    Without doubt the stupidest idea I have ever heard. The sooner these tax dodgers get found out the better. I imagine there will be a time when they buy an island an fill it with monkeys to fill the parcels to avoid any sort of taxes.

    With that in mind I still buy from them as they are cheaper usually.

    Totally agree. If the Government employed the same tax lawyers that they did, maybe we wouldn't have to pay so much. But they will complain about their mates not paying what they might whilst quietly saying 'good on them'.

    I'd presume it wouldn't need to. With it been delivered within 30 minutes of pressing buy you should still be in (presuming delivery address is set to wherever you are.).

    Perhaps you elaborate on why you think it stupid?

    I love the idea. Order something and it gets delivered straight away. Great.
    I would rather have this type of mindless drone delivering my parcels than the type we have at the moment.

    Good point, and looking at the amount of Amazon parcels here around Xmas we would need a stacking system for Amazon Drones.

    Yeah. That's not going to go well. Someone's gonna get a drone to the face and Amazon'll be sued to oblivion.

    Not to mention the drones'll end up being stolen or broken.

    Or even better, someone will shoot it out of the sky! You'd get anything from a free pizza to a free PS4!
