you can't. i'm waiting for the limit to be removed
btw this is an old problem, at least now if you want to pay a ridiculous amount of money for the dispatchment you can.
If i buy a mill machine from UK in italy or in france i pay the same money. This is the problem, not the "7.5£"

We are in the UK. We don't have the sun. What we do have is pragmatism.
The mill weighs 600kg. At that weight, you pay more the further you want to go. But that wasn't the point. The point was that is cost money to move things from place to place. It's not just the physical cost of the movement, but any ancillaries. In the case of some countries, the rate of 'loss' of deliveries means to compensate for that, the delivery cost is higher.
Don't blame the RPF or suppliers, when the blame lies elsewhere. Presumably in corrupt people who say something hasn't been delivered when it really has. Do you complain about car insurance in the same way? Car insurance prices are much higher than they should be because of bogus claims raising prices for everyone. Everyone suffers because of a few crooks. Same thing, or at least similar.
If RS are offering free delivery on something, they are making that money back elsewhere. There is no such thing as FREE delivery (does your postman work for free? Does the airline carrying the item do it for free? Is ther packaging it is sent in free? Nope to all). The cost has to be absorbed somewhere, and that is in increased item prices.
