Import Duty - I have refused my delivery.

Just thought you all might like to know that OpenMoko shipments are
attracting import duty in the United Kingdom.

Despite paying USD104.99 for 'expedited' shipping, my order arrived with
a demand for GBP57.19 in import duty. This should either be factored
into the shipping charge or, as these devices are technically 'computer
peripherals', described as 'computer peripherals' in order that they do
not attract import duty.

I have REFUSED my delivery and it is being returned to the depot and,
presumably, will be returned to sender.

I either want a new shipment that does not attract import duty *or* I
want a full refund.

I know these are developer releases but I would have hoped that OpenMoko
would have sorted out the international shipping issues properly.

I'm annoyed!
