Do any members have a view on the idea of the overseas packet? For myself, I'm all for it and would like to know more.
I do wonder whether we UK based members might struggle to find material attractive to those living in Malaysia, which in turn raises the question of whether buying trends there would match those here.

Thoughts, anyone?

The biggest obstacle to an overseas packet is customs duty and taxation. The minute that you cross borders, you are in a minefield. If overseas members want a packet, the only practical solution is to run it locally between local members.

good point Len,
and insurance too ! but a packet within a country could be practical, we just need a volunteer to run it.
