New user here, I'm in the UK and have been following BC with interest (and regret) ever since I saw it at $0.70. Between now and then I've wanted to buy ~£1k worth of BC, but I can't for the life of me figure out how to buy a bunch safely.
On MtGox, the Euro bank transfer sucks because I have to send in EUR which is tricky for me, also with those there will be extortinoate bank fees involved.
Britcoin seems too expensive, and too new for me to trust. Example is, £1k GBP will get me 81.4 BC, but at the same time 81.4 BC on MtGox will cost me $1,398 USD which is ~£860, so using britcoin I've just lost 14% of the transaction somehow.
I'm not too keen on sending first to people on this forum either, I'm not familiar with it and I'm well aware of the scams around.
Is there any way I can easily, safely and fairly buy BC with GBP?
