that's the trouble... it doesn't matter who you vote for there is always going to be a government...!
yes, the price difference between here and america does exist, but it works both ways...
I took a loot at http://shop.netgrocer.com
consider this a 8oz (220g) tin of dole pinaple chunks from the american site costs $1.05 (XE says this is ~55p)
the same weight and brand tin from ASDA costs just 34p (~$.066)...
generally, all hardware goods (though especially electronic goods) are cheaper in America, (including computers, software and cars).
but all personal items are cheaper in the UK, including food, medication, cosmetics, clothes are (generally) cheaper in the UK.
