I agree with you in principle.
However, we have to be realistic about this. I bought a new computer last week on amazon.co.uk for 850 euros incl delivery. The price in Harvey Norman and Powercity was 970 euro. (Strange how they had the exact same price for the exact same computer)
I pay a marginal tax rate of 52%, and that 120 euro difference means a lot to me. In addition, the Irish government lost out on the VAT I paid HMG.
A great idea, but not for big ticket items.
