Amazon is selling it with VAT.

Amazon.co.uk is selling it for 7.99, the price they have to sell it for because of the contract they have with the publisher. They are not charging VAT. None of that purchase price will be paid to the government in Amazon's VAT bill.

Ebooks.com are selling it for 6.66, presumably because their contract with the publisher says that they're allowed to.

Given this, I would expect Amazon to be in talks with the publishers to get an agreement to a lower price.

Unless Amazon move on this, I'll certainly be considering buying ebooks elsewhere.
