How?
« on: February 09, 2021, 11:10:55 pm »
.. can the Chinese send stuff around the world for half nothing?

As I'm sure you're aware I recently ordered a switch for my car from China:

Cost a tenner yet they can afford to send it on a sightseeing tour, tracking details (to date) as follows:
 
Estimated date of arrival at the post office

21 Feb 2021 - 26 Feb 2021, 12 - 17 days remaining

The forecast is not 100% certain, and is based on 41 packages delivered in the last 60 days

Hector Grey lived in Donaghmede, where  The Beeches houses are, Streamville House IIRC.
Panel might confirm it.
