Disney and the Great Euro Ripoff?

I was walking around the Disney Store with my family yesterday and noticed a few “interesting” prices.


Now with an approximate conversion rate of £1 to €1.50 that should really be closer to €18.00, but it doesn’t stop there:


Same price in Sterling but €6 more, and then:


This item is £2 more than the previous 2 but €4 more than the first and €2 less than the second! Each one is far more than the current exchange rate.

Now I don’t know about you but this pricing makes me confident that this country is absolutely right to keep Sterling as our currency. If everyone else followed the same example we’d end up being severely ripped off… more so than we appear to be already.
