself....

Nope. Jones law is straightforward protectionism and I don't think they've ever pretended otherwise.

Protectionism. That's a bigger word than Marmalade!

Is that the same reason so many Ribnetters buy sh1t direct online from 'Murica on account of how it's so punitively expensive here/where you are?

'Murica seems to be a bit of a paradox, RIBs seem to be outrageously expensive, even compared to our prices which ain't cheap. I'm assuming it's down to supply & demand, RIBs being even more of a niche in the US than here. But on the other hand, "stuff" can be much cheaper, electric trailer winches spring to mind. Then you get the guy who's paying $700 a pop for a bit of laser cut & welded stainless & quoting $150/hour labour. I could get that at a fraction of the price from my suppliers here. The economics don't add up🤔
