Similar difference used to be in England between burglary which was breaking in at night and simple housebreaking which was during the day. Since the 1968 Theft Act, burglary is the offence for breaking in anytime.

 

Still differentiated in Scotland which doesn't use the Theft Act.

Ahh the good old Freetrade 300% tax on imported goods

 

Me thinks the rest of us should do the same on imports from here and buy from clean other trade places

I wouldn't trust the product of something supposed to be that expensive being sold for so cheap. It's either a knock off or it's been knocked off. 

 

As for "deserving" to be stolen from for not having your shop not like Fort Knox? Really?
