Exclamation Taxes get applied in UK - Manchester goes underground

Funny thing - went to buy some tobacco from my usual Indian shop and saw that there was no tobacco on the shelves anymore. It was all under the counter. Apparently customs officials actually started to perform checks so regular tobacco doesn't get sold. UK DUTY on all Shisha! I was still able to get some at a good price since I am a regular there but I don;t know how much this will last. Soon I either have to get a job or go on vacation in Egypt.

(posted a similar thread before - not sure if there was an error displaying it or if it was deleted )

I have always bought online from the US even before these strict measures came into place because the pound is much stronger than the dollar so it works out alot cheaper as long you buy a decent amount even if the expensive shipping I'd included. Plus the shisha scene is much bigger in the US than the UK so more variety too

The same thing happened to me in Edgeware Road, all tobacco gone from the shelf. But it was still on the shelf at an Arabic shop called Green Valley (Nakhla)
