Sterling / Rate = Punt
4.99/0.81 = 6.16049382716
VATUK = 0% (Books)
VATIE = 12.5%
Punt * (1+VATIE) = Justified Price ...
6.16049382716 * (1.125) = 6.930555555556
only 10p out, and I didn't do the usual 25% markup removal trick that would
prove that at the moment £7.02 is reasonable, the argument *should* be that
4.99 is steep for 82 pages, even PCLive doesn't cost that much !
